Tampa, Florida (August 4, 2016) – As part of Nestlé in the U.S.’ largest single day of organized community service on August 4, 2016 in celebration of its 150th anniversary, Nestlé Professional will celebrate with volunteer events with local organizations like Feeding Tampa Bay, Habitat for Humanity Restore, Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, and Patricia J.

Across the country, #Nestlé150for150 will unite more than 6,000 employees from eight different Nestlé operating companies for a day dedicated to 150 volunteer events nationwide.
“Creating shared value in the communities where we live and work has always been at the heart of Nestlé’s journey, and there’s no better way to celebrate our 150th anniversary than by working to create healthy communities and truly exemplify our motto of ‘Good Food, Good Life,’” said Perry Miele, President, Nestlé Professional North America. “Nestlé employees work together every day to fulfill our promise of becoming a leader in nutrition, health and wellness, and today we bring that same spirit into our home town of Tampa Bay.”
As Nestlé celebrates its 150th anniversary, it continues to make strides to become the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company and to create a more sustainable future for its employees and consumers. #Nestlé150for150 will build on Nestlé’s national three-year partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and the partnership’s National Fitness Competition, which works with Clubs around the country to inspire local kids to achieve tangible and short-term fitness goals. #Nestlé150for150 also connects to Nestlé’s global initiative called “United For Healthier Kids,” which works with numerous partners worldwide – including governments, NGOs, health institutes, and sports federations – to raise nutrition and health knowledge and promote physical activity among school-age children around the world.
As the world’s largest food and beverage company, Nestlé recognizes its responsibility to improve more than just the way we eat. #Nestlé150for150 was inspired by the company’s dedication to go well beyond the product that is on store shelves.
