Here at Kodiak Cakes we see the holidays as an opportunity to give back to the community in whatever small way we can. This holiday season we partnered with a few local organizations that work hard all year to do good in our community. With help of these organizations, we had the opportunity to spread holiday cheer to those in need and hopefully have a positive impact on their lives. It turns out they actually brought the true Spirit of Christmas to us!
Primary Children’s Hospital
Primary Children’s Hospital is a not-for-profit children’s hospital located here in Utah. They’ve provided world-class healthcare to kids in need for over 95 years. This year, we were lucky enough to partner with Target to provide Christmas presents to kids spending their holiday in the hospital.

Roots Charter School
Roots is a Title I charter school committed to providing youth in our community an authentic, farm-based education. The organization’s alternative approach to education allows kids to “apply knowledge, concepts or skills to solve real-world problems” by working and learning on the school’s farm.
Roots was kind enough to let us visit their campus, cook the students a pancake breakfast, and give all the kids a Kodiak Care kit fully stocked with Kodiak Cakes Mixes and swag! Seeing the school’s hands-on approach to education was nothing short of inspiring.

Surprise & Delight
You don’t have to travel far to help spread Christmas cheer in your community. For us, it was as simple as visiting a local Macey’s grocery store to surprise shoppers by buying their groceries for them at checkout. We even snuck in a few hidden cameras to capture their reactions, and their reactions were priceless!
Share How You Care!
We hope we were able to give you some ideas of how to do good and make a difference in your community this holiday season. If you do give back or volunteer, we’d love to hear about it! Share how you care during the holidays by tagging @kodiakcakes on Instagram and Facebook. Happy Holidays from everyone at Kodiak Cakes!
