At Step One Foods, we believe that food is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. In fact, we trust our products so much that our mission is to create options for people who can’t or won’t accept a lifetime of medications. We are committed to our mission in every way.
The idea that food is a key component of a holistic approach to health and healing is an idea that’s becoming more widely accepted among many Americans. Between the JAMA study released earlier this year, attributing 50% of all heart disease deaths to diet, and the widespread growth of healthy food options, the role that food can play as natural medicine is evident.
In addition to growing the Step One Foods brand and helping our customers lower their cholesterol by using natural food ingredients, we want to support other organizations that are promoting healthy living.
An organization that is also promoting the idea of treating food as medicine is Open Arms of Minnesota. Open Arms is a 501(c)3 based in Minneapolis, that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities.
With the help of over 5,400 volunteers, Open Arms of Minnesota will deliver more than 600,000 meals to individuals living with Cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and ALS as well as their caregivers and dependents this year alone.
Since its founding in 1986, Open Arms of Minnesota has delivered millions of meals and provided hope to thousands of clients. Their mission “with open arms, we nourish body, mind and soul” has guided their work and that work has turned the once-modest operation into an invaluable part of many peoples’ lives.
Since our founding, Step One Foods has been dedicated to improving the health of our customers. This month, we will use our products to benefit not only our customers, but other members of the community as well.
Throughout the entire month of June, when you use the code OPENARMS20 at checkout, we will donate 20% of your purchase to Open Arms of Minnesota to support their mission of providing food as medicine to those who need it most.
We hope you'll join us in our mission to support food as medicine in every capacity and support Open Arms as they bring hope and nutritious meals to those that need it most.
