Announcing a New Partnership with Life & Honey

L&H_AltMark_A_PMS-NB-320_Web (1)We are excited to announce our first domestic partnership, right here in Loudoun County where our U.S. office is based.

Our work with Life & Honey will bring nutritious meals to the children of our local community.  In our first domestic engagement, we’re excited to announce that we will work together to ensure every child has the nourishing foods they need, because we believe that children everywhere must have the proper nutrition in order to thrive.

Join us on Saturday, February 4th from 8am-1pm as we launch our initiative at Loudoun County’s newest fast-casual restaurant, Life & Honey.  Every purchase you make during the Grand Opening celebration will help provide a nutritious meal to a child in need.

Will you help us with a special project in Sierra Leone?
