Denver, Colo. – Nature’s Path Organic Foods, North America’s premier manufacturer of organic cereal, has donated $2,500 in food to Big City Mountaineers (BCM), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to enhance the lives of under-resourced urban teens through transformative outdoor experiences. The donation of cereal, granola, oatmeal and toaster pastries will ensure urban teens from Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Oakland, Portland and Seattle have healthy breakfasts on weeklong summer 2010 wilderness expeditions focused on personal growth.
“Growing organic, healthy foods in a sustainable way is why we get up in the morning, and supporting a partner like BCM allows us to use our products to help provide positive experiences for teens,” says Nature’s Path Organic director of marketing and communications, Maria Emmer-Aanes.
“This donation will help the 460 teens and mentors on our summer 2010 trips get off to a great start each morning,” states BCM marketing manager Hillary Harding. “Donations like this enable us to continue to provide meaningful trips for the teens we work with.”
