At each Dot Foods location, dedicated employees meet multiple times a year, volunteering their time to Dot Charitable. They do so because they care.
They care about their communities. They care about nonprofit organizations. And they care where Dot's charitable dollars go. Through this philanthropic spirit, our company has made a tremendous impact on our local communities.
All our distribution centers and corporate offices have charitable committees that lead the charge with fundraising events, volunteerism, and grant approval for their regions.
If you are a not-for-profit and your organization's mission falls within our focus areas, we encourage you to apply for a grant or reach out for more information about our charitable programs.
Our Passion Projects
Since becoming a National Team for the Alzheimer's Association in 2015, we have raised almost $1.4 million for the fight against Alzheimer's.
Neighbor to Neighbor
We donated and delivered $405,000 of food products to 76 local food pantries in 2022 through our Neighbor to Neighbor program.
Between the employee-raised funds and our 50 cents-on-the-dollar match, we have donated $5.5 million to the United Way since 2000.
