Charitable Contributions and Giving | New Seasons Market

Community


At New Seasons, we focus on building and nourishing the communities we serve; from the neighborhood we’re a part of to the global food community.


Giving Locally

We’ve always believed that giving back to our communities is the right thing to do. That’s why we donate 10% of our after-tax profits to local nonprofit organizations. To make sure our efforts have impact, we keep our focus on three key areas: Fighting hunger, supporting our schools, and promoting environmental conservation. Learn more>>

Community Coordinators

Each of our stores has a Community Coordinator connecting with customers and the broader community through customer service, engagement, and philanthropy. Community Coordinators respond to customer questions, attend neighborhood meetings and events, and manage a donations budget for their specific store.

Bag It Forward

When you bring a reusable bag to New Seasons, you can donate your 5 cent refund to one of three non-profits in the neighborhood! All of our non-profits focus on one of three areas—ending hunger, supporting K-12 schools or protecting our environment. Learn more>>

Lend A Hand

We also honor our staff’s commitment to doing more in their community. Each year, we give each of our staff up to 8 hours of paid time off to participate in community service, contributing to the work local nonprofits are doing.
A few examples of the work our staff has done in 2017:
• Repaired the Pacific Crest Trail
• Cooked a meal for homeless youth at HomePlate Youth Services
• Filled and delivered Backpacks for Schoolhouse Supplies
• Planted trees along the Tualatin River with Friends of Trees
• Preparing and serving lunch and ice cream with Food Lifeline
• Pulled ivy and other invasive plants in Forest Park

Cans For Kids

When you donate your refundable cans and bottles at New Seasons, 100% goes directly to your neighborhood schools foundation. Last year alone our Cans for Kids program raised over $66,659.65 from our customers, staff and community. Learn more>>

Hunger Relief

As part of our ongoing commitment to our communities, every New Seasons store partners with a local organization that fights hunger. Customers can make a donation at the register anytime they shop with us, and organizations range in scope from food pantries to soup kitchens to home garden programs for food insecure families.
