From the earth to the consumers it serves, Welch's harnesses the power of family-farmer owners, colleagues and partners to have a positive health and sustainable impact on the people, communities and food we touch.
Welch’s is owned by the 1,000 family farmers who grow our grapes. We’re in business to sustain a thriving market for their grapes, so all profits from our grape products are returned to the family farmers. We are able to make selective product donations through our family farmers’ generosity and commitment to our local communities. Our goal is to make a direct impact in our focus areas (health and nutrition; and food sustainability) and to benefit people who are most in need.
STEP 1 — Ensure that your organization meets these criteria:
- IS WITHIN A 50 MILE RADIUS of where our family farmers work and live, and where our plants are located (this is where you will pick up your donation):
• Westfield, NY
• Town of North East, PA
• Lawton, MI
• Grandview, WA
- IS CERTIFIED 501(C)(3) TAX EXEMPT.
- SUPPORTS ONE OF OUR FOCUS AREAS:
Health and Nutrition: Programs that promote healthy living and wellness through good nutrition or hunger relief.
– OR –
Food Sustainability: Programs that promote responsible farming and environmental stewardship, such as agricultural education or promotion.
- BENEFITS THE COMMUNITY, RATHER THAN AN INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY.
Note: Requests must be received 6 weeks before you need to pick up the donation.
STEP 2 — Give us as much information as possible about your request.
While your request may meet the criteria above, Welch’s unfortunately cannot support all requests we receive. Our priority is to sustain a thriving market for our family farmers’ grapes, so all profits from our grape products are returned to the family farmers. We are able to make selective product donations through their generosity and commitment to our local communities.
