Taste of Immokalee is among the featured “gifts that give back” on ThirdEyeMom.com.
Everybody loves giving and receiving gifts. Whether it be for a birthday, Mother or Father’s Day, the holidays, or a special occasion, selecting the perfect gift can be challenging especially in a world where we already have so much. So what about giving a gift that gives back? By selecting to purchase a gift from one of the organizations below, your gift will not only give delight and joy to the recipient, it will also give back to someone in need. I can’t think of a better way to give than that!
Taste of Immokalee (TOI) is a benefit corporation created and operated by high school students in Immokalee, Florida with the mission to provide students with real world business and leadership skills and ultimately break the cycle of poverty in their community. Under the guidance of mentors and business professionals, students create and sell products using local fresh produce from Immokalee, Florida – one of the poorest communities in America – and use the profits to address social and economic issues in their community. Most recently, the students raised $10,000 for a local distribution center to buy a new delivery truck for those who lost everything to Hurricane Irma. TOI currently sells six products that can be purchased locally in 18 Publix stores and select Neighborhood Organics stores, or purchased online through the Taste of Immokalee website.
