What is GROW and How Can You Participate?

GROW by Organics Unlimited

GROW is a program developed by Organics Unlimited that helps fund programs for farm workers and their families. Now is the perfect time to get involved because GROW Month is coming this September. Every year we ask our customers to spread awareness of GROW, hoping to reach out to more consumers.

Founded in 2005 on the principle of providing better opportunities for banana-growing communities, the GROW fund has helped thousands of families in Mexico and Ecuador through unique programs and services.

A portion of the proceeds from each purchased box of GROW-branded bananas goes to the GROW Fund. This fund is administered by the International Community Foundation who handles the money in a fair, unbiased, transparent and ethical way. ICF distributes the funds to programs such as Project Amigo in Mexico and other philanthropic services in Ecuador.

Thanks to the GROW program, nonprofit organizations such as Project Amigo have benefited workers and families of banana-growing regions with educational scholarships, new student centers, dental programs, vision clinics, and more. Without this help, many of these people would never have access to these opportunities. (To learn more about different volunteer opportunities with Project Amigo please visit their website.)
