We like to say that, at Seaboard Foods, we're a big company with a family feel, largely due to our strong community ties. As a company, we encourage action by our employees. Our employees in Guymon, Okla., for example, sit on the board of the local Chamber of Commerce Social Services committee, as well as on the local junior college foundation board, focusing on broadening vocational education programs to support residents in their quest for training opportunities.
Our employees and their families work hard, so we think they should be able to relax with their family and friends after hours. We do our part by contributing financially to community festivals and culture and art programs in the communities in which we operate, including events such as: "Fiesta Day," "Azuma: An African Celebration" and "Pioneer Days."
We are committed to the betterment of the communities in which we do business. From supporting high school sports teams and fire departments, to contributing product to food pantries and donating fertilizer to local sports fields and parks, we understand the importance of civic involvement.
Continuous learning is key to what we do at Seaboard Foods. For that reason, we're committed to supporting and providing educational opportunities to our employees, their families and members of our communities. Some of these initiatives include: Youth agriculture education programs, compressed natural gas safety training courses and many other community programs.
