Over three million meals donated and counting

After reaching its target to donate over three million meals to people in need around the world seven years early in 2023, the Electrolux Food Foundation raised its 2030 meal donation ambition during the year.

The work has included providing meals to those affected by the war in Ukraine, the COVID-19 pandemic, and natural disasters around the world. The Electrolux Food Foundation has delivered lunchboxes to frontline hospital workers, food vouchers for struggling families, and emergency food supplies to those left hungry and displaced.

Driving positive change together

“Together, we can drive positive change and achieve remarkable things. We didn’t begin with millions of meals — we began with one. Now, we’ve donated over three million meals, bringing some hope to people in critical life situations,” says Cosimo Scarano, Head of the Electrolux Food Foundation.

Delivering three million meals around the world illustrates the power of strong collaborative efforts with partners such as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies — IFRC, Stop Hunger and Feed the Planet. The foundation also partnered with local communities and organizations across 30 countries, along with Electrolux Group colleagues, who all share a unified purpose to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Continuing to support people in need

“Just because we’ve achieved our 2030 target early, it doesn’t mean our work is done,” says Scarano. “We will continue our work as the need for support is unfortunately rising around the world, due to the consequences of climate change, natural disasters and conflict.”

In 2023, the Electrolux Food Foundation doubled its 2030 target and now aims to donate six million meals to people in need by 2030.

“I firmly believe that we can all make a difference, whether it’s through volunteering, spreading awareness, educating others or donating during times of crisis,” adds Scarano. “Every small action is a step toward a more just and sustainable future.”
