How we help our
For over 145 years, we’ve looked for ways to strengthen communities, particularly ones we call home like Camden, New Jersey. And by 2020, our goal is to measurably improve the health of young people by reducing childhood obesity and hunger.
Here are a few things we are proud of:
- 14,100 hours volunteered by our employees in one year
- $50 million of food donated to organizations such as Feeding America
- 28,000 hours of nutrition education in the Camden, NJ community for children and adults
- 107,000 hours of physical activity for Camden, NJ community youth
- $1.8 million in grants to nonprofit community service organizations from the Campbell Soup Foundation
Meet Ronnie Abrams from Shamong, New Jersey. He grows carrots and potatoes for our pilot plant in Camden, New Jersey, just like his father and grandfather before him.
We work with farmers like Ronnie through our Sustainable Agriculture Program, which builds on more than 145 years of practicing responsible management of agricultural resources.
Through the program we partner with contract farms to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, minimize water use, reduce reliance on fertilizer and pesticides, and improve soil quality.
We work hard to reuse, reduce and recycle. Our goal is to cut the environmental footprint of our portfolio – defined as water and greenhouse gas emissions per tonne of product – by 50 percent by 2020. Learn more about our our progress.
