Kraft is one of the largest food companies in the nation, and because their focus is creating healthy lifestyles, Kraft has teamed up with leading non-profit organizations which specialize in issues such as fighting hunger and building healthy lifestyles to help make a big impact. According to Kraft’s corporate website, here are some ways in which Kraft Foods gives back to its communities.

 

·         Kraft gives nearly $100 million in food, cash donations and volunteer support annually to hundreds of non-profit organizations

·         When disaster strikes, the company sends food, donates money and volunteers time to help those who need it the most.

·         Kraft helped fund the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s first Produce mobile, which delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods where produce is either not available or too expensive.

·         In Russia, 16 percent of children are overweight or obese. Kraft entered this partnership with Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)to teach school-aged children in Russia to cook healthy foods, increase physical activity and grow nutritious foods in school gardens.

·         The health 4 schools program is designed to engage students in the elements of a healthy lifestyle by promoting breakfast, gardening, cooking and active playing. Kraft has donated about $1 million since 2004 to launch the health 4 schools program at 75 schools in Gloucestershire, England.

As you can see, Kraft is certainly involved in its communities around the world. The company does not focus on one specific location, as it can be purchased in 150 countries. Kraft Food products have impacted the lives of millions, and the team at Kraft intends to maintain its focus of fighting hunger and promoting healthy lifestyles.
