community outreach & donations

The Carrot Seed Kitchen Co. is only possible because of the support of the Brookings community. We are thankful for the people and organizations who have helped us along the way. In turn, we do our best to support community organizations through money and product donations as often as we are able.

To maximize the impact of The Carrot Seed’s monetary and product donation contributions, we focus on four main criteria that align with our company’s vision, “To enrich the kitchen and nourish the community”. We only provide support to Brookings organizations and events that create momentum and positive improvement in the following areas:

  • Food security and healthy food access
  • Access to safe and affordable housing
  • Food, gardening, agriculture, and sustainability education
  • Empowering disadvantaged members of our community

If your organization and event goals fit within these guidelines, please fill out the below "Donation Request Form" application and return to the Downtown Brookings store or email to We review applications monthly.

In addition to monetary and product donations, we frequently give of our time and talent to support the Brookings community. Please send us an email if you are looking for a donation of time to
