The Power of Oats. Bottled.

A Helping Hand: Oatworks Partners with City Harvest

Oatworks is proud to partner with local non-profit City Harvest for the annual Feed the Kids food drive. Oatworks will be assisting with food collection in the drive to provide city children with much-needed summer nutrition. An official release to PRNewswire explains the benefit:

During the summer vacation months, one in four New York City children may face hunger in the absence of school lunches. City Harvest’s annual drive aims to fill that gap by collecting and distributing food to pantries and soup kitchens throughout the summer. Last year, the drive amassed 150,000 pounds of food–enough to feed more than 1,600 families for an entire summer.

In the business of filling people up with superfoods designed to do bodies good, Oatworks couldn’t be a more fitting participant in the drive. Packed with beta glucan, a naturally occurring soluble fiber considered to be the healthiest part of the oat, Oatworks oat and fruit smoothies are a perfect source of energy and nutrients for anyone needing a little food rescue.

David Peters, Founder and CEO of Oatworks, said, “We are very proud to be partnering with City Harvest in their 2014 Feed the Kids food drive. Oatworks is on a mission to bring healthier beverages to the residents of NYC.”
