To say this has been a a hectic year would be an understatement, but companies across the specialty foods industry have made certain to help out when they can. One such brand its noosa yoghurt, part of the Sovos Brands portfolio, which recently launched a "Full on Grants" Contest, a $20,000 fund to honor Colorado teachers.
"At noosa, we stand for living life FULL ON. We don't cut corners. We dive in headfirst with an uncompromising approach to innovation and life. To give back to our home state of Colorado, we want to reward educators who take that same approach to engaging, teaching, and inspiring our students every day," said Jason Vieth, Executive Vice President and General Manager. "The noosa Full on Grants Contest allows us to give back to our local community here in Colorado in a meaningful way that rewards our local educators who are truly going above and beyond."
Since its founding in 2009, noosa has been a staple in the Colorado community, so naturally the brand wanted to give back to the place it calls home. The noosa "Full On" Grants Contest will give Colorado educators a platform to share their stories on the ways in which they have addressed this year's unique challenges, a press release explained. Ten teachers will be chosen, and each awarded a $2,000 grant to help fund more creative solutions to education in 2021.
