Pursuant to General Instruction E to Form S-8 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, this Registration Statement on Form S-8 is being filed by the Company for the purpose of registering the issuance of an additional 1,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock under the Amended and Restated Kellogg Company 2002 Employee Stock Purchase Plan as a result of such increase in the number of shares reserved for issuance under the plan. This Registration Statement will increase the number of shares registered under the Amended and Restated Kellogg Company 2002 Employee Stock Purchase Plan to 4,000,000 shares (which amount is inclusive of 1,500,000 additional shares to be made available as of July 1, 2020, and all shares previously authorized under the Kellogg Company 2002 Employee Stock Purchase Plan).
