Community giving

We put communities at the heart of our giving strategy focusing on communities where our employees live and work.

We believe in the power of food and beverages to enhance the quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come.

The support we gave in 2022:

CHF 121 million
100 projects
100,000 +

Our focus areas

We act by responding to the needs of communities in crisis, helping to tackle food insecurity and by enhancing the quality of life in our communities.

  • Disaster relief
    We help our communities when disasters strike, and accompany them in the recovery phase, through dedicated front-line support and assistance via global or local partners.

  • Food access
    We tackle food insecurity by helping people in need have access to healthier foods and work to make them part of the community through shared meals and services.

How to make a support request

Nestlé has many valued, longstanding, international and local partnerships that we prioritise to ensure maximum impact. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to support additional programmes that align with our global framework.

Requests for support of a project that operates within one country (including Switzerland) should be directed to the local Nestlé entity. Please consult our global contact directory.

Requests for support of programs of global nature may be submitted to [email protected].

If you are seeking support for a project in our HQ community of Canton de Vaud which brings positive value to community life, you can learn more about our grant application criteria and process.

We work with partners to ensure the most effective support for our communities

We strive to be the neighbor of choice for our communities through purposeful giving, engaging with a number of partners at an international and local level.
