RICHMOND, BC – July 2 2024 – Nature’s Path Organic Foods (Nature’s Path), North America’s leading organic breakfast and snack food company, is thrilled to announce the winners of its annual Gardens for Good: Plant it Forward campaign. The grant recipients – 10 organic community gardens in the United States and 5 from Canada – were selected for the meaningful role they play in making fresh and healthy organic food more accessible in their communities. 

 

“This year, we had so many amazing applicants, making it extremely hard to choose our finalists.” says Jyoti Stephens, Nature's Path VP Mission and Strategy. “The winners we selected all exemplify the true spirit of Gardens for Good: Plant it Forward. Not only is every garden honoring the land by growing much-needed organic food for those in need in their communities, to echo the words of one of our winners, they are also creating a more beautiful, loving world.”

 

Nature's Path Organic Foods is donating $7,500 each to the 15 deserving gardens, totaling more than $112,000. Since 2010, Nature’s Path’s Gardens for Good: Plant it Forward program has donated more than $930,000, supporting 120 organic community gardens in both the U.S. and Canada, and positioning Nature’s path to exceed its commitment of donating more than $1 million to organic community gardens by 2028.
