A social enterprise benefiting Meals On Wheels Atlanta
For over 50 years, Meals On Wheels Atlanta has been providing nourishing home delivered meals to our senior neighbors. As the number of seniors desperate for support rises, so does our necessity to raise funds. The idea for creating a social enterprise stemmed from the question, “What can we create in our own commercial kitchen to generate additional funds for our Home Delivered Meals Program?”. Our own Chef Robert Gerstenecker, the former Executive Chef of the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, developed our gourmet pecans as a response. Since our pecans have a bigger purpose than just being delicious, we named them Purposeful Pecans.
We cook our Georgia-grown candied pecans in-house, and collaborate with other local Georgia partners to add seasonal variety. All of our small batch treats are vegan, gluten-free, and with such a meaningful mission, guilt-free.
Our products are great for any occasion or can be a snack for yourself. We also make the perfect corporate gift your clients will appreciate.
When you purchase from Purposeful Gourmet Foods, 100% of the proceeds benefit Meals On Wheels Atlanta.
We truly are the snack that gives back.
