Sowing Sustainability, West’s China Site Partners with Green Food Bank Fighting Hunger in a Sustainable Way

Giving has been a cornerstone of West's culture, and our team continues to seek new ways to make a greater impact for the long term. West’s China site partnered with Green Food Bank to be the first company sponsoring a farm to grow sustainable food from seed to feed those in need, giving back to the communities in a sustainable way.

Through this partnership, West helps to support the reduction of food waste by providing a platform to encourage more people to take actions for sustainable development in local communities.

Our team led by example. 16 West team members volunteered to participate in this sustainability movement. After a brief orientation that gave insights into the food journey and its situation in Shanghai, the team had a better understanding of the value and necessity of food, further fueling the team's passion to plant with their own hands.

Three different kinds of seed were sowed on our sponsored land. They will mature in 1,3, and 6 months, respectively, and the fruits of their labor will be given to families in need.

We look forward to these seeds thriving with love and delivering help to many people. Building on the momentum, we continue to help, to give, and to care as we always bear this in mind: a healthier world, a better future.

Supported by the company, our team members across the globe organize and donate time for service days, fundraising events and other volunteering opportunities for charitable organizations. To learn more about our culture of giving, click here.
