The Good Bowl Quarterly Charities:
July - September 2019
As part of our business model, The Good Bowl donates $1 to charity for each signature bowl sold. Our guests are given the opportunity to select from three charities that include a local, national and global nonprofit organization rooted in humanitarian and environmental efforts. These featured charities were submitted by our guests, voted on by our employees and rotate each quarter.
Local: Food Rescue
Food Rescue, a Goodwill of Northern Michigan program, collects soon-to-expire, fresh, healthy food and distributes it to 48 food pantries, shelters, and community meal sites. The nonprofit is driven by one core purpose: increase access to healthy food for hungry people and reduce food waste and in our communities.
The organization has rescued over 10 million pounds of fresh, wholesome, soon-to-expire food from the landfill and redirected it to the plates of hungry neighbors in need.
National: Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity helps families build and improve places to call home. They believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.
Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers in the community and pay an affordable mortgage. Through these efforts, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
Global: IRC (International Rescue Committee)
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.
In more than 40 countries and in 26 U.S. cities, their dedicated teams provide clean water, shelter, health care, education and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people.
