The past few months have been difficult for just about everyone. At Riceworks, we are fortunate to have the resources to be able to help our community when tragedy strikes, and with the help of both our team and customers, we have been doing just that! Our mission has always been to make healthy, guilt-free snacking easy and accessible. Whether you’re a busy parent, a student on-the-go, or someone whose gluten-intolerance has limited their grocery store options, Riceworks fits into your lifestyle. We had many people reach out and ask us to donate product during the pandemic – here are just a few of the initiatives we’d like to share with you!

AMITA Health

Our healthcare heroes are on the front lines, working long hours and doing their best to keep us safe and healthy. We wanted to show our appreciation for all that they do by donating over 700 bags of Riceworks snacks to the staff at AMITA Health in Illinois. Here was their kind response:

“Thank you for your generosity and compassion. We may be apart, but we are not alone. Today we received all 768 bags of snacks – enough for everyone!

Your gift and support was really meaningful. This legacy of compassion did not start with us, but it continues today because of people like you. Thank you for your compassion, concern and desire to help during this unprecedented time. We are so grateful.

Please share with your team our appreciation and gratitude!”

Project Angel Food

Project Angel Food is a non profit organization that prepares and delivers healthy meals to feed people impacted by serious illness, bringing comfort and hope every day. Their mission aligns perfectly with ours at Riceworks, which is why we donated a great deal of Riceworks to Project Angel Food earlier this month.

Rockford Fire Department

Medical professionals are not the only health heroes on the frontlines. We are so grateful for our firefighters that keep their communities safe and secure. That’s why we sent our friends at the City of Rockford Firefighters Local 413 an assortment of Riceworks snacks – and as you can see, their favorite was Salsa Fresca! Here was their note of thanks:

“Thank you to Riceworks for their recent donation to all our stations! We appreciate you thinking of us during these times!”

Your continued support is so important to us and we hope to continue this for many years to come. Tell us below how you’ve been able to help your community recently – we love to hear from you!
