Our hometown of Battle Creek is a small city of approximately 125,000 metropolitan population. The Foundation's contributions to the growth and development of the area are evident in a number of specific, substantial ways. These include support for educational programs and facilities of Kellogg Community College, a newly developed residency program in family medicine, the community auditorium, a special school for handicapped children, and a host of programs that place emphasis on human services in health and education. Recently, the Kellogg Foundation celebrated the start of its 50th Anniversary and announced special grants totaling over $1 5 million in the community. A new downtown civic center/arena will be built with Foundation funds, along with a new science/health technology building for the area's only institution of higher education.
