Recognizing The Hard Work Moms Do Every Day! @hamptoncreek #Partner



    Many people are out and about trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer.  Others are busily trying to get everything ready for back to school and buying uniforms, school supplies and lunch boxes.  However, there are mothers out there right now worrying because they don’t know where the money will come from for their child’s next meal much less, how they will buy pencils for school.

    Unfortunately, they have to make hard decisions every single day because they are trying to raise a family on limited funds.  Often, this means that they settle for foods that are not as healthy for their children to eat because they are the more affordable option.  It’s the only way that they are able to stretch their grocery dollars even though they are aware that these foods are not as good for their kids as their more expensive counterparts.

HamptonCreek-Just Cookie Dough

    Hampton Creek is making the right thing the easier thing for moms everywhere.  This mission was born from the simple, loving bond between a mother and her son.  One CEO, named Josh Tetrick, decided to show that he is grateful for all of the sacrifices that he witnessed his single mother making throughout his childhood.  It is his fundamental belief that moms should not have to choose between keeping a roof over their children’s heads and feeding them healthy foods.

Josh Tetrick

    He started his company because he deeply believes that eating well should be easy.  The right thing, for our bodies and for the world, should be affordable.  It should also be delicious and not compromise flavor.  Hampton Creek has built a movement, and the fastest-growing food company on earth, around that philosophy.

Our Impact

    Over the past few weeks, Josh Tetrick, Hampton Creek’s CEO & Founder, has been writing letters to the New York Times. They’ve been addressed to big names like “CEOs” and “Presidential Candidates.”  This week he decided to write a letter to his mom…and this is her reading it for the first time.  People are loving this unexpected and amazing story of recognizing the hard work Moms do every day!

Let’s Discuss:  What do you think about this mom’s unexpected and emotional moment?

  1. I absolutely love the Hampton Creek brand. It’s my go to for mayo and has replaced all of the others in our home!! Great post and great job being a Mom! 🙂

  2. I love his big heart! It is so true that there are moms out there that struggle financially and it’s difficult to afford even basics like food. So glad to see someone trying to make a difference.

      It breaks my heart that some moms have to work so hard just to put food on the table for their kids.

  3. I haven’t seen his brand around here, but love the story behind it. Will keep an eye out for it!

  4. I have never tried this brand before, but you definitely have my interest piqued. The products look great and I wouldn’t mind eating some raw cookie dough.

  5. I’ve seen this brand in the grocery store, but I haven’t tried their products. This is a great information you’ve shared. I will make sure to buy and try their products next time I go to the grocery store.

  6. Awwww… how sweet that he wrote a letter to his Mom. I can remember my Daughter telling me how she felt about me. This was after she grew up of course. Made me cry… a happy cry.

  7. I have never heard of this brand either. I will look for it now!

  8. I was a single mom who worked two jobs to support my daughter. I can appreciate the hard work that moms put into raising their kids, especially if they are single parents.

  9. I’ve never heard the brand! This is great, what a nice way to make a huge difference in people’s lives!

  11. Aww this is lovely, what a fantastic idea – sometimes I don’t tell my Mum often enough how special she is.

  12. This sounds like a cool company. It’s nice to see companies taking steps in new directions.

  13. This is truly beautiful. Good food should be a right and accessible to all no matter what.

  14. I know how hard I work as a mom. I am so grateful that moms with even harder positions get recognized.

  15. I love this. I ADORE Hampton Creek. I got their just cookie dough and 4 or 5 of their mayos and OMG so good. This is amazing, and I’m soooo happy to see this.

  16. Sounds like a great company. I have never heard of Hampton Creek and the products sound like ones I would use.

  17. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these in my local store- I am going to look harder! What a great story- being appreciated is such a beautiful thing!

  18. Haven’t tried this brand before. Thanks for informing us of brand and its story. I’d love to try it too.

  19. I haven’t seen this brand but definitely want to support it by buying the products. Where can I get them? I will go to the website to see if there is a clue there.

    Hampton Creek sounds like a great company. I will have to pick up a few of their products to try.

  23. All moms should know what the “healthier” thing is… and we need to stop subsidizing junk food and need to teach our kids about real food. I hope more companies follow through and do this as well.

    I’m glad that they are devoting some time to recognizing how hard Moms work everyday… Many Moms do work that no one ever thanks them for and it is terrific to be recognized.
