A year in review: Kerry contribute €2.3m in food, ingredients and financial support in response to COVID-19

Tuesday 18 May, 2021

To support local communities impacted by some of the challenges presented by COVID-19, Kerry launched a new programme, MyCommunity, to assist Kerry employees in implementing locally led community initiatives related to food, nutrition and health. The initial pledge by Kerry was €1m towards a community fund; in addition, Kerry gave each of its 26,000 employees one paid day for volunteering.

In the last year, many Kerry employees participated in the MyCommunity programme, whilst abiding by COVID-19 guidelines, to deliver food and meals to many communities worldwide, and helped to donate €2.3m in food, ingredients and financial support as well as 111k pieces of PPE to people in need.
