Justin’s Nut Butter Helps Feed the Hungry
This December, not only can you enjoy the Maple Almond, Honey Peanut and Chocolate Hazelnut flavors of Justin’s delicious nut butter, you can also play your part in our efforts to alleviate hunger. Justin’s will be donating $1 from every jar of nut butter sold at Whole Foods Markets nationwide to Conscious Alliance throughout the month.
The easy squeeze packets of Justin’s organic nut butter can be seen throughout the nation in school lunches, hiker’s pockets and desk drawers as a healthy snack for all ages. Justin’s has been one of the main sponsors of Conscious Alliance for the last several years now and has donated thousands of pounds of nut butter, funds, and employee time to help Pine Ridge Reservation
Earlier this year, employees of Justin’s accompanied the Conscious Alliance Team to Pine Ridge Reservation. Conscious Alliance member Jenny said, “It really meant a lot to have the Justin’s crew accompany us to the reservation and have a chance to meet some of the people in the community. They have been one of the biggest supporters of our efforts, and now they are able to put faces on some of the people that are in need on Pine Ridge who benefit from their donations.” Conscious Alliance and Justin’s spent their time on Pine Ridge working together to help distribute food and other needed resources. “Our recent visit to Pine Ridge has permanently changed my life,” said founder and CEO of Justin’s Nut Butter, Justin Gold.
Whole Foods Market has also played a key role in expanding both Conscious Alliance and Justin’s. In addition to Justin’s donations, Whole Foods has donated more than 500,000 pounds of food to Conscious Alliance and has provided nearly 8,000 full holiday meals to Native American reservations across the United States.
“We are thrilled to work with both Justin’s and Conscious Alliance to spread awareness to our shoppers and to our Team Members,” said Errol Schweizer, Senior Global Grocery Coordinator for Whole Foods Market.
By purchasing a jar of Justin’s Nut Butter this December, you are contributing to the Conscious Alliance mission of distributing food and resources to the communities most in need.
