Building the Future
As business leaders, we believe it is our moral responsibility to take care of our community. We build successful businesses so we can do good for others. We have a number of non-profit organizations that create opportunities for local farmers, underserved communities, and families who are in the most need of help. We are a business that cares deeply about the health and wellness of our community and we invest in projects that help provide education and opportunity.
Eighty-five percent of our food in Utah is imported from out of state. This means that our community is not getting access to fresh local produce and this contributes to the health and wellness of our community. Farmers are struggling to keep their family businesses because they are unable to secure large retail grocery contracts. We want to empower our farmers by providing an outlet to sell their crops. SIG has developed a non-profit entity to create a year-round indoor “Food Hub” that will offer a local produce aggregation, processing, and distribution to local hospitals and schools, as well as include an artful, community space.
Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based, not-for-profit system of 24 hospitals with more than 2,400 physicians and advanced practice clinicians at about 160 clinics. IHC has pledged $400,000 to our Food Hub program because they believe in helping people live the healthiest lives possible.
We will develop a center of excellence to educate farmers on regenerative farming techniques that lead to healthy soil that produces nutrient-dense, high-quality food while improving the sustainability of our land leading to increased food production and a healthier microclimate.
Education is the key to unlocking our children’s potential. However, not every child is afforded the same education opportunities as others. SIG has committed to develop an after school coding program to help underserved communities learn a valuable skill for the future. We are proud to give back to our community and secure a future workforce of confident, capable, and highly skilled labor.

Beyond providing safe emergency shelter, this facility provides essential basic needs such as meals, clothing, hygiene items, a place for female clients to wash clothes and shower, as well as a welcoming environment for service animals.
