COLUMBUS, OHIO (May 29, 2020) — The Toasted Oat donated its Soft Granola to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, a member of Feeding America, and the Founders Give organization to bring food to people who need it most during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The brand joined forces with other Columbus-based consumer packaged goods brands Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter Company and Spritz Tea in response to the increased number of people in central Ohio’s communities facing food insecurity.
On Wednesday, April 15, a donation of 1,260 bags of Soft Granola from The Toasted Oat, 900 cans of Spritz Tea and 870 units of Wholly Rollie’s from Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter Company were delivered to the Mid-Ohio Collective to be distributed to families in the region. The packaged were distributed to people in need based on the food bank’s curbside distribution model to ensure the safety of the volunteers and the individuals and families the food bank serves.
The Toasted Oat also donated 3,840 single serve packages of its Soft Granola to Founders Give, a charity that collects product donations and distributes them to New York City hospitals to fuel the healthcare workers on the front lines of COVID-19.
Founders Give has delivered nearly 1.7 million beverages and grab-and-go snacks for lounge rooms, recharge stations and cafeterias at 51 hospitals.
The Toasted Oat will continue its efforts to support those impacted by COVID-19 pandemic.
