In an ongoing effort to spotlight unsung heroes, popular salsa brand Fresh Cravings® has hit a major milestone in its giveback campaign, Salsabrate™ The Good.

PHOENIX, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh Cravings, a family-owned brand known for produce-aisle chilled salsas and hummus dips, today announced it has donated $100,000 to grassroots nonprofits throughout the country.

Weekly, the brand highlights each selected nonprofit with original video content, honoring their heroic contributions and introducing them to Fresh Cravings' national audience.

  • Helping Hands for the Navajo NationArizona-based Helping Hands for the Navajo Nation provides supplies and support to the remote communities of the Navajo Nation through the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Khloe Kares – In partnership with Ralphs supermarkets and Empire brokerage, Fresh Cravings presented Khloe Thompson, 14, with $9,000 to help support her organization's mission in serving those experiencing homelessness in the Los Angeles area.

  • Lucille's 1913 Lucille's 1913 is a conscious community collective that gives back to Houston's vulnerable communities by delivering fresh, dignified meals to those in need, daily.

  • Project I AM – Project I AM unites volunteers nationwide to build and distribute Blessing Bags filled with basic supplies like toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, socks, and more.

"It's been an honor to put a spotlight on the incredible causes in the communities we serve," said Jay Whitney, FoodStory Brands chief marketing officer. "There is such a need for support and positivity, and there are so many grassroots efforts making a positive impact every day. We are so inspired by what's already been accomplished with this $100,000 milestone and look forward to seeing what more we can enable these community heroes to do."

About Fresh Cravings®
At Fresh Cravings, we believe our plant-based foods should contain high-quality ingredients with bold flavors worth celebrating. That's why we created an authentic, vibrant refrigerated salsa as an alternative to the soft, dull blends of jarred salsa. And, why we developed a line of hummus dips packed with high-quality ingredients like Chilean extra virgin olive oil, tahini, and chickpeas. Our refrigerated salsa is made with vine-ripened tomatoes, crisp vegetables, zesty peppers, and spices. Available in conventional and organic, Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style, Chunky, and Pico de Gallo salsas pack incredible flavor and are sold at a price competitive with, or lower than other national brands. Fresh Cravings is part of FoodStory Brands, a family-owned Arizona-based company, which searches the world to bring thoughtfully curated and affordably priced food and beverage products to American tables.
