Hershey India CSR
For more than a century, we have been guided by our founder Milton Hershey’s vision of building a successful company that is committed to the community and helping children in need.
Taking forward this legacy, Hershey India too, has spearheaded initiatives that have touched many lives across our vast nation.
While every child deserves a chance at a bright future, millions of kids around the world face a serious disadvantage - not because of their learning abilities, but because they lack proper nutrition. Milton Hershey founded our company with a promise to help children grow and thrive. After more than 120 years, we’ve continued to keep that promise by helping to provide youth - both locally and globally - with the basic nutrition they need to perform their best in school and beyond and to become great leaders of tomorrow.
Through our work supporting ‘Project Poshan’, we have partnered with United Way Mumbai to provide specially- designed nutritional food to school children in rural Maharashtra. Since 2016, we have also participated in an annual ‘Rise Against Hunger event during Good to Give Back Week, our global week of service, which involves packing meals for orphan children and families facing hunger. Our employees volunteered in packing 10,000 meals each year with Rise Against Hunger, which included rice, lentils, dehydrated vegetables & a vitamin pack in one sachet.

During the Chennai floods in 2015, we teamed up with United Way Mumbai to distribute 4 lakh packs of SOFIT to NGOs working in the flood hit areas of Chennai.
During Maharashtra Drought, 2016, we joined hands with United Way Mumbai to distribute 30,000 packs of SOFIT at Civil Hospital-Karmala Block.
