Our Mission

Today, we have more power than ever to use our healthy snacks as a force for good.
     
I founded Brass Roots to help adults & kids from all walks of life live healthier & happier. I want us to accomplish this not only through our nutritious snacks, but also through our supply chain and our ongoing partnerships with youth organizations.
          
The ripple effect of positive impact is truly tremendous.

Our Supply Chain 
We source our Sacha Inchi seeds from our farming partner in Thailand and Laos, who uses the proceeds to establish and fund schools in his community. To learn more about the social impact of Sacha Inchi, click here!
        
Our Community Partners
At Brass Roots, we believe that an empowered, healthy, and happy youth population is of incredible importance. We also recognize that not everyone has easy access to healthier foods. 
         
To positively impact our community and address this gap, we partner with local youth organizations to provide nutritious alternatives to traditional snacks through donation programs, as well as nutritional, wellness and entrepreneurial education where it’s needed most.
       
Below are some of the organizations with whom we have partnered and who are doing truly inspirational work in our home city of New Orleans.
