Since 2009 we’ve been hosting annual “foodraisers” in Vancouver BC (and have since added Blaine WA, and Sussex WI) to include all the communities where our team members live and work. For our Eat Well Do Good events, we invite the local community to put their compassion into action with their generous donations of food and funds for those in need.
Eat Well Do Good 2019
This year our Eat Well, Do Good event was focused on tackling childhood hunger. One in six children in the United States are dealing with food insecurity, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This means that they aren’t getting enough food to lead a healthy life. As an organic food company, 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.
Over $1.5 Million Raised
So far our Eat Well Do Good foodraisers have raised over $1.5 million worth of food to our local food banks and elementary schools. You can also help us end childhood hunger by donating today! We’ll match every $1 you donate with $5 worth of organic food.
Every year our Eat Well Do Good events are supported by amazing partners like Organic Meadow and Save-On-Foods who donate food and team members’ time to make the foodraiser a success.
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 organic pioneer, his natural instinct was to put his compassion toward promoting everyone’s right to clean food.
