Shop for a cause on this day and 5% of our net sales will be donated Global Growers Network! This local nonprofit connects international farmers who now live in Georgia to agriculture, by growing good food, training farmers, and creating economic opportunities. Global Growers Network works primarily with metro-Atlanta’s international refugee community, made up of people who have been forced to flee their home countries due to war, genocide and persecution. Many were farmers back home.

Make your shopping list and stock up because the more you shop, the more you give!
