🍁 Each day this week, we’ll be breaking out some of our favorite photo filters to bring you a unique look at the fall colors around our HQ in Minnesota! This shot shows three of our office buildings, looking southwest through the trees along the sidewalk near our employee parking lot.🍁 #generalmills#minneapolis#minnesota#fall
Before the EZ Open tubes, Go-GURT could slow kids down in their snack tracks. If you didn’t have scissors nearby, it could be a challenge to enjoy the yogurt on the go or at home. But the brand just did something about it. Find out why Go-GURT is now easier to open, on our blog (link in bio). @yoplaitusa@gogurt#gogurt#yogurt
Madison Barre, a research and development engineer at General Mills, greets a giraffe in Africa during one of her volunteering trips there for Partners in Food Solutions (PFS). Barre is one of 631 employees or retirees who have volunteered for PFS since the organization was formed in 2008. She spends a few hours of her time at work each week, and in her free time, talking via videoconferencing with small food companies in Africa. Most of the PFS work is virtual, but Barre also has visited her clients in Malawi and Kenya.
Barre says, "Most of our Partners in Food Solutions clients don’t have the world at their fingertips like we do in the U.S. and their access to resources is often limited. At General Mills, I have access to a vast pool of tools and expertise that empowers PFS volunteers like me to make a true difference. We practice a 'Learn, Do, Teach' method at work, and I try to bring that guiding principle to all of my PFS projects. By sharing what I know, I am helping our clients produce safe, nutritious food for their own communities. My hope is that they will become experts too, and help even more entrepreneurs and manufacturers provide quality food for the world." You can hear from Barre, and learn more about how PFS is making a difference in Africa, in our latest podcast (click the link in our bio). @partnersinfoodsolutions#genmillslife#hunger#foodsecurity
