Kraft Heinz Pantry Day Helps Fight Food Insecurity


TORONTO — Kraft Heinz Canada is holding its second annual Kraft Heinz Pantry Day tomorrow, Canada’s largest one-day, donation-matching event for Food Banks Canada.

Canadians are encouraged to purchase a participating Kraft Heinz product in-store or online, which will then be matched with a donation. Participating products include any variety of Kraft peanut butter, Philadelphia cream cheese, Kraft salad dressing, Kraft dinner, Classico pasta sauce, Heinz by Nature, Maxwell House coffee or Heinz ketchup.

The initiative is part of a larger five-year, $20-million product donation to Food Banks Canada. Kraft Heinz Canada has also enlisted the support of Damian Warner, Olympic gold medalist.

“Kraft Heinz Pantry Day brings our commitment to addressing food insecurity directly to Canadians, giving them an opportunity to join with us to collectively address food insecurity,” says Bruno Keller, president of Kraft Heinz Canada. “One in seven Canadian households struggled to get food onto tables during the pandemic, and that is one too many for us. As a company with products in so many pantries across the country, we truly feel it’s our responsibility to play a role in facing this important issue.”

“Partners like Kraft Heinz allow us to fulfill an important part of our mission, namely providing immediate food help for those experiencing food insecurity,” says David Armour, Interim CEO, Food Banks Canada. “For this, we’re extremely grateful.”

Since 2020, Kraft Heinz Canada has contributed 3,281,900 pounds in high quality-food donations to food banks across the country in response to COVID-19.
