How UNFI Gives Back

unfi-food-donations_sideUNFI has a long-standing tradition of giving back and supporting causes that we believe are vital to the health of people and the earth. Here’s a brief overview of our involvement:

Food Donations

Through our partnership with Feeding America, we donate millions of pounds of food each year to aid in the fight to end hunger in the United States.

Community Giving

At each of our facilities a passionate group of associates operate a Helping Hands committee, dedicated to creating meaningful change in their communities. They donate over $200,000 each year to local charities from coast to coast.

Payroll Giving                         

UNFI supports associates’ desire to give back by offering the opportunity to donate to Feeding America, American Cancer Society, Farmer Veteran Coalition, United Way, Vitamin Angels, UNFI Associate Relief Fund and our UNFI Foundations directly from their paychecks.

Associate Relief Fund

This Fund was established to assist associates in times of financial hardships to ensure that they are able to meet their basic needs when unavoidable emergency situations make it difficult to do so. The Associate Relief Fund is supported by donations from associates, enabling them to help each other in times of need.

The UNFI Foundation

The UNFI Foundation awards grants to nonprofits that support healthy, organic food systems. Our grantees focus on increasing organic food production, providing research and science to develop organic farming practices, protecting the biodiversity of our seed supply, developing new organic farmers and more.
