To start the year off with a giving spirit, Musselman’s is donating ten cents to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for every package of Musselman’s Natural Apple Sauce purchased in the month of January. The NBCF is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need. Here is the link to a video featuring Peggy Fleming talking about her experience with breast cancer and sharing details about what Musselman’s is doing to help others in need of support.
Musselman’s has recently sent me a complimentary 48 oz Natural Apple Sauce in their pink ribbon package and a few healthier recipes that are perfect for the winter season.
With the colder winter weather just around the corner, Musselman’s wants to help you get cozy and add a serving of fruit to some of the most popular comfort foods (made with their apple sauce!) that not only feed your hunger, but can also help feed hope for those affected by breast cancer.
