From the moment Milton Hershey founded a school for orphaned boys in 1909, Hershey has continued our founder’s legacy of helping children succeed and reach their full potential. Today, we leverage our reach to increase access to education, nutrition and wellbeing for children around the world through multiple initiatives, including:

  • Equipping children with the social and emotional skills they need to build meaningful connections with one another and their communities
  • Using our expertise as a snacking company to provide nutritious snacks that help children learn in school
  • Supporting the mission of Milton Hershey School (MHS), through our business and through employee engagement programs.
