Wildway has donated an entire van full of granola, roughly 1,000 pounds, to the San Antonio Food Bank to support its mission to bring better food to more people, especially in times of crisis. The company has also donated 2,000 small bags of granola to the Chobani CafeⓇ in SoHo, a temporary food pantry providing free nutritious food to anyone in New York City.
“The spread of coronavirus has caused many a deep level of stress and fear, often about life’s simple necessities, such as where the next meal is coming from,” said Wildway Co-Founder Kelli Koehler. “New York was my home for many years, and the place that sparked the dreams of opening Wildway, and San Antonio holds a special place in my heart as the city I grew up in and where we’ve been able to grow our business. It’s our goal as a company to help make clean food easily accessible to everyone around the globe while fostering positive change within our communities, and we’re proud to do that in two places that mean so much to us.”
The San Antonio Food Bank donations are part of the ‘Give Wild’ campaign the company held in April, which allowed customers to send their loved ones social distancing care packages and have their orders directly matched by Wildway.
In 2018, Wildway was one of nine companies, chosen out of 700, to take place in the Chobani Food Incubator, a program launched to mentor and support entrepreneurs disrupting and improving high-potential food categories in the U.S., kickstarting its relationship with Chobani.
