The PRETZEL DOUGH program was developed in 2009 by Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels to donate a percentage of our grocery sales (much like current box top programs) to participating schools. With the challenging economy, we feel it’s an important time for us to support schools while empowering kids along the way, as kid participate in “raising dough” for much-needed programs, feel accomplished, and have enjoyed a healthier, all-natural snack or meal option!
During this inaugural year ending June 30, 2010, we are reimbursing participating schools $1.00 per UPC (proof of purchase bar code) on any Kim & Scott’s Gourmet Pretzels 4-Count item! We are excited, as most “box top-like” programs only donate 10-20 cents per UPC or box top.
This program is an example of how we live our mission and mantra “pretzels with a purpose.” The PRETZEL DOUGH program was inspired by both our Pretzel Power initiative (mission to empower kids) and Pretzels for Peace initiative (mission to support organizations that make positive changes in our world community).
