Hi Y’All, like many of you, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down (all live tours, classes, and markets cancelled). We are still here and pivoting constantly as fast as a little business with limited resources/staff can. Natalie served on the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force (Community Outreach) and increased her volunteer time (and professional background in diversity/inclusion/equity and health education) plus donations to under-served communities; giving back where we can.
Good news, folks are craving our natural cooking sauces for easy, Asian-inspired home-cooking. Our challenge has been distribution as in-store shopping shifts and small brands get left out of online sites like Instacart, ClickList, and Wal-Mart.com. Encourage your networks to limit takeout from national fast food chains. Instead, please ASK FOR, SHOP, BUY LOCAL or WOMAN MINORITY-OWNED small and independent businesses. Order directly from small businesses and farms. Support local/regional farmers, food makers, independently-owned restaurants because we need your help now more than ever! Stay healthy and connected via our social media. We miss you and hope to see you soon! Together we can.
