A look back at the past year of COVID
(we sigh a little)
March 25, 2021
In an extraordinary year on our planet, Americanos did something extraordinary: We sent $8,500 in lifesaving healthcare treatments and over 30,000 PBJs worth of nut butter to those who needed it most.
This year was challenging, and maybe that's what brought us some new friends:
🏪Americano joined 100 Fry's locations across Arizona (Hello, Kroger!)
📦Launched Cinnamon Honey Peanut on Amazon Prime with our other 4 flavors joining shortly (ehem, April 2021, we're looking at you!).
📬 Joined home-delivery platforms including: Uptown Marketplace, Downtown Phoenix Marketplace, Danzeisen Dairy, Karma Bay and GoPuff
🌐Launched a new website and officially became "Americano Foods" (what do you think is next....?!?!)
Americano's giving mission specifically targets domestic hunger relief partners working directly in our community: well established domestic partners like St. Vincent de Paul, Jewish Family and Children's Service and the Andre House Soup Kitchen. Since the pandemic hit the community groups we were able to tailor our giving towards included these domestic hunger relief partners but also expanded to include groups like a hard hit orphanage in Rio de Janeiro and a St. Jude children's cancer center in Beirut, Lebanon struggling to take in vulnerable children after a large explosion.
You stepped up to turn our world's most challenging year into our company's most giving on record by investing in products that give back. We couldn't be more proud of that.
