Ameriprise-sponsored events will provide more than 1 million meals
to people in need

On June 15, more than 4,000 Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE:AMP)
employees, advisors and clients will work together to provide food for
families and individuals in need. The volunteers will prepare, sort and
serve meals at over 200 company-sponsored events across the country in
an effort to help the 41 million Americans, including nearly 13 million
children and five million seniors, struggling with hunger.

"People who are food insecure often have to make the difficult choice
between food, medical bills, housing and other necessities," said Brian
Pietsch, head of community relations at Ameriprise. "And families who
lose access to subsidized school lunch programs during the summer can
face even more pressure to make ends meet. This hunger gap is a reality
for far too many Americans, and that's why we're so humbled to be able
to do our part to help."

Ameriprise is a longstanding supporter of domestic hunger-relief efforts
through its nine-year partnership with Feeding America®, the
nation's largest hunger-relief organization. Each year, the company and
its volunteers provide more than 1 million meals to families and
individuals across the country through volunteer efforts with non-profit
organizations.
