So, just for the record, March was Chaat Masala Snacking Granola—one of our healthiest granolas yet made with hand-popped high-protein amaranth, chipped coconut, brown rice syrup, and organic dates; it was low gluten, almost no sugar at all, and had a fusion of spices like mango powder, fennel, cardamom, tamarind, chili, and fenugreek to start waking up your taste buds after a long cold winter.

"Thank you for you!"

So far, with your help, the Providence Granola Project has paid about $9,000 in salaries this year and provided approximately 1,000 hours of job experience/training for new refugees.This on top of the fact that 5 out of 6 of our refugee employees have gone on to “real” jobs.When I compare this to the some of the Department of Human Service programs (that I help refugees access in my day job) it’s not bad at all.It wouldn’t be abnormal for the state to pay nearly $4,000 to provide an initial job training/experience for one welfare client—and this comes with no guarantees for further employment.So one way to assess the value provided by PGP this year (beyond the $9,000) is about $24,000.I think that’s pretty good.
