Hundreds of families will be benefiting from the generosity of a Delta-based business.

Last Friday (Nov. 25) Nature’s Path held its Eat Well Do Good event at its Que Pasa plant in Tilbury.

Workers packed 1,500 bags that were donated to the Richmond Food. Bank that has seen its demand increased by more than 20 percent from the previous year, especially for seniors in the community.

The bags included five of Nature's Path’s products including Caramel Pecan Grain Free Granola, Golden Turmeric Cereal, Hot Oatmeal, Love Crunch Espresso Vanilla Cream Granola.

It was back in 2009 when Nature’s Path Founder Arran Stephens was inspired to created the Eat Well Do Good “food raiser after hearing the Dalai Lama speak about compassion.

In the 13 years since, they haven take place at Nature’s Path Foods’ Metro Vancouver facilities, along as south of the border in Blaine, WA and Sussex, WI — donating more than $2 million in healthy organic food over that time to communities across North America.
