Community Give Back | Felix's Famous Cookies

Community Give Back

A generous and giving person, Grandma Toni would have been proud of the donations Felix’s Famous Cookies has made to the community in her name. Ever since Felix baked and sold his first batch of cookies at a neighborhood craft fair at the age of 6 in 2011, proceeds and/or cookies have been donated to non-profit organizations across the country. You can feel good about purchasing from our family-owned company and supporting many wonderful community organizations. Grandma Toni would have approved!
