Team members of Richmond-based Nature’s Path are continuing their annual Eat Well Do Good tradition of giving back by helping pack more than 1,000 organic pantry care packages this Saturday for local families and children in need.
Following safe physical distancing and sanitizing protocols, Nature’s Path team members at Delta’s Que Pasa manufacturing plant will be packing product donations for the Richmond Food Bank. According to a press release, this is to “keep the spirit of gratitude and community support alive in their mission to leave the earth better than we found it.”
Nature’s Path, North America’s largest certified organic breakfast and snack food company, has held annual Eat Well Do Good events and “foodraisers” in communities where their team members live and work since 2009. Over the past decade, Eat Well Do Good has donated more than $2 million worth of food to local food banks and elementary schools.

Happy 💚💚💚 day! Today, we want to celebrate what we love to do the most: give back. We recently held an Eat Well Do Good “foodraiser” event at one of our plants in Blaine, Washington, where we hand-packed more than 1,400 snack bags for local middle schoolers. Sadly, in this area, 1 in 5 households rely on the food bank. As an organic food company, Nature’s Path is committed to helping address this need. For the past 10 years, our Eat Well Do Good foodraisers have brought over $1.7 million worth of food to local food banks and schools. It was really meaningful and rewarding for our team members to directly see the positive impact of donating organic products they’re making every day, and the time they volunteer to help fight food insecurity in their community.

This year, Nature’s Path is pledging to do more to help families and individuals affected by the COVID-19 crisis. According to the company website, Nature’s Path will donate the equivalent of one million bowls of food to hungry children and their families in Canada and the United States. This is more than double its annual donation commitment.
In celebration of the first 10 years of Eat Well Do Good, Nature’s Path is working with 10 organizations across North America and will also match every dollar donated to any of their partners through the initiative with an additional $5 worth of organic food.
Nature’s Path’s Canadian partner food banks for 2020 include Richmond Food Bank Society, Greater Vancouver Food Bank, Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto, and Second Harvest Canada in Toronto. Click here to learn more about the food banks and to make a donation.
