Giving Thanks and Giving Back
Everyone at Sun Basket knows how lucky we are to work with such delicious food (not to mention, such lovely people), and at this time of year in particular we’re reminded not to take our good fortune for granted. We're incredibly grateful to the farmers and producers who work so hard and with so much heart to bring such wonderful food to our tables. We also know that not everyone in our communities has the same access to good food. It’s important to all of us here to share what we have with those who too often go without.
Each week Sun Basket donates any surplus produce to local food banks—Farmers Against Hunger on the East Coast, and Second Harvest Food Bank, in Santa Clara County, where our main distribution center is located in California, as well as neighboring San Mateo County.
