What does your business do?We prepare freshly made fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies, fruit infused waters, organic green teas and lemonades. Our mission is to educate our communities on the benefits of juicing, blending and infusing. We are also establishing a mentoring program entitled "Fruitful Souls". Our mission is to produce goods for flourishing results. We strive to empower our youth and women.
How would you use the grant money?We will use this money to apply for our 501(c) to register our mentoring program as a non-profit organization, and to market and promote the benefits of juicing.
What would the grant enable you to do that you can't now?The grant will help us get our program up and running effectively. It is very difficult to receive donations and assistance from organization without your 501(c). Outside of juicing we really push our customers to be healthy from the inside out; meaning we want people to be physically, emotionally, mentally and financially healthy. Under Fruitful Souls we've held a Back to School drive for our youth and our first women's empowerment workshop called "Women On the Move" in order to continue our mission we need monetary assistance.
If Idea Cafe's Grant helps your biz reach greater success, how will you "pay it forward" to help others in some way?We will continue to have workshops, clothing drives, food drives, mentoring programs, market and promote our business and sign-up mentees under our program.
