Conagra Brands is passionate about the food we make, and we firmly believe that everybody deserves access to delicious, high-quality food. However, extensive hunger research reveals that food insecurity is pervasive throughout the U.S. and around the world. We’ve also found that food insecurity disproportionately impacts African Americans, as they’re more than twice as likely to face hunger than white individuals, according to Feeding America®.

Conagra Brands, along with Conagra Brands Foundation and our employees, has a long history of taking action to address food insecurity in the communities our employees call home. We also nourish an inclusive culture that encourages openness, acceptance, and individual authenticity. Together, we take a holistic approach to make an impact on hunger by activating a variety of our resources, including employee volunteerism, product donations, and financial contributions.

The passion and energy with which our employees engage in the community are defining qualities that we admire and respect. This level of engagement extends well beyond any corporate initiative and is visibly demonstrated through direct personal actions including volunteerism, contributions, and nonprofit board service.
