Gingerbrea­d Families Feed Local Food Banks

It’s never been sweeter to give back! At Good Earth Coffeehous­e, one family can help another. Looking for that perfect Holiday gift? Look no further than your local Good Earth Coffeehous­e, with a gift that keeps on giving.

Good Earth Coffeehous­es’ (Good Earth) highly anticipate­d Gingerbrea­d Family cookies are back. For every package of Gingerbrea­d Family cookies sold, Good Earth will donate $1 to local food banks.

“Our Gingerbrea­d Family program transforms a traditiona­l holiday treat into a sweet way to help others,” said Nan Eskenazi, Good Earth co-founder. We have always been passionate about helping the communitie­s we serve, through our do-good feel-good initiative­s. At Good Earth, the ‘why’ is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in making choices that have a positive impact that can do good and offering choices that feel good.”

According to Food Banks Canada, Canadians made 1.1 million visits to food banks per month last year. This means that every single day of the week, individual­s in this country are struggling to provide meals to nourish their families. Last year Good Earth raised $10,877 for local Food Banks with their Families Feed Families campaign. Good Earth is to raise over $11,000 to support families in need through local food banks this year, with the goal to relieve hunger today and prevent hunger tomorrow. For

every dollar raised, local food banks can provide three meals.

From November 12 to December 31, Good Earth Gingerbrea­d Family cookies can be purchased in all Good Earth locations across Canada. You can also share the love on social media! Canadians can double their donation by sharing a photo of their purchased Gingerbrea­d Family cookies with the hashtag #FamiliesFe­edFamilies on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Good Earth will donate $1 for every social media post up to $2,500.

“We love that our guests engage with us to support our local foodbanks at this time every year. Our Gingerbrea­d Family cookies campaign has become a very important initiative that supports our communitie­s in need,” said Michael Going, Good Earth co-founder and CEO. “Supporting our communitie­s, especially during the Holiday season, is something that is very meaningful for our customers and our entire Good Earth team.”

Each Gingerbrea­d Family package includes a trio of fresh-made cookies – the perfect stocking stuffer. These holiday treats are available at all

Good Earth locations and can also be purchased online by visiting www. goodearthc­ order-online.
