To foster our #nextbitecares culture, we have regular, ongoing employee-driven efforts. Monthly, employees direct cash grants to organizations in their communities that they are personally connected to and share their selection in a company all-hands meetings. These organizations range from health, education, environment to criminal justice.
Corporate donations – both cash and in-kind food donations – have been directed to communities needing crisis care including healthcare workers, communities impacted by natural disasters, as well as tied to ongoing educational and environmental initiatives in our communities. Past recipients include:
A non-profit organization dedicated to impacting the lives of students K-6 with Computer Science education in underserved communities throughout Los Angeles.
Big Sunday’s – Back to School Drive
Assisting with back to school backpacks for kids in underserved communities.
Encouraging policymakers to focus on solutions with the strongest evidence of effectiveness at reducing policy violence.
Healthcare’s Unsung Heroes
Through Big Sunday, SEIU-UHW (network of healthcare workers), and Door Dash for Plates of Love showing love to our frontline healthcare workers.
Hurricane Ida Outreach
Supporting our restaurant partners to get up and running with some of their operations more quickly by covering food inventory costs.
Ahmad Yusef Awareness and Prevention Project
The Ahmad Yusef Awareness and Prevention Project is a charitable service project that will contribute to raising awareness of the high health risk factors and systemic racism towards black women in the medical field, during and after pregnancy.
Let’s help people together
Whether it’s a donation, volunteer support, or delivery meals, we’d like to know how we can help our industry and community.
Please submit the below request form at a minimum of four weeks prior to the date the donation is needed. All donation requests must be within the Denver metro area and tied to the restaurant industry or involve some sort of food initiative. Examples include industry nonprofits supporting restaurant employees and/or delivery drivers, food bank donations and volunteer support, the building and maintaining of community/school gardens. Nextbite Cares will select one opportunity per quarter, but will review each request within a week of submission.
Once we receive your request, a member of the Nextbite team will contact you if we can help out! Please remember that we receive many requests for support and completing your application doesn't mean your request will be automatically awarded. Nextbite will not consider requests from organizations that discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, gender, disability, sexual orientation or political affiliation.
