We handcraft small batches of gourmet popcorn that make a big impact through our Garrett Cares programs. We support meaningful initiatives that help promote social justice, wellness, child and family services, education and the arts in the communities we serve—one kernel at a time. Please enjoy learning about our current and former Garrett Cares charitable partners:
INFANT WELFARE SOCIETY

In 2017, Garrett is once again looking forward to supporting A Silver Lining Foundation in its mission to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all, by creating meaningful partnerships with community, advocacy and healthcare organizations.

Gift Great. Do Good.
Garrett Popcorn Shops’ Feeding America one gallon tins and quart tins support Feeding America’s mission to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage the country in the fight to end hunger. Garrett will donate 10% from the sale of these co-branded, special edition designs to support Feeding America and the 200 network member food banks that together help 46 million Americans who struggle with hunger each year. With our fans’ generous participation, our small batches of Garrett Popcorn deliver a big impact: the purchase of a single one gallon Feeding America tin filled with Garrett Mix will secure and distribute 36 meals to people facing food scarcity.
CHICAGO CHILDREN'S CHOIR
Our partnership with Chicago Children’s Choir is such big news that two collectible tin designs were required to contain it all!

Now in its 60th year, Chicago Children’s Choir, which serves 4,400 children annually and empowers its singers to bridge cultural divides and become ambassadors of peace in their communities, will receive 15% of the proceeds from the sale of these limited edition Hebru Brantley tin designs.
