Clif Bar Serves Up a “Big Dinner”

And you thought we only make bars?

Well, once a year our employees come together to cook, pour, plate and serve our guests in a fundraiser we affectionately call the “Big Dinner”.

Video: Clif Bar Donates a Day to the Alameda Point Collaborative

Since 2001, the people here at Clif Bar & Company have been collectively donating at least 2,080 hours each year (and usually, much more) to our favorite causes, in what we call Project 2080. Why 2,080? That’s how many hours one full-time employee works in a year.

A couple times a year, we pool everyone together and shut Clif HQ down for an entire day of service to a single organization. Last month that organization was the Alameda Point Collaborative, that’s working to end homelessness by providing housing and services to create communities where formerly homeless families and individuals can flourish. APC operates a community garden, bike shop, commercial plant nursery, health center and community center.

So what do you get with almost 200 employees pitching in for a day of manual labor? Check out the video to see how it all went down!

San Francisco Bicycle Coalition: Giving Back One Bike at a Time

Happy Bay area Bike to Work Day! In honor of our local holiday (OK so it’s not a real vacation, but certainly a vacation from our cars, right?), we wanted to get Bay area people caught up with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, an important organization that is leading the charge for bikers in San Francisco.

We have a program here at Clif Bar & Company called Project 2080 where we collectively donate at least 2,080 hours to our favorite causes throughout the year. Tina Reid works on the LUNA Experience Marketing Team at Clif Bar, supporting LUNAFEST (our traveling film festival by, for, about women) and Team LUNA Chix. I caught up with her on all things SFBC and her rewarding experiences working with the organization. Enjoy!

Chris: What is the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition all about?

Tina: The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is an 11,000 member-based advocacy organization dedicated to creating safer streets and more livable communities for San Franciscans. The SFBC is responsible for bicycle access on the Golden Gate Bridge, bicycle access on mass transit, 201 miles of bike lanes/paths in San Francisco and working with City Hall on a citywide bike plan to increase bicycle transportation to 10% for all city trips.

Happy Earth Day 2010!

Today marks the 40th annual Earth Day— that’s right, the FORTIETH! So in honor of Mother Nature, we here at Clif Bar & Company have been getting in the Earth Day spirit by challenging ourselves to donate 400 hours of service to environmental organizations during the entire month of April. So that means we’re asking every single person here to donate at least two hours of earthy service this month in what we call the 2080 Earth Month Challenge.

Clif Bar & Company Earth Month - 2080 Challenge

And to make it a little competitive, individual departments at Clif Bar that organize an event and log the most hours per person get $4000 toward a planet organization of their choice!

New Orleans—Day 5

Eric's back with a few words on his final days in the Big Easy and wrapping up a week with In Good Company. Well, we just finished our work here in New Orleans for In Good Company and I have to admit it—exhaustion's setting in. Five emotional days of home construction, garden building, partying through the wee hours and just generally running ourselves far past “E” each day have really put our bodies and minds to the test. As fatigued as we all are, though, everyone is in great spirits—a testament to the strength of our incredible group and their…
