Collette has reached its goal of donating one million meals at a recent packaging event during the company’s annual Founder’s Day.
Collette launched the One Million Meals hunger initiative in 2016 to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary and to honoor its core value of giving back.
“There are so many people in need around the globe, and we feel fortunate to be able to make a real impact in their lives, both through our global workforce and our many wonderful partners,” said CEO Dan Sullivan. “Social responsibility has been and always will be a core pillar of our culture at Collette.”
To reach the ambitious goal, Collette not only mobilized the support of its 600 global employees, but also through a careful selection of partnerships and donations. Partnerships include Rise Against Hunger and Rhode Island-based Edesia.
Collette also donated to organizations such as Share our Strength, all of which works towards the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger.
