Supporting Communities

Communities are everything

Supporting the communities in which we operate each and every day is a privilege. In fact, finding as many ways as we can to give back, gives us even more reasons to get up every morning – from supporting community events and volunteering, to our Brilliant Brains Book Club and 3% Club. We can’t help it – we love our communities!

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

Loving our communities means showing up to participate and help wherever we can. So, every week, we make sure one of our team members can spend some of his or her regular work shift as a volunteer.

We have been proud to roll up our sleeves for organizations like Food Banks in all 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 for the United Way, Sustainable Environmental Network Society (SENS), the Kindale Developmental Association, the Live Inspired Integrated Cancer Care facility, and Food Banks BC.

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.
