We humbly support the mission of Cultivate. The impact that they make on fighting hunger in our community is awesome and amazing. They are changing lives!

Joel & Kendra Laidig (Donors)

I first learned of Cultivate several years ago from a friend at Church.  I was asked to a Cultivate dinner and I was amazed at the operation and the dedication of the staff.  The staff uses their gifts and talents to make our community better. The efficiency of their team would make any manufacturer smile.  The idea of feeding families and children with food which would normally go to waste is something special.  We have issues with unity in our nation, but there is nothing more unifying than the effort put forth by Cultivate. Cultivate simply helps people. I am so thankful for the opportunity to support Cultivate both Corporately and personally.
