We are working with Feeding America to end hunger across America
Thank YOU, our loyal customers, for your commitment to sustainable products and purchasing organic and Fair Trade products from us. Your purchase has made a big difference in the lives of farmers, factory workers and the environment.
We wanted to do more so we have pledged $10,000 to Feeding America, a leading non profit organization that is striving to end hunger in the United States. This $10,000 will provide 100,000 meals to hungry children and families across America. Additionally, Tony Robbins will be matching our pledge, helping us provide 200,000 meals in total. We are proud to be assisting Feeding America on their journey to end hunger. We want to help ensure that children in America are set up for success and that families get the assistance they need to thrive. Stay tuned for our meal campaign launch, coming soon.
