THE DO GOODER
We get it. Sometimes purchasing artisan, specialty foods feels like an indulgent splurge. While we encourage the regular support of smaller farmers and producers across the nation and globe for multiple reasons, you can rest assured that with the purchase of our "Do-Gooder" collection, your money is well spent.
You're not only supporting often-underrepresented folks who work hard to bring delicious, traditional foods to our tables, but these companies are also mission-driven. Additionally, many have community give-back programs. This set includes 4 domestically-made cheeses, conservas, chocolate, cured meat, and jelly from companies that all "Do Good" in their own ways. From operating an animal sanctuary for retired, abused, and/or disabled animals to running a nonprofit that gets challenged youth out of inner-city classrooms to learn on the farm, there are a number of ways these makers "do good" in their communities and for our food system in general.
Selections highlight Slow Food members, who make food that is "good, clean, and fair." Others are Good Food Award winners, producing food that is "tasty, authentic, and responsible." Some of the companies have achieved B Corporation certification, meeting rigorous standards to show how they balance profit and purpose. So yes, you can eat your cheese and feel good about it too. And that's all part of our own "Do Good. Eat Good." mission.
We're donating 5% of all "Do Gooder" sales to the Cheese Culture Coalition, nonprofit promoting equity and inclusion within the cheese industry. This is part of our participation in the Victory Cheese movement, a grassroots collective of cheese industry folk banding together to keep our farmers, dairymen, and women, and cheesemakers in operation.
