Our Food Donors
Without our food donors, we couldn’t provide nutritious meals to our community. Cultivate has several partners and each one makes huge contributions to Cultivate in their own way. If you would like to become a food donor, click the button below.
ND athletics support our programs by donating prepared but unserved food from football, basketball, and hockey games for us to use in our meals.
Most of us know Rise’n Roll as a bakery with outstanding donuts. What you may not know is they also serve top-quality deli sandwiches and other lunch fare. What they cannot sell in a day is donated to us as another resource for meals provided to our community.
This partner out of Indianapolis is America’s oldest and largest gleaning organization. They often donate their surplus produce to Cultivate so we can use fresh fruits and vegetables in our meals and provide fresh produce to local pantries.
We get a truckload of bread each week from Bimbo Bakeries that we are able to distribute to our pantry partners. Rather than throw away their extra bread, they partner with us to get staple items into the hands of those who need it most.
Stanz donates thousands of dollars’ worth of food to Cultivate every year. We get to utilize this abundance of food in our frozen meals. This foodservice distributor is a valued partner and provides high quality products that are appreciated by the students who receive our meals and pantry visitors, who get to take home these fresh products.
Rather than waste perfectly good food as inventory is turned over, Fresh Thyme donates it to us to be used in our meals. This partnership provides high-quality, healthy, nutrient-dense, ingredients we use to feed hungry people in our community.
