Earlier this summer, Wellfare partnered up with CoLab, a SnackFutures program from Mondelēz International, to host the 2023 cohort at our Brooklyn HQ packing Better Boxes.
Over the course of the afternoon, founders from Dream Pops, Mezcla, Legally Addictive Foods, Freezcake, CocoTerra, incrEDIBLE eats, NewGem, Steiner's Coffee Cake of New York and Whoa Dough completed an incredible run of 270 boxes with over $70,000 worth of nutritious and delicious groceries for families in need. In addition to the day of service, Mondelēz International also made a generous financial contribution to help support the growth of our organization. Incredible!
"The entire CoLab team was inspired by the work of Wellfare and its mission to fight food insecurity," said Jackie Haney, Innovation and CoLab Program Manager. "Being at the forefront of food innovation we all know how important it is to improve access and were grateful to be even a small part of making that happen."
