GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce recently made a donation to Westchester Family Church to help underprivileged Hispanic families !
This is a time in the US when recession has affected many people : Feed The Children's blog reported that 49 million Americans are hungry or at risk of hunger, including nearly 17 million children. And there are 239 counties in the United States where at least a quarter of the population receives food stamps, according to The New York Times.
When families and communities are in need, the generosity of those who are able to give is all the more valuable. It is precisely the reason why we decided to prepare this holiday season by offering 7 000 pouches to Feed The Children for underprivileged people. Feed The Children is a wonderful organization with headquarters in Oklahoma City, dedicated to helping hungry and hurting people for over 30 years. The heart of Feed The Children's U.S. program is distributing food to families in need.
Materne North America was so pound to be able to help a program as Feed the Children. We share a same philosophy: providing high quality and healthy products to children in needs.

Our contribution went to the Westchester Family Church through Green Meadow Group in Hoosick Falls, NY for their annual Harvest Party. There were over 350 community members in attendance, the majority of who are underprivileged Hispanic families.
GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce was a "big hit" at the party for the children : They loved the taste and their parents loved that they were enjoying something so healthy !
Special thank to Christina Cooper, Member of Westchester Family Church.
