Doing Good and Noble Causes
Helping others. It's what we are all about! Through Detroit Gourmet Nut Company, we have been honored to have been able to support and donate money to organizations we believe are doing the greatest good in the Detroit area focusing on the needs of the city and the people that represent it. We have a special focus on helping at-risk young women, feeling that this will do the greatest good to help guide them into a successful life.
We believe in energizing and supporting organizations that give access to real food, offer arts education and supporting the educational needs of the region. We also donate to causes that have personally affected us or loved ones. We can't think of a better way to use a portion of our sales and as we continue to grow, so does our ability to help more organizations.
