DENVER (October 1, 2020) – Pet Releaf, the market-leading CBD hemp health brand for pets donated over $20,000 of food totaling over 5,500 lbs to Metro Caring, Colorado’s frontline anti-hunger organization.
Pet Releaf’s donation of shelf-stable products including dried diced apples, dried cranberries, gluten-free rolled oats, and other products will be available at the Fresh Food Market and provided to thousands of families by Metro Caring. “During a pandemic, not knowing where your next meal may come from is unimaginable, and many people may not always receive the nourishment they need. Being able to provide products that will help the community we are part of is something we are very proud of,” said Chelsea Gennings, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Pet Releaf.
As Colorado’s frontline anti-hunger organization, Metro Caring works with our community to meet people’s immediate need for nutritious food while building a movement to address the root causes of hunger. Metro Caring offers innovative programming in Healthy Foods Access, Nutrition Education and Cooking Classes, ID Procurement, Urban Gardening, and Community Activation. “We want to thank Pet Releaf for their kind donation and look forward to working with them more in the future,” says Rick Pollock, Food Access Coordinator.
This donation is one of many ways Pet Releaf is giving back to the communities they serve. In addition to this partnership with Metro Caring, Pet Releaf recently launched their Rescue Releaf initiative to help rescue animals all across the United States. With this initiative, they want to give their audience the chance to nominate their favorite rescue organizations so they can reach out and offer their CBD-infused Edibites to rescue dogs in need during COVID-19. They hope that their Edibites will help rescue animals have a calmer transition into their foster homes, shelter, or permanent homes. So far, Pet Releaf has donated over 7,000+ bags of Edibites and 2,200+ Boom Bars, the equivalent to $157,500 to over 110 rescue organizations!
“We are honored to work with Metro Caring and commend their quick efforts in providing families with essential food. We are always looking for ways to give back to our surrounding communities,” says Justin Thomson, Executive Chef and R&D Manager.
