Community is one of Komen CSNJ’s mission pillar values; because of the support of the community, we are able to further our vision of a world without breast cancer.
The value of community is also essential to the Frutta Bowls’ mission; this is why they give back so generously to many organizations like Komen CSNJ each and every day.
“Community involvement is part of our core values,” said Chris Ives, CFO of Frutta Bowls. “Every store we open looks to start by partnering with a charity in the local community because the way we see it giving makes a difference in someone’s life.”
Join Frutta Bowls and Komen CSNJ in the fight against breast cancer on Thursday, October 4th from 4pm-8pm at participating Frutta Bowls store near you. Enjoy a tasty and healthy snack from their menu and 20% of your purchase will be donated back to Komen CSNJ!
The Komen CSNJ team will also be on-site at select Frutta Bowls locations. Come say hi and stock up on Komen swag — and enjoy a special discounted registration rate for the MORE THAN PINK Walk ($20 for adults, $10 for children under 10)! We’ll be at the following locations on October 4th from 4pm-8pm: Freehold, Marlton, Marlboro, North Brunswick, Robbinsville and Princeton.
The Frutta Bowls team is excited to join the local community at Komen CSNJ’s MORE THAN PINK Walk on Sunday, November 4. Their team is already preparing for the day and sharing nutritious bowls and smoothie suggestions to get everyone ready to walk!
“For energy, you could go with our Muscle Up Bowl,” said Ives. “It’s an açaí base, topped with granola, banana, and peanut butter. Açaí is filled with amino acids, which aids in energy production, and there’s chocolate whey protein added into the base, which will boost your metabolism.”
A healthy lifestyle is dictated by everyday choices you make from the moment you wake up. At Komen CSNJ, we believe positive health-focused choices in your everyday routine will make a difference in your body and mind.
Studies show that making these healthy choices can lower an individual’s breast cancer risk — plus, eating healthy, staying active and maintaining a healthy weight is good for one’s overall health.
“A healthy lifestyle is important to the Frutta Bowls customer because caring about your health and wellness will only improve your life,” said Ives. “Eating a well-balanced diet and regularly exercising will make you feel better, both mentally and physically, and that joy will then start to show up in other areas of your life.”
Even the busiest people can stop for a smoothie or bowl. Crazy schedules do not necessarily mean fast-food and frozen meals.
“Those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle tend to always be on the move, leaving little time to sit down for a meal,” said Ives. “A bowl or a smoothie is perfect for someone on the go who’s also looking for something filling and nutritious. All of the ingredients we use are fresh and free from preservatives and added sugars.”
