Natures Path the first-ever certified organic cereal manufacturer in North America and leading breakfast and snack food company has successfully delivered more than one million bowls worth of donated food to 10 U.S. and Canadian organizations. In addition to the donated goods, Natures Path has raised more than $335,000 for their food bank partners and in addressing food insecurity, which is hitting record levels in the wake of the pandemic.

We know the compounding effects COVID-19 has had on food insecurity in North America, especially on children, said Jyoti Stephens, VP Mission and Strategy at Natures Path. In responding to this critical need, we more than doubled our annual commitment to deliver nutritious, organic food to as many families as possible.

Natures Paths organic foods including wholesome cereals, oatmeal and granolas were distributed to ten food banks and related organizations serving vulnerable communities across the U.S. and Canada. Among the organizations benefitting include Feed the Children (US), Second Harvest Canada (Canada), Blessings in a Backpack (US), Daily Bread Food Bank (Canada), Rubys Pantry (US), Greater Vancouver Food Bank (Canada), Second Harvest Orange County (US), and many more. These organizations were also the beneficiaries of Natures Paths monetary pledges, which matched every dollar donated with $5 worth of organic food.

So many children dont know where their next meal is coming from, said Nancy Major, Managing Director with Blessings in a Backpack of Waukesha County. Our partnership with Natures Path has helped to alleviate this stress in the Sussex community, and we are extremely grateful for Natures Paths generosity and ongoing support of our work to feed hungry children.

Since the start of the global pandemic earlier this year, the number of children and families facing food insecurity has been amplified, with more than 13 million children in the United States reportedly dealing with food insecurity every day. And in Canada, the percentage of households experiencing food insecurity has increased 45 percent from the year before, further raising the need for donations.

This marks the tenth year Natures Path has donated through the Eat Well Do Good program. Through the campaign, every dollar raised puts 5-12 times more food in the hands of vulnerable families and individuals.
