Updates from the Vegware Community Fund.

Someone Cares Soup Kitchen

For the Thanksgiving Holiday, members of the Vegware team helped the community by volunteering at a local soup kitchen as part of the Community Fund program. We were delighted to work alongside other volunteers as well as the hardworking team at Someone Cares. 

A Caring Kitchen

Someone Cares Soup Kitchen, located in Costa Mesa, CA, was established in 1997 by Merle Hatleberg, grandmother of the current Director. Hatleberg believed in treating everyone with kindness and respect, and in giving back to others whenever possible. The kitchen has served more than 300 meals per day for over 20 years to those who are in need. 

The kitchen’s mission is to serve good meals seven days a week to make sure no one goes to bed hungry. They also offer an after-school tutoring program for students within the area.

Vegware Community Fund

Since we opened our Huntington Beach office in June this year, we’ve been humbled by the warm welcome we’ve received from the local people and businesses. So much so that we’re delighted to announce the launch of our Vegware Community Fund in the US.

In 2009, we started the Vegware Community Fund to support sustainability in its widest sense.  Over the past few years we’ve helped out a number of charities and organizations with funding and donations across the UK and now we’re excited to be doing the same in the US. Our community fund extends support to both the built and natural environment, and community projects, by offering monthly grants or regular donations of our eco packaging.

Have a read of our Community Fund blog to see what kind of projects and organizations we’ve supported in the past. For more information and details on how you can apply, head to our website.
