“Being ‘One Hershey’ is about winning together and bringing our whole selves to work each and every day.

If you have a desire to give back to your community or communities around the world, you’ll feel right at home here. We believe that success is better when it’s shared.


Giving back is not just a speech we recite at company meetings. We live it every day. Our long history of helping our communities stems from our founder, Milton Hershey. His success as a businessman enabled him to make a lasting contribution to society by helping those less fortunate. For nearly a century, the Hershey Trust Company has carried out this mission, administering the Milton Hershey School and serving the community of Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Today, our heritage of helping to prepare children for success in life is carried out through Nourishing Minds, our global commitment to providing basic nutrition for kids in need to help them learn and grow. This work is fueled by the creativity, skills and passion of Hershey employees around the world. We know we can make a meaningful difference by using our unique expertise in food production to help children in need focus on their studies rather than their stomachs.
