Their Mission

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, an estimated 16 million children live in households that are food insecure, meaning they don’t have access to enough food to live active healthful lives. The ConAgra Foods Foundation is committed to raising awareness of child hunger in America, aggressively pursuing sustainable solutions to end it and building a community of people who are passionate about joining them in this fight to end child hunger.

As the philanthropic arm of ConAgra Foods, a leading food company, they support worthy causes that reflect the company’s social responsibility efforts. The key focus areas of their Foundation are child hunger and nutrition education. They work to ensure children have access to both food and facts about food to eat nutritiously, to live balanced lifestyles, and to succeed in school and life.

This is the essence of the ConAgra Foods Foundation’s Nourish Today, Flourish Tomorrow mission, which seeks to meet immediate needs as well as find innovative, long-term solutions in the areas of child hunger and nutrition education, by:

  • Investing in direct service programs such as Kids Cafes, summer feeding programs and Cooking Matters that feed and educate those in need.
  • Building capacity in leading nonprofits, such as Feeding America and Share Our Strength, to serve more people as well as create and bring to life innovative solutions to end child hunger.
  • Creating awareness and educating people about the problem of child hunger in America and then encouraging them to get involved.

How They Do It

They know they can’t do this alone. It’s why they’re committed to building a community of people who are passionate about ending child hunger. As they work toward this goal, they invest in partnerships with high-impact, nonprofit organizations that take an innovative approach to addressing needs in the areas of child hunger and nutrition education. They do this while continuing to build on their history of funding pilot programs that are proven to be groundbreaking, sustainable solutions.
