Standing Tall & Finding Purpose Through Employment

At Women’s Bean Project we believe that all women have the power to transform their lives through employment. So we hire women who are chronically unemployed and we teach them to work by making nourishing products. They learn to stand tall, find their purpose and break the cycle of poverty. Because when you change a woman’s life, you change her family’s life.

Every woman in our program does real work, by producing our products and creating a new life.

We produce only real food, products that are simple, unprocessed and delicious.

After six to nine months, women graduate and move to real promise, a career entry-level job in the community where she can advance, prosper, and often, feel valued for the first time in her life.

Over the 2016 holiday season we produced a limited quantity of one of our new products – gourmet popcorn. Each package contains popcorn kernels and seasoning for several batches. All popcorn is non GMO and come in three varieties and seasonings:

  • Rainbow popcorn with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Black Pepper
  • White popcorn with Garlic Parmesan
  • Blue popcorn with Salted Spiced Caramel

The popcorn will be fully available this summer. Plus, we will introduce two other products: Biscuits and Jam, a premium biscuit mix with three ready-to-make, culinary-inspired icebox jam mixes; and three varieties of Rice & Beans, quick and easy rice and beans cups. We are excited to have you try these fun new inspirations.

We will also be introducing an updated brand and packaging of our products to fit more in line with food trends, culinary shifts and to work better on store shelves. On our new packaging we will highlight the impact of the work we do and the lives changed. Watch for the reveal coming soon!

Thanks for coming along on this journey with us!

Tamra Ryan, CEO

    I am wondering how you choose the sites for retail shops. It doesn’t seem as though there is one in the Dallas area.

    • Women's Bean Project says:

      Hi Marianne! The only retail store operated by Women’s Bean Project is our main office in Denver. Otherwise, we partner with some amazing wholesalers who have stores across the country. It would be great to have a store carry our products there!
