For more than a decade, Nature’s Path has been giving back to communities across North America by providing healthy, organic food for those who need it most through our annual Eat Well Do Good “foodraisers.” We’ve been hosting these annual “foodraisers” in Vancouver BC as well as Blaine WA, and Sussex, WI to include all communities where our team members live and work. Eat Well Do Good continued to evolve by going virtual in 2020 to ensure those in need received food donations during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Eat Well Do Good 2020
With families and individuals around the world deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis, food insecurity became a reality in all our communities, especially for children. That is why in 2020 we more than doubled our annual commitment, pledging to donate an equivalent of one million bowls of food to hungry children and their families in the US and Canada. In honor of our first 10 years of Eat Well Do Good, we worked with 10 organizations across North America, matching every dollar donated to any of our partners through Eat Well Do good with an additional pound of organic food.
Feeding Our Future
As a family-owned company, we believe that we’re raising the world’s next generation of leaders and change-makers. That’s why since 2019, we decided to focus our Eat Well Do Good efforts on providing kids with the essential nutrition they need to do well at school and at home. One in six children in the North America are dealing with food insecurity. This means that they aren’t getting enough food to lead a healthy life. We’re passionate about doing what we can to help. To raise awareness of this issue, we created a short video to highlight childhood food insecurity.
Nature’s Path has a long legacy of giving back to our communities. We have worked for years in partnership with amazing organizations such as Second Harvest, Feed the Children, Blessings in a Backpack, Daily Bread and many more to support families and individuals in need with healthy, organic.
How It All Started
In 2009 Arran Stephens, founder of Nature’s Path Foods, heard the Dalai Lama speak about compassion. He was inspired to put his own compassion into action in the community where he lives and works by creating an annual fundraiser to help feed those who need it most. As an avid gardener and passionate champion of organics, his natural instinct was to put his compassion toward promoting everyone’s right to clean, healthy, organic food.
