FWF is an exemplary company when it comes to community involvement and corporate responsibility. A community organization I work for, Kids’ Food Basket, has had the opportunity to partner alongside FWF several times in various ways. Each time, they’ve shown up as a committed partner, bring creativity, and they work to engage as many of their team members as possible. It’s clear that they take their corporate responsibility to give back to the community seriously.
