Since our inception in 1996, we have focused on our social, environmental, and economic responsibilities. We believe in being good neighbours and giving back to the community where we live, work and play, and that business has an obligation to be a positive contributor to society. Although we are a small company, over the past six years, we have given back well over $133,037 in cash and $102,762 in food donations to help enrich our community.
Annually, we donate a minimum of 5% of our profits to community projects that have a positive, lasting impact on the environment and/or youth. We focus our charitable donations in these two areas because we believe they provide the fundamental building blocks for future generations. We contribute to local charities, educational programs, and advocacy initiatives that support:
- The environment through:
- Organic farmers, farmland, and farming practices
- Local food initiatives
- Environmental footprint improvements
- Nature preservation
- Community youth initiatives
Are you, or do you know of, a grassroots organization that might benefit from a donation? If so, we'd like to know. Email our coordinator, or send us a brochure. You will be contacted as soon as your submission has been reviewed. Some of the charities and organizations we are proud to be involved with:
Beyond supporting our community with money and product donations, we feel it’s also very important to invest our personal time and effort. We provide each of our employees with three paid days off per year to volunteer in the community.
If you know of a youth or environmental initiative that could use some enthusiastic volunteers, we would love to hear from you.
