When it comes to human potential and people doing extraordinary things, we love to share stories with our followers. Some on a larger scale and some on a local scale. We recently met with our friends from 34 Degrees Crispbread for lunch at our office to get to know them a little bit better and find out what kind of local organizations they like to support, and boy did we like what they had to say…so naturally, we had to share their story!
Beginning with our first contribution in February 2011, we will make a quarterly donation of 300,000+ Whole Grain crackers to the Food Bank of the Rockies’ “Children’s Totes of Hope” program. Tote bags filled with 8-9 pounds of nutritious kid-friendly food are distributed to children on Fridays to take home over the weekend. For many of these children, the totes are their main source of food on Saturday and Sunday. The crackers donated to “Children’s Totes of Hope” will benefit hungry children in Colorado and Wyoming. Fighting hunger is a cause that is important to our team so partnering with Food Bank of the Rockies makes sense. They serve a need right in our own backyard and we like the idea of providing our neighborhood kids with a healthy snack option.”
We can all agree that what they are doing as a company is helping out quite a few hungry kids and their families! As small businesses, we try to be a part of “the big picture” and give back to the community. So here at Vuka, we just wanted to shine a little light on you, 34 Degrees Crispbread for being part of such a great cause. Well done!
