Penzey’s donations program supports causes from attendees to the Women’s March in DC to hurricanes in Texas and soup kitchens and food pantries for communities in need. In the words of Bill Penzey, “…Now when we travel out into the world, it’s that very same spirit of compassion that cooks share around the table that we carry out into the world with us. This spirit of compassion has opened doors that we never even noticed before…Kindness Works. It’s a gift well worth sharing.” The Uptown store featured the Statue of Liberty, the country’s quintessential symbol, as the call for racial justice spread around the nation, from New York to Los Angeles and outside the White House. Life and liberty are human rights and so are freedom from slavery and torture.
