Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that provide billions of meals to Americans through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies. These food banks have adapted to a new level of need during the pandemic, with many people seeking help for the very first time.
And here to talk about the many challenges they have faced, including an urgent need for increased funding, is Casey Marsh, the chief development officer of Feeding America.
One of the most iconic names in all of business is General Mills, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and their brands have been favorites of Americans for decades – Cheerios, Wheaties, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Häagen-Dazs, Pillsbury and many, many more. They’re also a company that has done an exceptional job of aligning their mission and core values into the very operations of their business and through their philanthropy. And here to discuss that with us is Mary Jane Melendez, the Executive Director of the General Mills Foundation.
