We believe that manufacturers have a responsibility to be good corporate citizens, via practices, products, and outreach. We seek to support B Corp because it values, models, and encourages corporate contribution to society by setting a measurable standard. The more companies join together, the more that standard will become normative.

   

The Change We Seek®

Homefree seeks to positively impact physical and emotional health, particularly of children and their families and communities. With regard to physical health, Homefree wholesome cookies provide a delicious “healthy snack” option for everyone, as well as an option safe for people with most food allergies and other special dietary needs. But the primary mission of Homefree is to support emotional health through inclusion. Homefree was founded by a clinical psychologist who also is the mother of a child with food allergies. Homefree cookies were designed to make it easy for food providers - whether at stores, home, schools, or other food service establishments - to include everyone together when treats are offered. This is a particularly important experience for children, to support a positive self concept and sense of belonging. For schools grappling with how to meet the needs of students with and without food allergies, Homefree offers a positive solution that is tasty and healthful for everyone.
