Furthering its mission to improve access to fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables in food deserts across the U.S., TRISCUIT, a Mondelēz brand, has announced its first changemakers to join The Missing Ingredients Project: Max Kaniger and Asha Walker.
"TRISCUIT has been providing whole-grain nourishment as part of a balanced diet to families for generations and we believe that everyone deserves access to affordable, fresh food," said Becky Duke, Associate Director at Mondelēz International. "Through The Missing Ingredients Project, we are extremely proud to support changemakers in food deserts across the U.S. who are working every day to help ensure people can access fresh fruits and vegetables for themselves and their families."
According to a company release, Kaniger, CEO and Founder of Kanbe’s Markets in Kansas City, and Walker, CEO and Founder of Health in the Hood in south Florida, have each been awarded a $50,000 grant to support their innovative, community-based programs that have a meaningful impact on food insecurity in food deserts. This investment is part of a $1 million commitment over the course of three years, which launched in November 2020.
Changemakers are selected based on their passion for creating inventive ways to improve food access in their own communities. TRISCUIT invites other changemakers across the country to apply for a $50,000 grant to implement new ideas and programs in their regions. To apply for the grant, click here.
