United Supermarkets and Kellogg’s joined forces June 7 to donate $25,000 to Amarillo, Texas-based Snack Pak 4 Kids.
As part of the Nourishing Neighbors initiative and the Feed the Love campaign, this donation will go to help Snack Pak 4 Kids in its mission to fight food insecurity across the Amarillo community.
“We are blessed to be able to help our community through this amazing partnership with Kellogg’s,” said Paul Evans, RVP for the United Family. “The work that Snack Pak 4 Kids does for this community is so important, and we hope these funds will support their mission of helping children who are at risk of being hungry.”
Snack Pak 4 Kids started in Amarillo serving just 10 kids. Now, it has grown into an organization that now serves more than 10,000 kids in 51 different school districts.
“We value our partnership with United Supermarkets and initiatives like this are a key part of our aspiration towards Kellogg Company’s vision for a good and just world, where people are not just fed but fulfilled,” said Kathy McDonald, with Kellogg’s. “We are so proud to contribute to the important work of Snack Pak 4 Kids as we all collectively fight against hunger.”
