Philanthropy

Do Good. Eat Good.

That's our mission. We source from farmers who treat their lands sustainably and regeneratively, their animals humanely, and their teams ethically. When you spend your hard earned dollar with us, we endeavor to do the same and support nonprofits that address environmental issues, food accessibility, and other missions close to our hearts. To date, we have supported almost 1000 nonprofit events and fundraisers. Now, through our annual Philanthroplan, we identify and support 12 nonprofits yearly, calling them our Charitable Cheese Cause for the month. We also host Pop-Up Picnics, respond to emergency needs, and offer 10% discounts to all nonprofits.

DONATION REQUESTS?

Please note that we receive literally dozens of requests weekly. You may Submit a Donation Request here if your event is over a month away. We will answer via email as we are able around the first of every month. To go green, we do not take paper requests in the shop and we kindly ask that you not call to request. We wish you the best of luck with your event!
