Our Impact

Vibrant Communities

We strengthen and empower healthy 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 approach

Our community work is focused on three core areas: Increasing access to healthy food, encouraging healthy living, and nurturing Campbell neighborhoods.

Increase access to healthy food

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, healthy, and affordable food.

Healthy Corner Store Initiative

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.

Encourage healthy living

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.

Supporting Big Green’s work to promote health and education

Big Green creates healthy places where kids can learn and grow, including in one of our Campbell communities of Downers Grove, Illinois. Through their learning gardens, they connect education and health, increase access to healthy foods, and turn schoolyards into vibrant green spaces.

Nurture Campbell neighborhoods

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.

Partnering with the Trust for Public Land

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.

Campbell Soup Foundation

Since 1953, the Campbell Soup Foundation has provided financial support to nonprofits in our hometown communities.

Employee giving

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 create an impact in their local communities.

 

Providing relief during times of disaster

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.

Improving healthy food access and education

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.

Signature programs

Since 2011, our investments have centered on our Campbell’s Healthy Communities program. We launched the 10-year, $10 million commitment to improve the health of young people in our hometown of Camden, New Jersey. With the program coming to an end, we’re using what we learned to inform what’s next—transforming the school food environment.
