Community Involvement

Community Involvement

We’re active in our community!



Garbanzo is dedicated to providing customers with satisfying, healthy options, but our community involvement goes far beyond gyros and falafel. We believe in supporting the communities surrounding our stores in the form of food and coupon donations, sponsorships and fundraisers.

We welcome requests for support and donations from all kinds of groups and are always on the lookout for special causes that are in line with our company principles. Requests for support must be received six weeks in advance of event date. We review requests as they are received, so please apply early. Due to the large number of requests we receive, we cannot honor all of them. However, preference is given to those requests that:

  • Encourage community participation and attract additional support
  • Meet an identified need in the community
  • Creatively promote positive change



When we identify a cause that aligns closely with our company values, Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh takes extra steps to support and advance that cause. Starting in 2012, Garbanzo partnered with First Descents, a Colorado-based organization that provides outdoor adventure experiences to young adult cancer fighters and survivors. For the past few years, we’ve worked with First Descents to support their fundraising efforts, placing donation boxes outside of Garbanzo locations, and providing food and coupons for events. We’re proud to be involved with First Descents and grateful that we can aid such a pivotal and worthwhile cause.
