YOGI has, since it was founded over 40 years ago, supported various facilities for people in need and neighbourhood charity events, with local donations in kind, through sponsorship and other means of robust support. Here is a short overview of some of our local involvement.
In Hamburg in particular – the European headquarters of YOGI – we have been supporting a number of small and large projects to help people in need. One example is our long-term partnership with the ‘Mittagskinder’ Foundation. In their two facilities in Hamburg they provide more than 200 socially disadvantaged children with free healthy meals, homework help, socio-educational support and lots of educational and sporting activities.
In Hamburg, YOGI also supports the ‘Bio-Brotbox’ (organic lunch box), whereby pupils receive a reusable breakfast box containing tasty organic food.
In the areas of storage and logistics, YOGI has traditionally co-operated with service-providers such as alsterarbeit and Nordeifelwerkstätten to help integrate people with special needs into society, provide them with employment and help them become part of German society.
Since 2013 YOGI TEA® has been supporting Germany’s largest online donation platform betterplace.org. Worldwide, betterplace.org connects those who want to help with those who need help and passes the donations entirely to the projects.
