We're proud to support hundreds of grassroots organizations from coast to coast who champion one or more of these causes:
Supporting organic family farmers
Efforts that increase professional development opportunities in organic
agriculture for family farmers; empower youth in agriculture; preserve family farm culture; and protect farmers’ livelihood.
Growing organic food systems
Efforts dedicated to the advancement of organic agriculture and food
sovereignty in both rural and urban areas, including initiatives focused on organic research, education and advocacy.
Promoting environmental sustainability
Efforts that promote and advocate for the stewardship and protection of natural resources.
Fostering organic health and wellness
Efforts that promote healthy living by educating about the benefits of organic and increasing access to organic food. Priority is given to initiatives that benefit children’s health and education.
Doing good in our local communities
Efforts that empower our farmers’ and employees’ communities to strengthen their local economies, create and enrich local, organic food systems, and/or increase community well-being.
Our support comes in all shapes and sizes and can include both financial and food donations. To request cash or product for a non-profit organization or event, fill out our Donation Request Form, and be sure to give us at least 8 weeks advance notice.
We also offer grants from $500-$50,000 through a fund made up of voluntary contributions from our farmers to support projects focused on organic research, education and advocacy.
