Food for the body, nourishment for the soul...
What about our granola?
Granola has always seemed like the perfect food to us: wholesome, satisfying, real. Our cooking philosophy is to respect each ingredient and keep everything as real as possible. We select premium nuts, mostly organic grains, seeds, and spices and then prepare each separately to bring out it’s distinctives. Some of our recipes even draw inspiration from the many cultures we work with. Binding them together is sweet local honey and the pride of new-arrivals who are becoming new Americans and rebuilding their lives while nourishing their community.
To date we’ve worked with over 65 refugees, representing 14 nationalities and 20 ethnicities, including many with no first-language literacy. We now offer training at multiple levels, though our priority is those facing the biggest job-entry barriers. Almost all of our employee-trainer staff were once refugees who understand the journey our trainees are on. Over 80% of our trainees go on to permanent jobs while providing for their families, contributing to our economy, and enriching our community with their determination and resilience.
