Artisan Feature: Women's Bean Project
What do you call a bean that...
- tastes delicious
- can give you an afternoon energy boost
- and changes lives?
Magic beans? Well, yes -- a very practical kind of magic; The Colorado-based Women's Bean Project works to "change women's lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise in gourmet foods manufacturing."
The program employs chronically unemployed and impoverished women through a transitional work program and helps them earn the job readiness, interpersonal, and life skills to create a new future - for themselves and the economy. Instead of a one-time handout, women in WBP programs acquire the tools they need to sustain their families for a lifetime.
Global Gifts at Nora is pleased to offer a variety Women's Bean Project soups: Toni's Ten Bean, Lentil, Ruth's Secret Recipe, and Split Pea. Baking mixes include corn bread, snickerdoodles, brownies, and Denver Tea Room scones.
But WPB's Chocolate-covered espresso beans are the magic you won't be able to resist! A customer favorite, they are more than just a smidgeon addictive for any coffee lover on your list... delivering a delicious crunch, a pop of caffeine-induced energy, and a better life for hard-working women.
