Fall 2015 Community Partner Vote

leave a comment »

Did you know that every time you reuse a container at in.gredients, we donate 5 cents to our non-profit community partner? We also donate 1% of our sales every First Friday (read: Block Party!) of the month.

For the past six months we’ve been happily partnered with Guide Dogs of Texas, a non-profit organization committed to providing the best guide dogs for visually impaired Texans.  After a great 6 months of supporting one another, it’s time to select our next partner!

From a large pool of wonderful applicants, the in.gredients team whittled it down to just four finalists.  Vote online or in-store (counts for more!) up to once per day until the 21st of October  We’ll announce the winner before our November First Friday Block Party! Find the mission statements and voting poll below:

Farmshare Austin envisions a future of resilient local food economies that provide farmers with livable incomes, value the resources needed to farm, and ensure organic food access. We take a whole-systems approach to community food security by educating and training future organic farmers and working with nonprofits in Central Texas to distribute produce to people in need.

allieslogo

Allies Against Slavery builds slave-free cities by mobilizing communities, supporting survivors, and catalyzing system transformation. We believe that only by bringing all sectors of society together can we reach our ultimate goal of making Austin a slave-free city – where traffickers can no longer exploit the vulnerable and where survivors can truly heal.

 urbanrootslogo

Urban Roots uses food and farming to transform the lives of young people and to inspire, engage, and nourish the community. Urban Roots provides paid internship opportunities to youth ages 14-17, to work on a 3.5 acre urban, sustainable farm in East Austin. These young people learn critical life and job skills, discover their capacity for leadership, and gain a sense of service and community.

PEASlogo

PEAS (Partners for Education, Agriculture, and Sustainability) is dedicated to connecting communities to the natural world through edible education, school and community gardening maintenance, and outdoor learning in order to inspire the preservation and conservation of our precious planet.

Thanks for voting and good luck to the Finalists!
