We are thrilled to be a supporting partner with Built Oregon and its grant program, which directly assists local BIPOC food and beverage makers in Oregon through funding and mentorship. Grants are given to address a specific business need with a targeted outcome. These grants are tied to the Built Oregon Mentor Network and Accelerator Program to provide long-term business knowledge and support. Our merchandising and product teams are excited to help, where we can, to assist local food and beverage makers reach their full potential.
Initial recipients are as follows:
Honeybee Lemonade Syrups
People of Colour Clothing
La Familia Cider
The Cracker King
