To inspire families of all backgrounds to eat better food and live longer more vibrant lives.
For all Americans to live a healthy lifestyle, regardless of who they are, where they live or how much they make.
People living in under-served communities (such as low-income families and members of certain ethnic minorities) face many obstacles to living a healthy lifestyle. Because of a wide range of factors such as tighter food budgets, lower nutritional education, and limited access to outdoor play spaces, these communities are at far greater risk for obesity, diabetes and other diet-related illnesses.
In addition to making healthy and delicious products, we provide an annual grant (and volunteer support) to non-profit organizations that are working to eliminate socio-economic health disparities in the US. See below to learn more about our recipients!
The Happy Kitchen/La Cocina Alegre is a program of The Sustainable Food Center that offers free cooking and nutrition classes to communities in need. This year we partnered with them to sponsor two 6-week courses (one in English, one in Spanish) that allowed 50 families to receive nutrition education that was Budget Conscious, Culturally Relevant and Taught by Former Students from their own community.
Project Potluck is an industry organization with the mission to help People of Color build successful companies and careers in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry. In 2020, A Dozen Cousins made an in-kind donation to Project Potluck alongside Beanfields and Mason Dixie Foods in order to help increase the number of better-for-you brands that are built by, and targeted towards People of Color.
