In 2022, we donated GOODLES all over the country reaching over 500,000 people with the help of our 3,000 nonprofit partners and serving around 200,000 meals. We also focused on building and supporting our local Northern California community by giving to Walnut Avenue Family & Women's Center, the Black Surf Club, She is Beautiful,Second Harvest, Eat Learn Play and multiple other local organizations and participating in several events.

Donation to Hunger Task Force was made possible by our Mac and Threes giving campaign during playoffs where 100 boxes of GOODLES was donated for every three pointers made by Khris Middleton, Klay Thompson and Aaron Gordon.
GOODLES fans were very generous and supportive of our mission that they donated to our partner World Central Kitchen at checkout 6 times more than the average! WCK has been in the frontlines helping individuals affected by disasters and we are proud of all the ways they make the world gooder.
My favorite memories this last year happened when we came together as a team to volunteer. We cleaned beaches, created gift bags and boxes and showed up at events with our Mover and Shaker dune buggy while passing out product (and smiles).
We finished 2022 with two giveback events. The first is with Baby2Baby in Los Angeles where our team came together to pack 3,000 boxes of GOODLES as part of beautiful gifts for underserved families. We danced, sang together and enjoyed the thought of these beautiful gifts in the hands of hundreds of families. We were touched by the ways this organization contributes to young families all over the country. I will be sharing more of their story next month.
And for the second event, we donated products and volunteered at Christmas with the Currys, an annual holiday event in Oakland by Steph and Ayesha Curry’s Eat Learn and Play Foundation.
