Every Territory meal helps give folks in need a hand up through our Giveback program. We send a portion of proceeds, donated meals, and volunteer time from our crew (each of us gets paid time off to contribute more of our own) to support the work of non-profits— both local in communities we serve, and nationally like:
- Arcadia’s Mobile Market: a farmer’s market on wheels that distributes fresh food to low income, low food access communities in the Capital region.
- Project Angel Food: which feeds and nourishes the sick as they battle critical illness. Volunteers and staff cook and deliver nutritious meals, free of charge, to homes throughout Los Angeles County to alleviate hunger, prevent malnutrition and return people to health.
- National Farm to School Network: which connects local food sources and agriculture education with school systems and early education environments through advocacy programs and a network of local partners nationwide.
So beyond the great decision you’re making for your own well being, you’re also helping lift others in your community and beyond.
Why are we giving back?
We set off on this crazy journey of building Territory first because we wanted to help people experience the awesome life changes that can come from better eating and moving.
We also did it to see if we could build a great organization from raw materials that are really important to us and reflect our values – like transparency, obsessive customer service, giving back and community. Jumping on board with a giveback model inspired by great organizations like Salesfore.com is our start down the path of making philanthropy a core part of how we think and what we do everyday.
