Newman’s Own Foundation is an independent, private foundation formed in 2005 by Paul Newman to sustain the legacy of his philanthropic work. Funded entirely through the profits and royalties of Newman’s Own products, the Foundation does not maintain an endowment, raise funds, or accept donations. The Foundation believes that each of us, through the power of philanthropy, has the potential to make a difference. Since 1982, when Paul Newman first declared, “Let’s give it all away,” more than $400 million has been donated to thousands of nonprofit organizations helping people in need around the world. The Foundation has four funding areas. Within its nutrition funding area, the Foundation supports innovative programs focused on nutrition education and access to fresh and healthy food in under-served communities.
Food System Focus Areas: Nutrition Education and Food Literacy, Public Health and Healthy Food Access
