By collaborating with World Central Kitchen (WCK), Nestlé will help feed hungry people in communities that have been stricken by extreme weather events related to the climate crisis. Nestlé will support WCK in an initial one-year agreement and with a CHF one million donation to its Climate Disaster Fund.

Nina Kruchten, head of corporate donations, Nestlé, said, “We chose to partner with World Central Kitchen due to its close alignment with our business and our donations activities related to hunger relief and food access. Through its frontline work across the globe, WCK helps ease increasing food insecurity issues related to climate change. And in keeping with Nestlé’s purpose, WCK does it through the power of food.”
The non-profit has three areas of focus:
Providing meals to hungry people impacted by climate disasters. WCK brings food, water and other resources to affected areas.
Building resilience in frontline communities. WCK supports communities to feed themselves and helps farmers adapt to a rapidly changing climate. It invests in local food producers and teaches foodservice professionals and culinary students the WCK model. That way they are ready to respond in their own communities when needed.
Changing the systems that leave people hungry and thirsty. WCK works with local and state governments to take successful models and scale them up.
