Opportunities for at-risk women can be scarce, yet, there are organizations that actively seek out to fill the gap. One such entity is the Women's Bean Project. Known for its dedication to rehabilitation, the organization grants jobs to females with histories of incarceration, ex-gang members and former addicts. The work entails them to partake in the manufacturing of health-focused gourmet food items.
Aside from its ethical hiring practices that secure opportunities for at-risk women, the Women's Bean Project attempts to give consumers the chance to snack in health-conscious ways with a vast range of organic, on-the-go products. The latest line includes the Ginger Zing Trail Mix, Chili Spiced Mango, Thai Curry Cashews, Picante Plantain Chips, and Rasberry Gummy Fish.
