The FreshCo and Chalo! FreshCo team has a long history of giving back and now our local communities need us more than ever. That's why we created the Community Action Fund. In the early days of the pandemic, our passionate network of stores and teammates connected with their local communities to create localized solutions that helped address their most urgent needs. We trust that our store teams know their communities best; that’s how the Community Action Fund was able to direct food and funds to make an immediate, meaningful difference.
Today, our support of the local community is focused on building healthier tomorrows for more neighbors, by supporting the mental and physical health of children and families. Funding is centered on:
- Healthy Bodies - removing barriers for more Canadians to access healthy and affordable food.
- Healthy Minds - early interventions of child & youth mental health.
A healthy body and healthy mind go hand-in-hand, and the community groups we partner with support one or both of these areas of health and wellness.
Woven throughout our company is our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Through the Community Action Fund, we partner with marginalized groups to help provide the right ingredients to amplify our commitment to build a sense of inclusive belonging for all of our neighbors.
