<p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">One of the best things about working at The Organic Box is being a part of a team that is so committed to making a difference.&#160; Regardless of the role each member plays, every staff member will happily and proudly let you know that one of the reasons they love their job is &#8220;working for a company that is committed to changing the food system&#8221;.</span></p> <p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">We truly believe that change starts with the individual and that by growing better together, we can realize the world we want to live in.</span></p> <p class="bodycopy"><span lang="EN-US">Growing Better Together is more than a catchphrase for us.&#160; It is more of a philosophy.&#160; It means investing in our youth to create a generation of citizens who are passionate about food and who understand the true costs of food production.&#160; Children who can identify their favourite vegetable, know where it comes from and help in the kitchen.</span></p> <p class="bodycopy">Growing Better Together as a philosophy also helps guide our decisions about philanthropy.&#160; When we look at partnering with organizations or sponsoring events, we always make sure that the overall goal is to grow better.</p> <p class="bodycopy">This week, we are sponsoring the Little Beans program at the 124 Grand Market.&#160; The Little Beans program allows children to make market purchases from their produce vendors using their little beans tokens, teaching them about the market transaction.&#160; Children enrolled in the program also have access to the Grand Community Garden, where they can help grow a variety of edibles.</p> <p class="bodycopy">Programs like Little Beans give children the skills and tools to gain an understanding of the food system, on a small scale, and helps build a community of engaged families.&#160; We are proud to be a part of the 124 Grand Market and to call them members of our Food Family.</p>
