I started wear your snacks in an effort to get people to crack a smile via silly, snack-related jewelry; more importantly, however, it started as a project that would allow me to give back to communities that could use a boost right now, particularly during this bizarre and uncertain time. Each month, I will choose a different organization to donate a portion of sales to; this month's organization is Just Food.
a little bit about them, from their website:
"At Just Food, we work passionately to shift the power, health, and wealth of historically marginalized communities that have been purposely divested from by developing community-driven solutions to inequities within the New York regional food system. We catalyze action and create change through our learner-centered trainings, annual conferences, and vibrant network of small- to mid-scale regional farmers. For the past 3 years we have made racial, economic, and environmental equity our north star."
Previous organizations include Off Their Plate, Black Visions Collective, Know Your Rights Camp, Sunrise Movement, The Okra Project, Fair Fight, Swing Left, Feeding America, Restaurant Workers' Community Foundation, Heart of Dinner, Mission Oxygen India and City Harvest. If there's an organization you'd like to see me donate to in the future, please email me suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org!
