Rouxbe for Life

Rouxbe for Life is our Company's social contribution initiative. And it's more than just a sidebar program, it's actually one of the key reasons we exist as a Company.

Watch Video: Engine of Contribution

The goal of Rouxbe for Life is simple: to help raise awareness for the world’s chronic-hunger crisis in developing countries, and to financially support non-profit initiatives working hard to end this cycle of poverty.

As an organization, education and contribution are the driving forces behind all that we do. We are fortunate that we have developed a business concept and product that contributes daily to the students we serve to better their health and lives through culinary education. We are equally fortunate that our planned success has enabled us to generate revenue that we can contribute back to the world around us, and the people living it that need it most.

5% of Rouxbe’s net proceeds each month go to Rouxbe for Life

Each month we make contributions to hunger relief agencies on the ground in developing countries that focus on work aimed at ending the cycle of poverty. We fund project such as, but not limited to, school feeding programs, micro-loans to entrepreneurs trying to work their way out of poverty, school construction projects and rural agricultural initiatives.

At Rouxbe, we believe that one person can make a difference and that organizations can and should take the lead in supporting many of the well-established and grassroots initiatives around the world that are driving change.
