Since its founding in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1906, Kellogg has invested heavily in its home state. Kellogg owns and operates three manufacturing plants in Michigan and partners with six Michigan-based co-manufacturers and more than 55 ingredient suppliers to promote local sourcing. In 2018 alone, they invested more than $100 million in Michigan.
The company and its employees also donate time and resources to local organizations and help create a strong, vibrant community for the future. Over the past 10 years, Kellogg has pledged more than $34 million to United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region, and continues to be the largest donor to its annual campaign. They have contributed hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to the Food Bank of South Central Michigan and volunteered tens of thousands of hours at local organizations, including nearly 7,000 hours of volunteer service just in 2018. The company also sponsors many annual community events, including Cereal Festival, Field of Flight and the Festival of Lights, which help drive engagement and economic development in the region.
