To help feed people in need, Kellogg is providing more than 2.1 million servings of cereal, bars and crackers to Feeding America to support area food banks.

“Kellogg and our partners want to do all we can to help families impacted by Florence,” said Kris Charles, senior vice president,global corporate affairs in a PR Newswire release. “This storm has ravaged some areas of the South, flooding cities and displacing many families. We hope to provide comfort and important nourishment by lending our support at this time when people need it most.”
