Bantam Gives Back to the Community
Since starting Bantam Bagels in 2013, one of the biggest entrepreneurial lessons we’ve learned is that it’s not all about selling, but about connecting.
Giving back to the community has always been important to us. Bantam Cares is really just a symbol of our gratitude and thanks to YOU - everyone in our NYC community, all of our Shark Tank fans, and all the foodies, mobile munchers and bagel enthusiasts across the US who have supported us from the beginning. We continue to wear our hearts on our sleeves, always seeking opportunities to give back!
COVID 19 SUPPORT: DONATIONS TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS
We started by donating boxes of Bantam Bagels to health care workers around the country, and then partnered with our friends at Pro mobile Kitchen to donate and deliver thousands of meals to health care workers and frontline heroes in and around NYC.
2020 GRADUATING SENIORS
We donated a year supply of Bantam Bagels to 6 incredible, deserving, awesome graduating seniors in the class of2020. Picking the 4 winners was probably the hardest decision we had to make in 2020 as each one of the hundreds of submissions were amazing and inspiring!
NYC'S LITTLE ANGELS DAYCARE
We partnered with Little Angels Daycare in NYC to provide essential learning materials to ensure their students had key resources available for a healthy, safe and supportive learning environment. We also made sure to share our delicious bagels with the kids – learning is always easier when you are full and happy!
LOCAL NYC DONATIONS
Our American Dream started on Bleecker Street in NYC’s West Village, and we owe so much to that community for helping us grow into the business we are today. To show our appreciation and support for NYC, we partner with several local organizations to donate food, toys, care packages and more to people in need. Some initiatives include donations to City Harvest, Food Bank for NYC, Holiday Toy drives with the NYPDs Sixth Precinct, and making care packages for community First Responders.
