“In high school, while looking forward to pursuing my passions of environmental engineering at the University of Waterloo, I knew that my education was going to be quite expensive. I was happy that I could find a scholarship, like the Mucci Farms “Grow with Us” scholarship, that aligned with my values, was locally sponsored, and reflected my hopes for environmental sustainability.” ~ Lily Stasko

SmuccieGram Donation

Introducing Smuccie-Grams! A brand new, annual Valentine’s Day campaign created to spread love within our local community.

Mucci Farms partnered with the Flower Shop at Thiessen’s to give residents of Windsor-Essex County the opportunity to send a personalized SmuccieGram to a special someone. Each SmuccieGram consisted of a single red rose, a pack of our Award-Winning Smuccies™ Sweet Strawberries, as well as a mini jar of Nutella. This year, 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Welcome Centre Shelter for Women and Families. We are excited to announce that the first ever SmuccieGram campaign has raised $5,500 for the Welcome Centre! Mucci Farms is honoured to give back to such a wonderful cause that supports women and families in need throughout our community, Windsor-Essex County!

Mucci Farms is committed to giving back to the local community through several campaigns and contributions.  In an effort to promote healthy eating to the next generation, one of many initiatives include the donation of several thousand pounds of fresh vegetables to local school kitchens.  In addition to a variety of charitable events, the company was inspired by CEO Bert Mucci’s passion for long distance running to put together a company defining initiative.   Mucci Farms launched “50k for 50k”, a fundraising campaign with proceeds benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  With a pledge to run 50 kilometres, the goal was more than doubled with a total of $115 000 raised, making a wish come true for 12 terminally ill children.

Most recently, Mucci Farms has partnered with Transition To Betterness, a local charity dedicated to bringing comfort to patients and families impacted by life-altering illnesses.  This initiative will see Mucci Farms and Thermo Energy build a greenhouse on-site at Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, a local hospital in Windsor, Ontario.  First of its kind in Canada, the greenhouse will grow fresh produce and serve as a healing garden for patients.  Mucci Farms is dedicated to being socially responsible members of the community and remain committed to charitable work that raises the spirit of people and furthers the goal of promoting healthy eating.
