Cow-munity Giving Program Focuses on Local Organizations

May 18, 2018

At Rockview Family Farms, giving back is important to us. Supporting local organizations in our community is at the very heart of what we do. Oftentimes, we provide product donations to events or fundraisers, but we wanted to go beyond that. This past year we introduced a new program that we call Quarterly Cow-munity Giving that allows us to partner with our customers and supporters to give back to our community.

Each quarter, we choose one local charity to promote on our Facebook and Instagram pages. That is where our followers come in! For the duration of the promotion, for any Like or comment we receive on the charity specific post we will donate $1 to the designated organization. For any Share or Page Like we receive on Facebook we will donate $5! We love this opportunity to partner with our followers to support our local community!

Three Organization We’ve Supported So Far:

  1. This past Fall we partnered with Long Beach Rescue Mission and together with our followers we donated $1,000.
  2. Last Winter we partnered with The Compton Initiative and donated $630 for their clean-up efforts.
  3. Earlier this Spring we partnered with Ronald McDonald House of Long Beach and together we donated $1,063 to their 2018 Walk for Kids.

Now we need YOUR help to decide what local charity we should feature this Summer! If you know of an organization we should partner with in the Southern California area please reach out to us on Facebook, Instagram or email us at emilyj@rockviewfarms.com. We couldn’t do this without you, together we can make a difference.

What did the buttermilk say to the refrigerator? Close the door, I’m dressing! Buttermilk dressing screams summer freshness!

This year we had the honor of awarding two college scholarships, click the link in our profile to read all about it in the Downey Patriot! 👩🏽‍🎓📚 We’re thankful for dads! Hope all of you fathers out there felt the love today for all your hard work and sacrifice ❤️ Just in time to plan your Father’s Day barbecue! He’s a classic and so is a 7-layer salad. You’ll be able to use all your veggies from your community garden plot. A 7-layer salad is a tradition worth keeping alive and when you substitute sour cream instead of mayo, you’ve made it taste even better. Layer fresh peas, shredded cheddar, diced tomatoes, green or red onions, bacon, sliced celery, and top with sour cream in a deep clear dish like a trifle bowl for a beautiful centerpiece on your next buffet. You’ll need about 12 ounces of each ingredient, but make it your own. If these aren’t your favorite ingredients, swap in your favorites. Some families are known to use lettuce, diced ham, and chopped eggs. Have fun and enjoy! 🥙🥒🌽🥕🥓🥒🥗 Rockview Family Farms has been the supplier of school milk to districts across the southland for decades.
