Community is not just another buzzword to throw into the blender — it is a (real) big deal to us.

When Covid-19 hit, doctors and nurses were working around the clock to take care of an influx of patients, risking their own health in the process. They needed an emergency transfusion of convenient, nutrient-rich food to nourish their inner hero. So, we created a campaign that to date has donated:
8,700+ bottles of juice to frontline health care workers throughout the Bay Area.
In April 2020, two high school students approached us with an idea to give a bottle of immune-boosting fresh juice to every unhoused person in San Francisco. Inspired by their compassion, we partnered with nonprofits who helped us distribute:
