Red Rooster Foundation
Fresh Start exists to have a positive impact on the communities that we serve.

Red Rooster Foundation givingWe believe in giving back!

As a Christian organization, we believe our purpose is to serve and provide support to our communities. We have been able to do this through direct donations, fundraisers and benefits, and our Red Rooster program, all of which is possible through the support of our loyal customers. The Red Rooster program was created to help support local organizations to make a bigger impact for the communities we serve. To date, Fresh Start has donations over $350,000 to local charities and organizations.

How the Red Rooster Program Works

Each month, we select a different bakery item to be our featured Red Rooster product. 10% of sales will be donated to the charity for that month. In addition, we also have donation jars where people can donate spare change to make a change.

Charities We Have Partnered with:

Feeding South Dakota, MDA, Special Olympics, C.A.S.A., VFW’s, Disabled American Veterans, Younglife, Shriners Hospital, St. Vincent De Paul, local fire departments, police stations, sports teams, schools, and food banks.
