We strengthen and empower vibrant communities in our hometowns and support the neighborhoods where our employees live and work. It’s core to who we are and what we value. And it’s the commitment we make as a company that cares.
Our community work is focused on three core areas: Increasing food access, encouraging healthy living, and nurturing Campbell neighborhoods.
Through food distribution programs, incentives like fresh food vouchers, innovative food access points, and community gardens, we help ensure our communities have access to fresh, nutritious, and affordable food.
We partner with The Food Trust to support Camden’s corner stores in their efforts to stock and market fresh, healthy foods. Since the program started, we’ve helped over 40 stores serving 13 neighborhoods increase their fresh food offerings.
We know that access to good food is just one piece of the puzzle. To build healthy, vibrant communities, people need to eat better and move more. So we support initiatives to promote nutrition education and encourage physical activity.
The Food Bank of South Jersey is an official partner of Cooking Matters, a program started by Share Our Strength that empowers families with the knowledge and skills to cook and shop for nutritious foods on a budget. With programs for kids, adults, and families that are taught in schools, grocery stores, and other community settings, the Food Bank of South Jersey is helping to foster lifelong healthy habits.
Access to thriving public spaces can have a big impact on health in our local communities. We work to transform our hometowns with renovated parks, trails, bike lanes, and other safe spaces to play and be active.
We recently partnered with the Trust for Public Land to restore and improve five parks in Camden. These projects transformed the neighborhoods with beautiful public spaces where the community can gather, get outside, and stay active.

Since 1953, the Campbell Soup Foundation has provided financial support to nonprofits in our hometown communities.
We empower our employees to give back to causes they believe in. Through our program, we match charitable gifts, provide volunteer grants, and enable our employees to create an impact in their local communities.
When disaster strikes, our communities count on us to help. We take a two-tiered approach to disaster relief, starting with immediate food and financial aid followed by partnerships with local and national organizations to support long-term recovery.
Through our signature programs, we strive to make healthy food more accessible in our communities through the creation of sustainable food systems and nutrition education programs.
Our signature community affairs program, Full Futures, is a 5-year, $5 million commitment to the school nutrition environment. Launched in 2021, Full Futures builds on our learnings from Campbell’s Healthy Communities, a 10-year initiative to measurably advance the health of young people in our hometown of Camden, New Jersey.
