CLOSED Holiday Entertaining & Gift Giveaway: Women's Bean Project
About: Women's Bean Project
Since 1989, Women's Bean Project has been dedicated to helping women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment.

Our Mission: To change women's lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise.

Our Vision: Women’s Bean Project strives to break the cycle of chronic unemployment and poverty by helping women discover their talents and develop skills by offering job readiness training opportunities.

With this stepping stone toward success, the women will be able to support themselves and their families, and create stronger role models for future generations.

Our History
Jossy Eyre founded the Women's Bean Project in 1989 as a result of her volunteer work at a day shelter for homeless women. Eyre saw that while the shelter kept women safe, if could not help them make lasting changes in their lives. Eyre bought $500 worth of beans and put two homeless women to work - the first step in building the social enterprise we are today. Our training opportunities have expanded dramatically over the years, and annual operating budget has grown from $6,100 to over $1.5 million.

In 1993, King Soopers became the first grocery store to carry our products.

In 1995, we purchased former Fire Station #10 from the City and County of Denver, and moved to our new home the following year, giving us permanent roots at 3201 Curtis Street.

Today our product offerings have expanded to salsa mixes, spice rubs, coffee beans, and jelly beans in addition to our soups and chili, along with gift baskets, baking mixes and much more.

The Women's Bean Project is so wonderful! It is great to get homemade gifts/foods, but it's even better when you know the profits are actually helping someone! When I received a basket from this company I immediately noticed the time and effort someone put into the packaging of the basket. It was also nice that the women who helped to package the items signed their names. It made the items more real to me and it was very personable. I love their dip mixes and bean soups. They are easy to make! Not only do they have several baskets and individual foods to choose from, they also have handmade jewelry! Make sure you check out this site because they have very nice gifts to purchase and you are also giving a gift to the women as well!

One Lucky winner will receive the Cornbread & Soup Bundle!
