Although the U.K. is one of the richest countries in the world, many people are struggling to afford food while there are estimates that up to 95% of a supermarket’s surplus food goes to waste. Inspired by this, a group of Legg Mason employees in London volunteered with The Felix Project, a charity which collects surplus food from supermarkets and wholesalers and delivers it to more than 200 charities and schools across the capital.
In June, I traveled to Guatemala for the first time. The company’s Project SPAMMY® employee engagement trips had sounded interesting to me for some time, and I had heard great things from others who had gone on such trips.

I’d like to share about my experience on the trip and what I learned along the way.
Despite living in a place of abundance, visits to food banks are increasing for the residents in Mississauga, Ontario, where General Mills’ Canadian headquarters is located.
Using the learnings from our investment in a few of our other hometown communities of Minneapolis, Minnesota and Buffalo, New York, we’re using an innovative model that aims to enable local know-how and leadership, with the partnership of United Way, to advance and sustain lasting solutions to hunger and lack of food access in Mississauga.

The daunting facts – 820 million people today remain malnourished and hungry, while one-third of all food produced for human consumption each year is wasted or lost – can leave some with the belief that our global food system is irrevocably broken; imbalanced to such a tragic degree that significant improvement couldn’t possibly be attainable.
Yet that kind of resignation, if left unchecked, poses a dangerous threat to our collective ability to make real and lasting progress.
Across Asia, Africa, India and Latin America, General Mills and our employees are making a powerful difference to ensure that our communities and the environment we depend on can flourish for generations to come.
