Sponsoring the Future – Forward Thinking
Caring for the environment means giving back and by working together both you and Purebread can make a difference to the future health of our planet.
Our commitment to sustainable programmes is exemplified through the many national and community groups we sponsor including schools in the Garden to Table programme and many Enviro schools and Kindies.
Get Kids Growing with Organic Seeds
Your Children can change the world with Purebread's nationwide Organic Education Programme. The education of the next generation in areas of organic gardening, food, sustainability and healthy living is part of our belief in an amazing future.
For every pack of Organic Pizza Bases or loaf of gluten free Young Buck you buy, Purebread will donate a sachet of seeds to an organic education programme for a kindergarten, primary school or Te Kohanga Reo. It is one small way we can help protect our environment and ensure a healthy future for our kids.
Recycle Your Granola Bags and Sponsor a TreePartnership is what we are all about and in 2010 Purebread partnered up with schools, councils, landowners, other businesses and you, to promote tree planting in our communities. The Trees for Survival programme uses Purebread Organic Crunchy Granola bags, recycled by you, to nurture young seedlings with inspiring results.
Our first batch of over 150 seedlings grown in the Crunchy Granola Organic Muesli bags were a huge success and were presented to Waikanae School in September 2010
Paraoa Bakehouse supports three local Kapiti Coast schools directly by contributing half of their signup fee for the programme - $300 for each school. In addition, we encourage our customers to send us back their packs of Crunchy Granola Organic Muesli and an extra 25 cents for every bag returned goes towards participating schools. The bags are then handed over to Trees for Survival for seedling planting, a handy way to recycle the bags and a great base for young seedlings to grow.
Please send us back your Crunchy Granola bags so we can plant even more
Coeliac Hockey Star – Anna Thorpe
Those of you who are athletic will understand how hard it is to maintain peak physical performance. Purebread is a proud sponsor of Anna Thorpe, international hockey star, Commonwealth Games Silver medallist and Northland Sports person of 2010. Anna was diagnosed a coeliac a few years ago and now has to manage her diet carefully to avoid gluten yet still maintain peak performance.
Purebread provides Anna with a weekly supply of gluten free foods – breads, pizza bases and even the odd treats such as cakes and bikkies. Anna is also fully kitted out in the latest training outfits and casual wear courtesy of Purebread.
“My energy levels have been a million times better since I was diagnosed a coeliac, so have my performances”, says Anna. “I am very grateful to Purebread for their ongoing support as they help me maintain a balanced diet and sustained energy throughout the day”.
Anna needs all the energy she can get! As well as being an international hockey player she is also a kindergarten head teacher looking after lively 3 – 5 year olds!
Go Anna! We’ll continue to support her throughout 2011 as she takes on more hockey challenges.
We give away flour sacks to people for reuse for firewood or pinecone sales, or as weed mats. This also has the benefit of building relationships.
We donate product to community groups. We donate as much bread each week to our local food bank as they request – currently 20 to 30 loaves.
Over the years, we have regularly hosted school visits to our bakery – where we have the chance to help children understand the baking process, as well as our passion for organic food production.
