Ithaca has announced its latest innovation—Everyone Bagel Hummus—and a commitment to giving back, by pledging 5 cents from every unit sold to supporting community-based nonprofits.
The brand set out earlier this year to create the perfect everything bagel hummus for daily use on breakfast toast, but during the development process, the team at Ithaca changed the name from everything bagel to everyone bagel.
"If 2020 taught us anything, it's that everyone needs a hand sometimes. So, we created our new Everyone Bagel Hummus to institute our long-term commitment to community service and inspire our consumers to get involved in the process," says Chris Kirby, Founder & CEO of Ithaca. "Our fans always blow us away with their enthusiastic reactions when we launch a new flavor, and this time, we're inviting them to help us give back."
With the new product rolling out nationally this month via Hungryroot, Ithaca has already committed their first $20,000 of available funding to Common Threads, a national nonprofit that provides nutrition education programs to under-resourced families and communities. The brand is also asking fans to nominate other local and national nonprofits as they decide which causes to support next. Consumers are encouraged to visit www.ithacahummus.com/everyone website to learn more about the program and how to nominate organizations for financial support.
Throughout the fall, Ithaca and Common Threads have partnered with Siete Family Foods to pack and donate up to 5,000 school lunches across the country, giving children better-for-you snack options and teaching them about the importance of nutrition.
