Nestlé wants to make a real difference in each and every community we're a part of. And we're able to do that by forging partnerships with trusted and effective organizations across Canada.
Kids Help Phone
Nestlé Canada is a founding sponsor of Kids Help Phone, a national, bilingual, 24-hour, toll-free telephone and online counselling service that provides the immediate support children and youth need and deserve. It is completely confidential and anonymous. Every day, Kids Help Phone counsellors speak to kids from across Canada who have questions and concerns about issues like bullying, school, relationships, suicide and abuse.
Nestlé Canada is also a proud sponsor of Kids Help Phone's annual Walk So Kids Can Talk, the organization's major national fundraising event. A member of Nestlé's executive management team sits on the board of directors and Nestlé prints Kids Help Phone's toll-free telephone number on more than 1.5 million relevant products annually.
Particularly notable was the entrepreneurial initiative of a group of Nestlé Canada employees who worked with Kids Help Phone to create a golf tournament that has brought together Nestlé suppliers and customers to raise over 4.1 million dollars over the past 19 years.
Food Banks Canada
Everyone needs good food to live, learn and be happy. That's why Nestlé Canada donates regularly to Food Banks Canada. Food Banks Canada is a national coalition that represents the food bank community across Canada and co-ordinates the donations and transportation of food. This organization promotes public education on hunger in Canada and upholds a code of ethics to promote the dignity of food bank users. In addition, Nestlé employees are given time off from their job to volunteer at a local food bank. Nestlé is committed to helping people have good food for a good life.
Nestlé Canada supports the United Way and its member agencies through corporate support and internal campaigns. We are proud to partner with this organization that builds upon the strength of volunteers and voluntary action to help to build caring communities and respond to a broad range of human needs on a national scale.
Food Allergy Canada (formerly Anaphylaxis Canada)
Nestlé is a proud supporter of Food Allergy Canada (formerly Anaphylaxis Canada), an organization dedicated to informing, supporting, educating and advocating for the needs of individuals and families living with life-threatening allergic reactions, or anaphylaxis. The organization also conducts and supports research related to anaphylaxis.
