Corn Donations

At Snyder’s Sweet Corn, we are humbled to be able to feed our community.
We consider it a privilege to do so and in turn desire to give back from the blessings we’ve received.
Being good stewards of all of our resources is something we truly hope to instill in future generations of our family and yours.

 

Any donation requests must be received via email prior to May 31 each year.
Only those requests that fall within our FEED & PROTECT mandate will be considered.

SHARING THE BOUNTY

Since 2012, we have partnered with the Hamilton Food Share to distribute fresh corn throughout the region. At the end of each selling day, we bag up the remainder of the corn from that day to be picked up by the Food Share 2 times a week. To date, it has been our privilege to have shared over 13500 Snyder Dozen with those with limited access to fresh corn!!
We also distribute corn coupons to our 4 local food banks to be distributed at the beginning of each season to their clients. This gives opportunity for all of our valued customers to purchase corn from our stands when they would like to serve it to their families!

GIVING FORWARD

Over the years we have struggled with how to fairly distribute any extra monies received from our customers. As we are not technically in the service industry it can be very challenging to define who the TIPS get distributed to as there are many people working hard both behind the scenes and at the stand. At Snyder’s Sweet Corn, we understand how valuable each and every member of our team is in providing an exceptional product and experience and we recognize their hard work and compensate fairly for this effort. We also are fully devoted to supporting those less fortunate in our greater communities and want to be a company who encourages that in the youth that work alongside us each day. We have tracked the TIPS through the seasons and have discovered that when these amounts are distributed equally to those working each day they don’t amount to very much, but if we collectively allow them to accumulate, their sum can truly make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Therefore, any money given at the stand in excess of the sales will be considered a donation and set aside to be donated to the 541 Eatery & Exchange on Barton Street in Hamilton. Our family farm will commit to matching this amount and at the end of the season the donation will be made on behalf of our Corny Crew!

We are thrilled to share that all of our giving in 2019 allowed us to share 1209 buttons with those in need that will be exchanged for warm meals in the coming weeks!

Please check out the work 541 Eatery & Exchange does at www.fivefortyone.ca or visit them for an awesome meal and experience the difference one button can make!
