6 nonprofits from New Jersey awarded part of Campbell’s $880K in community impact grants

Camden-based Campbell Soup Co. and the Campbell’s Foundation on Wednesday announced $880,000 in Community Impact Grants to 44 nonprofit organizations positively impacting communities where Campbell operates.

The grants provide support to organizations that nurture Campbell neighborhoods, increase food access and encourage healthy living. These latest grants bring Campbell’s fiscal 2024 grantmaking total to more than $2.4 million. This year’s grantees include organizations in 30 Campbell communities from 16 states, Puerto Rico and Canada.

The six nonprofits from New Jersey that were recipients of $20,000 each to support programming and operations in Campbell’s own Camden community are:

  • Cathedral Kitchen;
  • The Food Trust;
  • Greater Philadelphia YMCA;
  • LUCY Outreach;
  • The Neighborhood Center;
  • Vetri Community Partnership.

“The Campbell’s Foundation Community Impact Grants program empowers our employees to give back and support organizations making a meaningful impact in the communities we call home,” Kate Barrett, president of the Campbell’s Foundation, said.

The annual grant process starts with Campbell employees nominating local organizations to apply for grants, choosing from hundreds of organizations that submit statements of interest. The foundation’s employee-led, all-volunteer Executive Committee then reviews applications and submits them for final approval by the foundation’s board of trustees.
