Campbell Soup Company today announced more than $1.5 million in grants to 22 organizations as part of the Campbell Soup Foundation’s annual grantmaking cycle and Campbell’s Healthy Communities, the company’s signature philanthropic program. The grantees include 11 organizations with operations in Camden, the home of Campbell’s World Headquarters.
The Campbell Soup Foundation’s grantmaking focuses on three key areas: increasing healthy food access; encouraging healthy living; and nurturing Campbell neighborhoods. The Campbell’s Healthy Communities program is focused on improving the health of young people in communities where Campbell has operations.
“We are proud of our 150-year history of giving back to the communities in which we operate,” said Kim Fortunato, President, Campbell Soup Foundation and Director, Community Affairs. “Campbell and our Foundation are a powerful community partner not only in Camden but in many Campbell communities. In addition to financial support, we are proud of our strong volunteer engagement program that supports our community partners in a variety of ways. Congratulations to this year’s outstanding recipients who are making a significant impact in their local communities.”
