For Thanksgiving favors, Christmas stocking stuffers, or good food for your pantry, purchases from Women’s Bean Project help women trying to get back on their feet.

By giving employment to the chronically unemployed: convicted felons, recovering addicts, victims of domestic violence. Many were teenage mothers and high school dropouts.

Your purchase creates jobs for women (donations are very welcome). In just six to nine months, the women are trained to be great workers for other employers. The women learn to find a purpose, break the cycle of poverty, become self sufficient, support their children and feel good about themselves.

Supporting them will make you feel good, too.

The nourishing products they make include:

  • Baking Mixes
  • Coffees & Teas
  • Dog treats
  • Instant Meals (microwave cups)
  • Popcorn
  • Soups and chilis
  • Spice blends
  • Sweets
  • Gift baskets bundling the products
    Everything is nutritious and delicious, but our current favorite are the Instant Meals single-serving rice and bean cups.

    Simply add water, microwave for 60 seconds, let stand, stir and dig in. They can serve as a side dish or a light meal.

    Beans are a superfood, a low-glycemic-index food that makes a person feel full, so they eat less of other things. They are full of fiber, potassium, folate, iron, manganese and magnesium, and they are cholesterol- and fat-free. Add some vegetables and fruit for vitamin C.

    The Instant Meal cups are our current favorite way to eat more beans. Flavors include:

  • Cilantro Lime with Black Beans and Rice Cup
  • Lemon Dill with Navy Beans and Rice Cup
  • Spanish Style Rice with Pinto Beans Cup

    For stocking stuffers, we love the popcorn, pre-seasoned with seasonings, including Chocolate Peppermint, Coconut Curry, Garlic Parmesan, Pink Himalayan Salt & Black Pepper, and Salted Caramel.

    If you use place settings at Thanksgiving, or party favors, an Instant Bean Cup or tube of popcorn will make everyone feel truly thankful for their family and bountiful dinner.
