Civil Society Organizations

Oldenburger|Fritom supports several charities and civil society organizations (CSOs) who are committed to social sustainability. In line with our policy for corporate social responsibility we show our commitment in today’s society. We do so by offering financial support as well as sharing our knowledge:

Food bank Veendam & the region

Food bank Veendam & the region

Thanks to the food bank Veendam & the region food waste is prevented while families in the region are supported. Over 300 families rely on the support of the food bank Veendam & the region. Oldenburger|Fritom supports this civil society organization financially, with equipment and  by sharing our knowledge.

We donated a freezer, a pump truck, a printer and free fuel. During the busy times around Christmas we help prepare the packages for the families. Our QHSE manager provides free advice on food safety.

 

Jarige Job Foundation

The Jarige Job foundation enables birthdays for children growing up in poverty. They do so by giving away birthday boxes containing everything needed to have a great birthday. The box contains gifts, cake mix, school treats, balloons and other products to celebrate a birthday.

Thanks to this foundation children can have a birthday party to look forward to. The Jarige Job foundation is financially supported by us, just as we do for other CSOs. Thanks to our financial contribution numerous birthday boxes have already been put together and handed out.

Charities

Leergeld Foundation

The Leergeld foundation is aimed at children aged 4 to 18 who grow up in families that have restricted financial means. To prevent these children from falling into social isolation this foundation offers them activities to take part in, during and after school.

Oldenburger|Fritom has been involved with the Leergeld foundation for many years. Our financial contribution is used in four focus areas: sports, education, cultural activities and wellbeing. Enabling children to participate in sports lessons, music lessons and to go on school trips.

 

Brownies&downieS

The Brownies&downieS franchise formula has lunchrooms in the Netherlands, Belgium and Cape Town. Enthusiastic employees with an intellectual disability and a distance to the labor market are working here. They receive hands-on practice in the lunchrooms which helps them to develop themselves.

Oldenburger|Fritom has been working together with Brownies&downieS since it was founded in Emmen. Traditional dishes are being prepared by the kitchen team and served by the employees. In addition to sandwiches, you can enjoy homemade pies and high tea here.
