At Goodles we are all about celebrating surprising acts of goodness, especially the little things that make big impact. We call them “gooders”. And while there are so many ways we can think of to Make, Be, and Do Gooder, we can’t think of anything more Gooder than finding ways to give back to people that are in true need.
For so many, food has the privilege of being a pleasure, not just a vehicle to fuel our days. We share meals with friends, we celebrate life’s occasions with forks and knives, we pick at leftovers in front of an open fridge for a midnight snack. In fact, the average family of four actually throws out about one-third of the food it buys. However, some people live with constant food insecurity. Others find themselves unexpectedly not knowing where their next meal may come from.
At Goodles, we are committed to giving back at least 1% of all of the product that we sell to organizations that nourish people and communities in need. We are thrilled to collaborate with our friends at World Central Kitchen to help further their wonderful cause!

Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen (WCK) uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond. WCK has created a new model for disaster response through its work helping devastated communities recover and establish resilient food systems. WCK has served more than 50 million fresh meals to people impacted by natural disasters and other crises around the world in countries including The Bahamas, Indonesia, Lebanon, Mozambique, Venezuela, and the United States. WCK’s Resilience Programs in the Caribbean and Central America have trained hundreds of chefs and school cooks, advanced clean cooking practices, and awarded grants to farms, fisheries and small food businesses while also providing training and networking opportunities.

Remember when we said that little things together can make a big impact? Well, we want to ask *you* to take action. GOODLES is launching an ongoing giveback campaign, inviting our customers to spread the mac-and-cheese love by adding direct donations to WCK while purchasing GOODLES. So consider this our first “Do Gooder Challenge” - where we encourage you to join us on our Do Gooder journey. Let’s give back, together, and help World Central Kitchen on its journey to nourish communities in their time of need.
