Our Community Work


Grace Foods Canada Inc. believes in giving back and helping to build the communities where we live and operate our business. Our contributions provide assistance in the areas of hunger alleviation, health education and community outreach. As a group, we are committed to doing our part to enrich our communities.


Good Shepherd Ministries

Grace Foods Canada is passionate about hunger alleviation. On Sunday, December 3, 2017, we donated a dinner complete with rice, chicken, vegetables, salad, dinner rolls, ...desserts and of course some delicious Tropical Rhythms and Grace coconut water to feed 600 people at the Good Shepherd Ministries.


Daily Bread Food Bank

Grace Foods Canada aims to limit the waste of product by donating short dated product so that it can go to those in need ...through our network of food banks and soup kitchens. In keeping with our hunger alleviation efforts, we also do an annual bulk donation to help keep food banks well stocked. Last year’s donation went to the Daily Bread Food Bank.


Operation Christmas Child

Our team certainly knows the joy of giving at Christmas. It has become an annual tradition for our GKO staff to participate in “Operation Christmas Child”, a Christmas gift-giving initiative for children ...in need. This past year we provided 75 boxes!


GK Jamaican Birthright Program

Our headquarters in Jamaica offers a summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students of Jamaican descent living in Canada, the U.S. and UK. It’s a cultural and professional internship geared at highlighting all ...aspects of Jamaican life for a well-rounded Jamaican experience while furthering the career goals of the selected candidates.

Grace Gift Baskets

Grace Foods Canada supports a wide range of over 150 fundraisers and charities through our product sponsorship and Grace gift baskets ...that are the perfect addition to a silent auction or as a door prize.


P.A.C.E. Canada

GraceKennedy has been a long time supporter of P.A.C.E (Canada) – an organization focused in early childhood education. Our work together has been most fruitful and rewarding. Mary Ann Chambers, the president at P.A.C.E (Canada)... sent us a warm thank you that we would like to share with our community.
“For years, GraceKennedy has been a consistently reliable and a generous supporter of P.A.C.E. (Canada). When we approach GraceKennedy for gift baskets, or other kinds of support to raise funds for the very important work that we do, they make us feel like we are all members of the same family, like our missions converge.The people at GraceKennedy obviously understand what it takes to build healthy and successful communities. They seem to know that communities thrive when their members – businesses, not-for-profit organizations and individuals respect, appreciate and support each other. We applaud their wonderful sense of community.” Mary Anne Chambers, President, P.A.C.E. (Canada)
