They say breakfast should leave you satisfied.
A bowl of Granola for Good doesn’t just fulfill your hunger — it supports a bigger cause.
Created by local do-gooder and self-taught baker Mary Stonor Saunders, the small-batch cereal is packed with natural goodness: almonds, pecans, coconut, honey, dried cranberries, and golden raisins.
Stonor Saunders started baking her product in the kitchen of the Living Room Cafe, a division of Inspiration Corporation (a nonprofit dedicated to alleviating homelessness and poverty). She donated ten pounds of granola a month in exchange for the space. Today she provides a large percentage of the proceeds.
Eventually, she hopes to branch out to other charities. In the meantime, every little bite counts.
