The granola itself is delicious. The Greater Good makes it taste even better: We donate all profits from each sale to Seattle community organizations. 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 we have been able to donate over $50,000 to the community. We have donated to the IRC, HRC, Planned Parenthood, Familyworks, ADL, and many other great organizations.
The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is unimaginable- no running water, no electricity, food shortages and blocked aid in addition to all of the political and economic strife. I have family and dear friends who worry about their relatives there on a daily basis and I have asked them about organizations that can really make an impact and get aid to the people who need it. ALIMENTA LA SOLIDARIDAD is a Venezuela based non-profit working to alleviate child malnutrition and other side effects of this crisis. All profits for March and April will go directly to this organization.
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.
