Overview:

We believe that showing future generations how sustainable food is grown changes their lives. When you eat Annie’s, you support food education and make healthy gardens accessible to hundreds of students across the country. Connecting kids to gardens helps them to start thinking more holistically about their food, their communities, and the planet. We’ve seen firsthand how that exciting and inspiring that is for them.

Nearly 30 years later, Annie’s values still serve as the foundation for everything we do. The journey to become a socially conscious and successful business has no end point, and even though we’re proud of how far we’ve come, year after year we continue to push ourselves to do better. Hop over to our timeline to learn more. Annie Withey believed that it is possible to build a socially conscious and successful business.

This was her goal when she started making delicious Mac & Cheese and selling it from her car trunk when she co-founded the company back in 1989.
