Since 1953, The Campbell’s Foundation has supported our local communities through direct grants, employee matching gifts, and partnerships with local, regional, and national nonprofits that build healthy communities in our hometowns. We have three main focus areas: increasing food access, encouraging healthy living, and nurturing neighborhoods in communities where our employees live and work.
The Campbell’s Foundation provides grants to meet the needs of our local communities through two core grant programs: annual community impact grants and multi-year initiatives focused on a systems approach to improving food access.
Our multi-year initiatives support larger grants and partnerships focused on systems change related to food access and healthy living. With this funding, we support regional and national programs to address food insecurity, our signature Full Futures school nutrition program, and more. In our hometown of Camden, we are also proud to support:
Community Impact Grants provide funding to organizations that align with the Foundation’s three focus areas: increasing food access, encouraging healthy living, and nurturing Campbell’s neighborhoods. Employees from each of our locations nominate local nonprofits in their community to apply for grants.
We work to build and support healthy, thriving communities by providing grants in our office and manufacturing locations throughout North America.
In fiscal 2022, we made nearly $1 million in Community Impact Grants to 40 organizations in 30 Campbell’s locations, including:
Northeast Texas Trail Association
A 130-mile trail in the Campbell’s community of Paris, Texas, that surrounds the area with a safe public space to learn and play.
Friends of Zenger Farm
A working urban farm providing education about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development, and access to good food for all in Tualatin, Oregon.
In addition to providing over 100,000 meals a year in Camden, New Jersey through their meal program, Cathedral Kitchen provides social services and culinary job training to the community.
We support organizations working to create sustainable change in our communities.
Our grant programs are invitation-only. All organizations invited to apply for Community Impact Grants must operate their program in a local Campbell’s community (usually within 25 miles of a plant or office). Grants are unrestricted and can support general operations. Applications are reviewed for the following criteria:
