Community Servings Rates Among the Nations Best Charities

 

Charity Navigator

We are so proud to share with you that Community Servings has once again received the 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation's largest independent evaluator of charities. Nineteen percent of U.S. charities rated have achieved this 4-star evaluation for two years running. This "exceptional" designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Community Servings from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust. 

 

According to Charity Navigator's President, Ken Berger, "Community Servings has received a consecutive 4-star rating. Community Servings consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America." 

 

David Waters, CEO of Community Servings said, "We are so proud to be recognized by Charity Navigator again, for the attention our board and staff devote to small business practices, thoughtful community engagement, and cost-effective nutrition programs for the critically ill. To us, it says a donation to Community Servings is a wise investment."
