Community

Our guiding principles are integrity, service, quality, and commitment. Being a good corporate citizen means supporting the communities that are home to our bakeries and team members. We do this through charitable giving, volunteerism, and sustainability efforts.


Our Focus

Flowers Foods supports many national charities and non-profit organizations as well as regional charities and those located in its hometown of Thomasville, Ga.

While our bakeries and team members are empowered to donate their time, talent, and money to charities of their choice, our company puts special focus on those that benefit children and families.
