Company Leverages Power of Brands, Retailer Partnerships and Social
Media to Donate up to 20,000 Meals a Day to Rise Against Hunger

PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#feedtheworld2017–In support of its Vision “To Be the Best Food Company, Growing a Better
World,” The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) today announced a new
program inviting shoppers to join the fight to end global hunger by
supporting their favorite brands. Through participation at retail stores
and on social media, select brands will donate up to 20,000 meals each

“At Kraft Heinz, we pride ourselves on providing consumers with
delicious, nutritious foods, yet we know so many people around the world
still go to bed hungry every night,” said Nina Barton, Senior Vice
President of Marketing, Innovation and R&D at Kraft Heinz. “’Feed Your
Family, Feed The World’ is an opportunity for everyone to make an impact
in the fight to end global hunger by simply feeding their own families
and shopping their favorite brands.”

Kraft Heinz will automatically donate 15,000 meals each day of the
program, with an additional donation of up to 5,000 meals dependent on
social media participation.

    regional events and activities with retail partners and the iconic

Kraft Heinz beloved brand mascots – Kool-Aid Man, Mr. Peanut and the

kick off the program, canvassing for a great cause and encouraging fans
to donate a meal by snapping and sharing photos, which will then be
projected seven stories high on the NASDAQ building.

“Hunger affects nearly 800 million people around the world, and it
doesn’t have to exist,” said Rod Brooks, President and CEO of Rise

Thanks to Kraft Heinz, we can all be involved in providing life-changing
