Supporting Communities

Communities are everything

We are honored to get the opportunity to work within the communities we have the privilege to operate each and every day. Being able to support and give back in as many ways as we possibly can is something that gets us up in the morning. We’ve created a variety of ways for the community to get involved and help us give back.

From supporting community events and volunteering to our Brilliant Brains Book Club to encourage reading and 3% Club that helps us support local community groups, non-profits, and clubs, we can’t help it, we love our community!

Supporting our team to think local

Our love for our communities is just another great reason for us to attend as many local events as we possibly can and see our friends and family. Each and every week, we make sure one of our team members can spend some of their regular work shift volunteering.

Together they have volunteered at countless organizations like Food Banks in all of our communities, the North Okanagan Gleaner’s Society, the Kamloops SPCA, the South Okanagan Women in Need Society, Inspire Health and The Westside Health Network. And as a company we have been happy to partner and raise money and support the, the United Way, Sustainable Environmental Network Society (SENS), the Kindale Developmental Association, the Live Inspired Integrated Cancer Care facility, and Food Banks BC.

3% Club

Helping local groups give back to the community
We created our 3% Club which is all about giving. It’s our way for community organizations, local groups, clubs, and businesses to profit from shopping with us and help us give back. We are so pleased with the amount of organizations participating and would love to invite more organizations to join us.

For-Profit Groups
Donate your 3% Club earnings to a charity or cause is an easy way to give back to your community and a great way to engage your team in choosing where the funds go. Just let us know which charity or cause you’ve selected and we’ll donate them and send you the confirmation letter.

Brilliant Brains Book Club

Our Brilliant Brains Book Club operated in our communities for nearly 1600 students, students are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Students who meet their reading goal each month receive a free treat (up to $5 value) from Nature’s Fare Markets.

The program starts in September and runs until June at local schools or home schools. Every student in grades K–7 is eligible to participate. At the beginning of each month, the teacher will give students a Monthly Reading Record bookmark to record their home reading on. Each student reads at their own level and marks a star on the bookmark each day they read. Parents or guardians are encouraged to supervise the students progress and signs the bookmark at the end of the month once it is completed. The student can bring the signed bookmark into any Nature’s Fare Markets location and receive a free treat (up to $5 value). Students can also fill out the ballot on the bottom of the bookmark and hand it into the cashier to enter the draw to win the grand prize.
