cheese cares

We work hard for our success –directly supporting our bottom line, the livelihoods of our employees and the economic health of our local
community. Additionally, our success enables our ongoing ability to promote charitable efforts that benefit our staff, our neighbors and our beliefs.
Cheese Cares is the embodiment of this commitment – how we leverage our platform through promotional fundraising, in kind donations, matching programs, event sponsorships, and annual giving to support organizations that share our values and represent causes we believe are important and worthy. Not everyone agrees with how we’ve integrated our social mission with our business strategy, and that’s ok. If our efforts bring awareness, education and/or financial benefit to any of the causes we endorse, than we’ve done good – and we’re more than ok with that.

our kids' futures depend on it

Ten years ago we joined the fight to end gun violence in the US by supporting Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety and are now using our platform to ask you to join us. What does this have to do with cheese you might ask? --We are a family-owned business of mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, aunts, uncles, and grandparents and we are tired of seeing gun violence in communities just like ours --in schools, churches, grocery stores… If our plea gets even one of you to donate, then we’ve done the right thing. Enough is enough.

women's reproductive care is healthcare

To us, the concept is simple - women's access to reproductive healthcare is a human right. As a brand built by women, with a workforce of 60% women, we stand firmly in support of Planned Parenthood and the necessary services they provide. Women should have access to this care regardless of the city they live in, financial status, or personal circumstance.

everyone deserves access to nourishing, fresh food

As a food producer we certainly know the positive difference a fresh, healthy meal can make and are proud to support the California Association of Food Banks. Since 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic, we have committed to annual donations as well as sponsoring volunteer opportunities for employees to join us in support of the association's mission to end food insecurity in our own community.
