The agricultural areas of Mexico and Ecuador are typically filled with families living in poverty, and we feel a responsibility to help provide a better lifestyle for them – regardless of their employment.

GROW and Project Amigo Celebrate the Christmas Fiesta

GROW Bananas Project Amigo Christmas Fiesta

Organics Unlimited believes in helping advance the well-being of the families living in their communities. A portion of the proceeds from every GROW organic banana purchased gets re-invested into the communities surrounding the Organics Unlimited farms in Mexico and Ecuador. Through supporting nonprofit organizations such as Project Amigo in Mexico, GROW funds are used to run educational programs, provide dental and medical care and more.

Every holiday, Project Amigo hosts a very special Christmas Fiesta for local elementary-aged children in the Colima area. This Fiesta is a traditional holiday celebration in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico. As GROW scholarship recipients are required to contribute a certain amount of community service hours every month, they do much of the work in preparing the celebration. Read more
