You probably know shepherds as people who herd sheep, but in Mediterranean culture where Chobani comes from, shepherds are first and foremost known for their generosity. A shepherd would give a gift without asking for anything in return: a cup of yogurt, a loaf of bread or even the shirt off their back. That is why a Shepherd’s Gift means so much.
This is what inspired Chobani to start the Shepherd’s Gift Foundation, because we have realized that the world is still full of shepherds, big and small. You probably even know a few: your mother, a close friend, an organization, someone in your local community or maybe you’re a shepherd yourself. The important thing to know is that when you combine the power of all shepherds it will make a real difference in the world.
