Scarborough & Tweed's donations to World Food Program USA have provided 132,500 meals to children in need as of December 2017. Every Scarborough & Tweed bag purchased provides one meal for a child in need through the company's One Bag/One Meal campaign. World Food Program USA is a nonprofit organization that supports the mission of the United Nations' World Food Programme, the world's largest provider of school meals.
The One Bag/One Meal campaign is part of an extensive give-back program Scarborough & Tweed launched in September 2015. In addition to Scarborough & Tweed's custom bags, products purchased from Scarborough & Tweed's online company stores also support charitable causes. The causes and charities benefitting from the give back program include the following:

- Every tech purchase helps give veterans a chance to continue their service through Team Rubicon's disaster relief efforts or helps provide a college scholarship to children of fallen and wounded service members through No Greater Sacrifice.
