Shady Lane Granola is donated regularly to the Bristol Warren Regional School District’s Backpack program. This program helps children living in food insecure homes by giving them a backpack full of food for the weekend. Shady Lane granola is provided in a colorful cup with a lid (see below) so the children can enjoy it easily with milk, yogurt or simply as is!
