Giving Back

Simply Organic is committed to helping nourish the millions of food insecure in the United States and Canada through the Simply Organic Giving Fund, and supporting organic agricultural development and grower communities as part of Frontier Co-op.

 

The Simply Organic Giving Fund Grant Program

Beginning in 2019, we committed to focusing the Simply Organic Giving Fund Grant Program on addressing an issue that’s especially persistent and critical, but that is often overlooked or misunderstood: food insecurity. We’re working to help organizations across the United States and Canada to nourish the millions of food insecure in our communities by supporting organizations that provide access to healthy, organic food options.

 
 

Organic Apprenticeship Scholarship 

Scholarship recipientsSimply Organic and Frontier Co-op also jointly support a continuing scholarship in the farming apprentice program at the University of California Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems. The tuition scholarships help develop the next generation of leaders in sustainable and socially just organic agriculture. 

 

 

Simply Organic's Giving History 

Providing consumers the opportunity to use their buying power to support the environmental and social values of organic agriculture has always been part of Simply Organic. Since 2001, we've given back more than $1.5 million to supporting organic agricultural development and grower communities, including:

  • Helping growers in developing countries produce and market certified organic products.
  • Building training centers that teach organic agriculture methods and wells that bring fresh water to villages; supporting schools, meal programs and other social projects in grower communities.
  • Supporting U.S. organic research and education projects, scholarships in sustainable agriculture, and organic-growing-based social organizations such as urban gardens and community food banks.
