Kellogg will continue to support Feeding America in its efforts to assist food banks in Texas and Louisiana.Nearly 100 trucks containing donations of Kellogg’scereal, Pringles, Kellogg’s Nutri-Grainbars, Cheez-Itcrackers and Keeblercrackers and cookies were sent.

“We hope that our donations will help during this difficult time,”Charles said. “There is a lot of work ahead for those affected by the hurricane and Kellogg Company is committed to supporting Feeding America as it provides food to those in need.”
