Humanitarian Causes

The Hansen Family Foundation sees the plight of our fellow man as our person opportunity to do some good. Helping the poor, sick, and hungry people of the world is an investment in the future of our planet. How would one ever know what they are truly capable of if they’re never given a chance to grow and flourish? We here at the Hansen Family Foundation support those who help others during times of hardship and despair, so that they might one day have the chance to do the same.

We are happy to announce that we are now have the ability to cater for charity events. If your charity is interested in our catering services, please contact us for more information.
