At Cisco, we focus our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) work on specific areas, one of which is critical human needs. Or, more simply, food, water, shelter, and disaster relief.
A lot of the partners we work with in this area, such as food banks and disaster response agencies, have been working round-the-clock dealing with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. We will tell you how Cisco is supporting the relief effort in a future blog post.

Today is World Food Day, a time to shine a spotlight on the global movement to end hunger.
For years, Cisco has been part of this movement. Through cash and in-kind contributions and employee volunteerism we support organizations working to end hunger — from agencies in our backyard like Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, to U.S-wide organizations like Feeding America, to the global UN World Food Programme (WFP).
