The Wonderful Company has a rich heritage of investing in the communities where our employees live and work, especially in California’s Central Valley. This region is home to about 4,500 Wonderful employees and their families, which is why we’re so committed to our community development, education and health and wellness work in the area. In the small rural town of Lost Hills—home to our flagship Wonderful Pistachios & Almonds plant—we have already invested more than $15 million to help foster a greater sense of hometown pride and quality of life through our civic revitalization efforts, including two new community centers, a beautiful public park, affordable housing, support to local businesses, and extensive municipal infrastructure improvements from sidewalks and streetlights to bus shelters and drainage systems.
Wonderful Community Grants
The Wonderful Company reinforces its commitment to California’s Central Valley communities by supporting the efforts of local nonprofit and governmental organizations. Through Wonderful Community Grants, we direct as much as $600,000 annually toward work being done across the communities of Avenal, Sanger/Del Rey, Wasco and Delano/McFarland. We invite eligible groups to apply for grants in the categories of health and wellness, community beautification, and supporting families. These funds are available for program development, innovation, technology and equipment, and grants range from $5,000–$50,000.
In the first three years of the program, we've already partnered with 34 Central Valley organizations on a variety of wonderful projects, including:
- Mobile dental clinics that brought much-needed services, such as filling cavities and applying sealants, to hundreds of elementary school students across the region.
- The purchase of 12 multi-use fitness machines for community parks in Sanger making fitness easy, fun and free for local residents.
- Car seat technician trainings and free car seat distributions and installations to keep kids safe.
- Community art, computer, healthy snack programs and more!
