Good Earth 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 Familycookies 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

initiative and a wonderful way for our team to give back.” Good Earth Coffeehouse attracts
