Our employees are encouraged to volunteer in activities that positively impact the quality of life within surrounding communities where we live and operate. Whether it’s Habitat for Humanity, Meals-On-Wheels, or Local Food Banks, our team members enjoy reaching out to their communities to participate and help out with local activities.
Additionally, as a company, UNFI makes donations and contributions to valuable industry leaders as well as support local and regional growers as they look to expand their organic farms. For us, being a leader is about more than just being good at selling and promoting organic foods. It means that we give back, in both time and money, to our local communities, as well as to our larger communities involved with organic and environmental research, outreach, and activities.
UNFI Canada partners with Urban Impact to divert waste and reduce our environmental footprint by recycling at work. In 2013, our Grocery West division helped save 238 trees, 370,953L of water and 57,397kwh of electricity!
