We’re commited at Sigrid’s to be active in the larger Kingston community, and here are a few of the ways our store gives back.
Sigrid’s loves to support local farmers and merchants, giving them a chance to get their products out there, and a way to compete with larger companies.
We currently have a lush Tower Garden hydroponics system in the store, and everything we harvest from it is going to Loving Spoonful, a non-profit that works to provide healthy food to those who need it the most. A lot of our unsold fresh produce also goes to them.
Sometimes it’s just a matter of giving organizations a little space when they need it. There is a little box on our counter at all times, collecting donations for the Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative (in exchanged for one of their cute cat toys). In fact, Sigrid’s donated the catnip!
Once a week, local farm Roots Down uses Sigrid’s as their pick-up point for their CSA produce shares.
