The Full Futures program was launched in 2021 by Campbell Soup Company alongside public, private and nonprofit partners with the goal of fostering a school nutrition environment that ensures all students are well nourished and ready to thrive at school and life.
The strategy is based on 4 pillars:
School Nutrition Mindset: creating a culture that prioritizes nutritious food for students by updating the district's policy, expanding access to meals beyond lunch and including nutrition concepts into the core curriculum.
Food Service Infrastructure: enhancing school food service infrastructure through new equipment, resources and training.
Nutrition Education: Expanding the impact of nutrition by providing lessons on how to grow their own food and teaching culinary classes to families and caregivers.
Procurement and Menu Change: procuring locally-sourced, nutritious ingredients and supporting menu changes centered around students preferences.
During the first year, 7,553 students were impacted by the initiative in the Camden City School District. $93k were reinvested into the local economy, supporting local farmers.
The way companies engage their employees and create impact is more important now than ever before. We face global and societal challenges, and companies have the power to make a difference.
Creating impact and engagement at this scale is incredibly challenging. That's why we felt it was essential to launch the WeHero 100 to highlight the top 100 companies making an impact.
WeHero announces a new company to the WeHero 100 monthly, with the goal of raising awareness and motivating more companies to focus on impact.
