ETHICAL FOOD CHOICES
Inspired and informed by our Upper School Social Justice Club, we would like to encourage you to consider the following list of ethical & healthy foods if you are choosing to donate to the Thanksgiving Food Drive.
What types of foods does the Food Bank need?
The SF-Marin Food Bank has requested foods high in protein, low in sodium, sugar, and fats. No glass or perishable foods please.
soup & beans
whole grain pasta
low sugar cereal
Why buy organic?
Organic foods are produced with fewer agricultural chemicals, which can be harmful for consumers, workers, and the environment. If you can, please choose foods with the organic label.
What food companies have ethical practices toward workers and the environment?
DONATE DIRECTLY – I always encourage families to donate food through San Domenico, because it gives our students the experience of participating and reflecting on the meaning of the food drive. However, if you would prefer to give directly to the SF-Marin Food Bank, you can use this link – SF-Marin Food Bank SD Donations.
