The granola itself is delicious. The Greater Good makes it taste even better: We donate all profits from each sale to community organizations doing good. Every time you buy our granola, you can feel good knowing that every cent over the full cost of making this granola will go to support our community.
After 4 years in business, thanks to many of you, we have been able to donate over $50,000 to the community. We have donated to the IRC, HRC, Planned Parenthood, Familyworks, ADL, Alimenta La Solaridad (in Venezuela) and many other great organizations.
In May and June we raised $3,000 to fight the law makers in Georgia pushing thru a "fetal heartbeat bill" (H.B. 481) and trying to take choice away from women. We will divide the money equally to donate to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and the Yellowhammer Fund who are fighting to protect women's choice and to keep the Supreme Court's hands off our bodies by protecting ROE v. WADE. (Ovens are now closed until mid- Sept!)
How do we choose the charities? We like to keep the cause as close to the product as possible as hunger continues to plague our community, and we plan to channel a large chunk of our profits toward fighting it and any and all causes with hunger/food safety adjacencies. We also find that we are increasingly setting our giving agenda based on what our current administration continues to say and do- usually the antithesis of our values and ethics.
