Newman’s Own, a company that has donated 100% of its profits to charity since it was founded in 1982, announced the winner of the first-ever “Greens for Good” Recipe Contest! Congratulations to the winner: Amy Hudson of Harrisburg, PA with her “Ain’t No Cure for the Summer-time Blues” salad served with Newman’s Own Lite Balsamic Vinaigrette. Newman’s Own will now make a $35,000 donation in Hudson’s name to The Vista School, the nonprofit organization that inspired her entry. Isn’t that awesome?? I can only imagine how good Amy must be feeling to have won that chunk of change for The Vista School– which brings state-of-the-art special education and therapeutic services to children living with autism in Central Pennsylvania.
