As members, we commit to giving a minimum of 1% of our annual revenue to vetted nonprofit organizations. We’re honored to be included in this incredible group of companies who believe in doing well by doing good, and to support the work of nonprofits across the country working to build a more sustainable, accessible, inclusive food system.

We're HONORED to support the work of the following organizations:
Community Servings provides more than 650,000 medically-tailored meals a year to Boston-area individuals and families who are unable to shop or cook due to a critical or chronic illness. They believe in the healing power of food (and their CEO was a guest on At The Table Podcast Episode 8!)
FOOD LITERACY CENTER
Food Literacy Center teaches low-income elementary children in and around Sacramento to cook through after-school programs that focus on culinary skills, nutrition, and food’s impact on the environment and economy. Currently, they serve 1,200 students a week. You might recognize their Founder and Chief Food Genius, Amber Stott, as a former At The Table Podcast guest!
NO KID HUNGRY
Summer is an especially hungry time of year for children who rely on subsidized school meals during the academic year. No Kid Hungry helps connect hungry kids with summer meals in addition to their year-round work to provide school breakfasts, advocate for healthy, accessible foods, and teach families to shop for and cook healthy meals through their Cooking Matters program.
Feeding America is the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States. Their programs include a food rescue initiative – saving perfectly good food from ending up in a landfill and directing it instead to families in need – and support for a national food bank network.
