We are committed to giving back to the communities where our customers, employees
and shareholders live and work - locally, regionally and nationally-through donations
of volunteer time by our employees, in-kind product and dollars. Our employees share
our commitment to their communities, and participate in volunteer and fundraising
activities through the Weston - Seeding Stronger Communities Campaign. For more
information, please visit Employee Giving
We have recently shifted the focus of our giving into a new area: Seeding Food Innovation.
Climate change, population growth and human activity are putting enormous strain
on the land, water and biodiversity resources in Canada and threaten our future
well-being. At George Weston Limited and Loblaw Companies Limited, we believe that
Canada can lead the way in sustainable food production that feeds our growing population
with healthy, sustaining food without destroying our environment. We want to provide
seed funding for rigorously scientific, trans-disciplinary research proposals that
investigate food and health challenges that will impact primarily Canadians, but
also deliver key learnings to solve issues of global concern.
Please refer to our Funding Guidelines for
more information about this opportunity.
Also, applications are currently being accepted by our colleagues at
Loblaw Companies Limited.
