I love supporting businesses that help improve the lives of people in need. I was recently introduced to the Women’s Bean Project, a business that makes delicious gourmet food products and handmade jewelry, and whose mission “is to change women’s lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise. Women’s Bean Project employs chronically unemployed and impoverished women through transitional employment and helps them earn the job readiness, interpersonal and life skills to create a new future – for themselves, their families, our community and our economy.”
The Women’s Bean Project kindly sent me a few gourmet food products to review and I can honestly tell you that their products are amazing! I love them all, especially their Grammy’s Snickerdoodle Cookie Mix and just today I had a chance to try Dillicious Dill Dip which only called for 8 oz. of mayonnaise and 8 oz. of sour cream! As someone who loves delicious food, but doesn’t enjoy spending the entire day preparing a single dish the kitchen, these kits are perfect for me. It’s supposed to be cooler on Tuesday here in Northern California, so I’m looking forward to trying their split pea soup!
I love what The Women’s Bean Project stands for and the vital skills they have been teaching their employees since they started in 1989. Every purchase changes a (Denver) woman’s life for the better! They accept monetary donations and you’re also welcome to donate your time and volunteer to help the cause. You can find extensive information on their financials on the website, but just for example your donation goes to “weekly one on one mentor classes, basic computer skill building, literacy classes” and that’s just the beginning!
I look forward to purchasing dips, cookie mixes and soups for the holiday season and a few gifts for friends and family. Women’s Bean Project gourmet food products are so tasty, and you can’t help but be extremely happy with your purchase since you are helping hard working and very deserving women recreate their future!
