Through our Shepherd’s Gift Foundation, we give 10% of our annual post-tax profits to organizations worldwide, working to create long-lasting change. Over the past year, we gave $1 million to the Global Enrichment Foundation to help famine relief efforts in Somalia through the Convoy for Hope program. Amanda Lindhout, founder of GEF and humanitarian, shares successes of our most recent Convoy in March. Thank you to Amanda & the GEF team for helping us do ‘nothing but good’ for those in need.
The Global Enrichment Foundation’s 6th Convoy for Hope ran from March 7th – 19th. Thanks to Chobani’s support and generosity, we provided emergency food aid to 25,200 men, women and children in Dobley, Somalia.
We at Chobani believe in giving back to help make the world a better place, which is why we founded the Shepherd’s Gift Foundation, and recently donated $1 million to the Global Enrichment Foundation to help famine relief efforts in Somalia through the Convoy for Hope program.
In 2011 the worst drought in over 60 years ravaged East Africa- producing crop failures, killing off livestock and sending millions from their homes in search of water and food. No country was hit harder then Somalia. In July, the United Nations declared the food crisis in Somalia a famine, stating it was “the worst humanitarian crisis in the world” with 750,000 Somali people expected to die from hunger before the end of the year.
