Our Commitment

Corporate social responsibility

Making a positive impact on the community and lives outside of our organization is equally important to the Barentz team, as is the commitment to those within. Giving back to others is a collective value that transcends our everyday business operations.

Barentz has proudly supported the Montclair Public School Breakfast Program for years, ensuring children in our community are getting a healthy breakfast each school day. Regular food and toy drives, donations to charitable and humanitarian causes, and education scholarship programs are a few other ways that we’ve been able to do our part in giving back.
