My son bought me a pouch of Yumbutter (http://yumbutter.com/) the other day.  I had never seen or heard of it before.  It’s different from the run-of-the-mill nut butter.  For one thing, it comes in a pouch, which you knead before squeezing out its gooey goodness.  And, Yumbutter does something that ordinary nut butter doesn’t do.  Every pouch of Yumbutter purchased helps nourish a child with malnutrition.    100% of their funds are going to the feeding, education, medical care and medicine of children born in dire need.  Yumbutter partners closely with a non-profit called Primeros Pasos in Xela, Guatemala to provide care to malnourished children and their mothers.  So far, Yumbutter has fed over 150,000 children.  Their goal is to nourish two million children in 2017.  What a wonderful concept!  If everyone reading this bought one pouch of Yumbutter, it could make a major difference in the lives of these kids.

Yumbutter is a B Corporation company with a score of 100 (most others are 80).  What that means is that they use the power of their business to help our world and its inhabitants solve problems and live better.  In addition to this, Yumbutter offsets 36 tons of carbon dioxide, which is approximately 250% more than they create through reforestation.

But you don’t have to take my word for it.  Give Yumbutter a try.  Yumbutter comes in peanut, cashew, sunflower and almond.  In addition it contains chia, hemp seeds and goji, making it a nutritional powerhouse.  There is also an espresso flavor which contains cocoa, vanilla and cinnamon, and a protein almond butter containing probiotic cultures. It is organic, vegan, gluten free and non-GMO.  In central Pennsylvania it is available at Target and Wegman’s.  It can also be ordered online.

I can’t imagine the despair and pain a mother must feel when she is unable to feed her child.  Yumbutter is a tasty, easy way for us to help, one-on-one.
