It is being reported that a foundation which has strong ties to the cereal maker, The Kellogg Company, has donated at least $930,000 to help support the Black Lives Matter organization.
Breitbart noted that the website for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation lists a $900,000 grant on June 1, 2016 to the International Development Exchange, which processes donations for Black Lives Matter. The description of the grant was listed as follows:
“Enhance local and place-specific interventions to address issues impacting the lives of Black community members, families and children by building the infrastructure and capacity of the national #BlackLivesMatter to support and strengthen their local chapters’ organizing capacity.
Exactly a year earlier, on June 1, 2015, a gift of $30,000 was given by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to help support “the inaugural Black Lives Mater Chapter Retreat.”
Breitbart reports that the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is one of the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States, and was set up in 1930 by Will Keith Kellogg, founder of the famous cereal company.
A “food fight” has broken out between The Kellogg Company and Breitbart News, since Kellogg’s pulled their advertising from Breitbart, stating that the company and their 45 million readers “are not aligned with our values as a company.”
In retaliation, Breitbart has called for a boycott of Kellogg products.
