We here at GrubMarket are proud to partner with Alliance of Moms and are very excited to announce that, for the rest of 2017, whenever you buy your local and organic groceries & produce through GrubMarket, we will now be donating a full order of groceries to a teen mom in foster care. It's simple. Use coupon code “AOM" on your first order. Your account will be marked as a contributor! From then on, every order you place for over $100 will automatically count towards an AOM contribution.
Please help us by spreading the word to get more moms like you participating in this effort. Together we can make a difference for the young mothers of Los Angeles who so desperately need our help right now.
In 2016, at the start of our partnership, GrubMarket was able to donate hundreds of servings of fruits and vegetables to moms in need, and most recently at our Locavore Festival! This local food festival alone allowed us to donate over 350 servings of fruits and veggies as well as over $200 in bar proceeds to the charity.
50% of girls in foster care are pregnant by the age of 20, and without resources or parenting role-models, over 40% of these young moms will be separated from their babies, who usually end up foster care themselves. This cycle is hard to break, and that is why Alliance of Moms is so neccessary.
Founded by five LA moms in 2014, the Alliance of Moms is a membership based auxiliary group that supports their fellow moms in need. Aiding these young mothers with everything from parenting tips to nutrition, their educational programs are focused on empowerment, aiming to give these moms the tools and support to create healthy, happy childhoods.
