Our Partners

We are proud to join with lead nonprofit partners in a commitment to improving the health, development and success of children.


FEEDING AMERICA is the United States’ leading domestic hunger-relief charity whose mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage the United States in the fight to end hunger. Since 2009, Morgan Stanley and Feeding America have partnered to Fill the Plate for children across the United States. This effort provides more than 10 million meals and over 43 million pounds of produce to children and families in need. In addition to our charitable funding, totaling more than $13 million so far, Morgan Stanley employees play a critical role in the partnership, delivering strategic planning advice, research assistance, executive counseling and hands-on volunteer engagement nationwide.
