Northerly, a food brand focused on sustainable-growing and eco-friendly practices, was built on giving back. By shortening the supply chain and going direct to consumers, CEO Clayton B. R. Wolfe is able to donate rolled oats for every bag sold. Currently, Northerly’s partners include local food banks, St. Mary’s, the world’s first food bank, United Food Bank, and the largest domestic hunger-relief organization, Feeding America.

According to the USDA, a lack of access to fresh, healthy foods contributes to poor diets and higher levels of obesity and other diet-related diseases. Financial stability is among the top obstacles to food access. Northerly is removing that barrier by donating whole grain oats directly to food banks. On February 10, 2020, Northerly completed its first donation to St. Mary’s Food Bank, totaling 11,103 lbs of oats to be distributed directly to St. Mary’s clients and communities. 

But the benefits of food banks extend far beyond short-term hunger relief. As Wolfe notes, “Each bag of oats isn’t just a week’s worth of meals; it represents an opportunity. Access to healthy food helps kids focus better in school. It gives many families a chance to regain some financial autonomy. One bag of oats goes a long way—they’re nutrient-dense, shelf-stable, and contain many of the nutrients modern diets lack.” 

Northerly’s sustainability mission means they’re committed to growing nutritious crops, supporting local economies and communities, and championing for farmworker safety. Through the latest in ag technology, Northerly uses land and resources more efficiently, with less pollution, less waste, and higher quality, higher-yield crops. Sustainable agriculture is about feeding the future while growing strong communities.

Feb 21, 2020

BEIJING — A preliminary investigation into viral pneumonia illnesses sickening dozens of people in and around China has identified the possible cause as a new type of coronavirus, state media said Thursday. Chinese health authorities did not immediately confirm the report from state broadcaster CCTV. Coronaviruses are spread through coughing or sneezing or by touching an infected person. Some cause the common cold and others can lead to more severe respiratory diseases, such as SARS and MERS. Such viruses are common in people but more exotic versions from bats, camels and other animals have caused severe illness. The novel coronavirus...
