Good Foods, a producer of guacamoles, dips, salads and dressings, looks back at its charitable efforts in 2020 and prepares for another philanthropic year ahead.
This year, Good Foods established a partnership with Brighter Bites, an organization that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables directly into families’ hands. The two organizations teamed up during the 2020 collegiate football season for the “Sack Hunger” campaign and the Sunset Rocks concert during Fresh Summit to donate $35,000 to the Brighter Bites’ organization.
Good Foods looks forward to more philanthropic efforts in 2021.
In addition to giving to national charities supporting the Good Foods mission, the company also looked in their own backyard to aid organizations that could use help during the pandemic. Good Foods donated around $250,000 worth of product to local Chicago and Wisconsin food banks.
“Supporting our charitable missions is a cornerstone of what we do at Good Foods,” said Danyel O’Connor, executive vice-president of sales and marketing. “Not only are our charitable missions important to our company, but our employees hold it near to their hearts as well. We’re so proud of our efforts in 2020 and look forward to continuing our service and community outreach in 2021.”
Good Foods and its employees also partnered with several other non-profits and schools throughout the year, including:
- Garden of Eatin’ community garden in Kenosha, WI
- Cristo Rey St. Martin High School Work Study Program
- Kenosha County Warm Clothing Drive
- Children’s Miracle Network
- The Salt & Light Coalition in Chicago, IL
In 2021, Good Foods plans to further its partnership with organizations like Brighter Bites, as well as continue donating products, time and resources to local and national non-profits and organizations.
