We Are a B Corporation

In 2017, we became a Certified B Corporation as a reflection of our founding principles and to help us drive those same principles forward in everything we do. As a B Corporation, Relish meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance, legally expanding our corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests.

Why are we doing this?

Relish has had a longstanding desire to give back to our local community; it’s what led us
to become a B Corporation and is the driving force behind everything we do.

The idea for the Change in the Making grants was born out of this mind frame of giving back in hopes that we could contribute in a more meaningful way. It is our hope to build relationships and create opportunities, both internally and externally.

Relish reserves the right to disperse the service grant in whole or part, as it deems beneficial. Should no applications meet the criteria, the award will be reserved and reissued for applications at a later date.
