More than 37 million people face hunger in the U.S. today. And did you know yogurt is one of the most-requested but least-donated items to food pantries? Now more than ever, our communities need or help to ensure they have the nutrition food they need.
That’s where we can work together. Yoplait® is partnering with Feeding America® to donate up to $600,000 to local food banks around the country. This includes the yogurt sold in your operation! Promoting this in your operation can drive donations to an urgent cause, drive your cup yogurt revenue, and serve your customers the yogurt they know and love. See below for how to get involved, as well as additional resources like social media posts to drive awareness and excitement, and category management guidance on the best yogurts to serve in your operation.
