Currently we have sold 121770 spring rolls and have raised $30,442.50 for our local food banks! To add further excitement to the campaign we decided to have a double up day!

Families helping families: Good Earth and local Food Banks remember the reason for the season

Families helping families: Good Earth and local Food Banks remember the reason for the season

Annual holiday program helps feed families through Gingerbread Families campaign

Calgary, AB (Nov. 21, 2016) – Leaving out milk and cookies for Santa this year can be even sweeter when they’re gingerbread cookies from Good Earth Coffeehouse (Good Earth). For more than 10 years, Good Earth has sold gingerbread family cookies to raise funds for charitable organizations and Canadians in need. This year, all donations raised will go to local Food Banks where Good Earth is located.

From now until December 31, Good Earth aims to sell 9,500 packages of Gingerbread Families with $1 from every cookie package sold donated to the local Food Bank. The money raised will help families in communities where Good Earth is located. All Good Earth cafés will also be accepting non-perishable food donations this holiday season.

“Simply put, in our society no one should go hungry. As a company who strives to serve exceptional coffee and wholesome food, we know how much a warm drink and hearty meal can make someone’s day,” said Nan Eskenazi, Good Earth co-founder.

Good Earth believes in making choices that have a positive impact, choices that can ‘do good.’ This value is at the heart of everything Good Earth does. From its environmental responsibility to its Fresh Food Philosophy and Direct Trade relationships with coffee farmers, Good Earth creates strong community-building initiatives with like-minded organizations.

“The Gingerbread Family program is our way of helping families alongside the St. Albert Food Bank,” said Michael Going, Good Earth co-founder and CEO. “We are happy to partner with Food Banks across Canada as they provide an essential service in each and every community we operate in.”

Each gingerbread package contains a family of three delicious cookies made fresh from wholesome ingredients found in Good Earth’s kitchens. These holiday delights are available at all 46 Good Earth locations and can also be purchased online by visiting www.goodearthcoffeehouse.com/we-cater/order-online
