Supporting Community

We support the welfare of the communities we serve and maintain a legacy of charitable giving. We encourage our people to get involved in their communities and show their heart to serve by volunteering at local food banks, shelters, schools, places of worship and more.

Food Donations - As a foodservice distributor, we know one of the simplest ways to make an impact is to provide food for those who are hungry. In 2017, our North American DCs donated more than 5.8 million pounds of food to local food banks, providing an estimated 4.6 million meals to feed hungry people.

Community Support - Our employees have a passion for service—from building homes with Habitat for Humanity, to raising money for victims of natural disasters, to volunteering with local outreach organizations. In 2017, our employees gave their time generously, serving more than 18,000 hours with 460-plus organizations across North America.

Partnerships - We recognize and support national organizations like United Way, Habitat for Humanity, and Truckers Against Trafficking, that work on a large scale and have an extended reach.

Gordon Family - The Gordon family has chosen to help those that are not able to help themselves through organizations such as CURE International and International Justice Mission. Charitable giving is one of the most important ways we demonstrate the principle of stewardship, and ultimately it is one of the primary purposes of this family business.
