Our Partners in the Community
Covidien supports Community Cooking
Covidien recently awarded the Rhode Island Community Food Bank a $7,500 grant to support the Food Bank's Community Cooking: Wholesome Eating on a Budget nutrition education program. The Community Cooking program helps food pantry clients develop a healthy lifestyle by empowering them to cook and eat well using Food Bank staples. The Food Bank offers eight-week classes and a variety of workshops, which feature live cooking demonstrations and practical advice on how to shop for healthy food even on a limited household budget.
The contribution represents Covidien's commitment to improving the health and well-being of the communities where its employees live and work. Through COVIDIEN CARES, Covidien's global giving and community outreach program, they promote health and well-being, working side by side with the people and communities they serve. By making grants, donating products and supporting volunteerism, COVIDIEN CARES and its initiatives seek to improve the quality of people's lives.
