We at The Real Good Life love our hometown of Milwaukee. In particular, we are head over heels for the wonderful people that live here!

In an effort to show our support, we like to give back however we can. Whether it’s donating to local folks in need, teaching y’all how to live the real good life, or cheerleading for our fellow entrepreneurs and daydreamers, you can always find us ready to cheer you on!

We are proud members of Local First Milwaukee and the Working Moms of Milwaukee organizations. Our staff support for many local-serving organizations including the Tosa East Towne Neighborhood Association, Girls on the Run, and Teens Grow Greens.

Hunger Task Force

Golly, we are lucky folks. To keep that good karma in the air, we donate 2% of all gross sales to the Hunger Task Force and sometimes hold special events to collect even more.

This organization is a critical resource for our friends and neighbors that may otherwise go to bed hungry. In addition to providing nutritious, delicious and culturally appropriate food, the Hunger Task Force does a lot of great lobbying work to ensure issues like nutrition equity and lunch shaming are addressed in our state.

Silent Auction and Sponsorships for Other Organizations

We receive many, many, MANY requests for donations or sponsorships for special events around the area. We would love to support each and every one, but that isn’t always possible. We will entertain a request from any organization within our delivery radius that is working towards the betterment of our youth, environment, or food supply. Please go here to submit your request.
