“Conagra employees are dedicated, engaged and generously give their time and talents to volunteer year-round at organizations that are special to them and their local community needs,” says Lindsey Williams, senior director, human resources.
For 2023, its Canadian employees volunteered more than 250 hours with non-profits in the Greater Toronto Area and Dresden, as well as with organizations in British Columbia, for its annual month of service. The company also held Unite for Change, which encourages employees to donate to organizations, like United Way and Human Rights Watch.
Employee engagement is strong. Conagra’s month of service, recently extended over two months to include both April and May, is an annual effort designed to give employees an opportunity to give back to their local communities. It’s a chance for all Canadian facilities to make a difference in their own backyards.
This year, Conagra partnered with several charitable organizations, including Seva Food Bank, Women’s Habitat (Etobicoke), Mississauga Food Bank, Richmond Food Bank Society, Quest Food Exchange, Dresden Sidestreets Youth Centre and Hockey Helps the Homeless. The company has made product donations and distributed grants to the organizations mentioned above, totalling more than $85,000.
