Good Foods Hits Charitable Giving Milestone
- by Peggy Packer
PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI - The future of 2021 is looking ever-so-bright, as Good Foods looks toward another year of good deeds after reflecting on a year of charitable efforts in 2020.
“Supporting our charitable mission is a cornerstone of what we do at Good Foods,” said Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Danyel O’Connor. “Not only is our charitable mission important to our company, but each of our employees holds it near to their heart as well. We’re so proud of our efforts in 2020 and look forward to continuing our service and community outreach in 2021.”
This year, the company established a new partnership with Brighter Bites, teaming up during the 2020 collegiate football season to host the “Sack Hunger” campaign, as well as the SUNSET Rocks concert during Fresh Summit, which resulted in a total donation of $35,000 to the Brighter Bites’ organization, a press release revealed.
On top of its work with Brighter Bites, Good Foods also donated to national charities that support the company’s mission to educate communities on fresh, better-for-you food, as well as organizations in their own backyard. The company made a donation of $250,000 worth of products to local food banks in Chicago and Wisconsin.
With the help of its employees, Good Foods also partnered with several nonprofits and schools, including Garden of Eatin’, a community garden in Kenosha, Wisconsin; Cristo Rey St. Martin High School Work Study Program; Kenosha County Warm Clothing Drive; Children’s Miracle Network; and The Salt & Light Coalition in Chicago, Illinois.
The company plans to continue pursuing its charitable mission in the coming year through more donations, supplying its communities with necessary resources, and furthering its partnerships with organizations like Brighter Bites.
