We are always looking for ways to help pay it forward. Which is why Crazy Richard’s employees are encouraged to donate company time serving in charities of their own choice, in addition to participating in quarterly activities sponsored by Crazy Richard’s. We rotate the charities which we support as a team on a quarterly basis to help spread the love to as many as we can.
Recently we were able to join in person on a donation drop off to Inprem Holistic Community Resource Center in Columbus, Ohio. This photos features Nanette and Kimmi from Crazy Richard’s and one of the regular volunteers at Inprem named Bernice. Bernice is an amazing human being who has volunteered at the food bank at Inprem every single single for the past seven years! The entire community resource center is run solely by volunteers and through local community donations. Inprem says they help supply food and other necessities to primarily refugees and people experiencing homelessness and often repurpose previously thrown out food consider to be the “third level of food waste.”
We were inspired by Bernice and the rest of the wonderful people there and were thrilled to see our delicious products placed into the hands of this deserving organization.

We were also honored to be the lunch sponsor at our local community’s 22nd Annual Community Service Day in celebration for the “National Day of Service.” This family friendly event has been something we have enjoyed participating in as a company and this event has grown to more than 450 volunteers helping at 70 sites around our local community. We loved making these PB & J sandwiches in advance this year as a Crazy Richard’s team in our office kitchen the day before the event.
Here’s our secret hack to the best make-ahead PB & J sandwiches: mix 2 parts Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter to 1 part Jelly in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment until all blended. Then put a scoop in the center of one slice of bread and top with another slice before adding to your sealed pouch and store in the fridge until ready to serve. This prevents the jelly from soaking the bread too much or from dripping out the sides. Of course we finished it off with a custom Thank You Volunteers sticker!
Crazy Richard’s partnered with Feeding America® and Walmart’s Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign to bring food to people who need it most.
We are proud that Crazy Richard’s was the first small company to join in this annual event in 2020 when we were able to help Feeding America get food to people facing hunger in communities nationwide. For each purchase, we provided a meal* to someone facing hunger. We hope to be able to participate in this event or other similar national events in the future in addition to our on-going local efforts.
