Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets and the Kellogg Co. have partnered to tackle the issue of hunger in the communities they serve with a combined donation of $25,000 to CEO Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank. 

The donation is part of Kellogg’s Better Days Promise and Weis Markets’ 16th annual Fight Hunger program.

“At Weis Markets, we are committed to alleviating food insecurity in the communities we serve,” said Maria Rizzo, Weis Markets’ VP of marketing and advertising.

“We’re grateful for partners like Kellogg Company who share in our commitment to fighting hunger. This combined donation will help Northeastern Pennsylvanians who benefit from CEO Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank’s efforts.”

Food insecurity exists in every county in the U.S. In 2021, 53 million Americans utilized food banks, according to Feeding America.

“With 34 million people in America not knowing where their next meal will come from, the need to help feed and fulfill continues,” said Greg Carbone, VP of sales, Kellogg Co.

“Kellogg’s Better Days Promise is committed to feeding people in need, and we’re proud to partner with Weis Markets to support those facing hunger in our communities.”

Kellogg’s donation is part of its Better Days Promise environmental, social and governance strategy, which aims to create better days for 3 billion people by 2030. Since 2015, Kellogg has fed more than 219 million people facing hunger and reached more than 4.3 million children through feeding programs.

Weis Markets and its customers have donated more than $6 million to local food banks in the retailer’s seven-state market area since 2008 as part of its Fight Hunger program.
