What do The Perfect Granola and Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection have in common? More than you might think.
Michele Liddle has earned well-deserved national attention for creating a mission-driven product to help fix hunger. Her company, The Perfect Granola, is a valued employment partner of Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection (HW-SC), and a success story for our region and beyond.
Understanding that the best way to fix hunger is through youth, she teamed with HW-SC students to do in-store product demonstrations where they learn about sales, product service, and even personal finance. Michelle’s Perfect Granola bar products are now shared with food pantries and sold in supermarkets in 48 states.
NBC News reports Michele’s inspirational story, “This entrepreneur mom is on a mission to eliminate hunger-one granola bar at a time.” Kudos to Michele for connecting with HW-SC and for sharing our commitment to helping students realize their full potential.
