Cookies with Cause | Pass it on… one cookie at a time

Cookies with Cause logo over Sorghum Cookies

Cookies with Cause was created by Bourbon Barrel Foods in 2015 as a way to give back to the community that has embraced our products for the last ten years. the Board of Directors for Cookies with Cause is made up of Bourbon Barrel Foods employee’s children, ages 10-13 years old. We hope this activity will empower each of them personally by exposing them to business at a young age, but more importantly, have them experience first-hand what it means to give back. Our mission is to pass on good fortune by selling cookies… really good cookies!

We have selected West End School to be our first recipient. West End School is a free, college preparatory school – Pre-K through Eighth grade. The boys selected and capable of doing academic work at grade level or above, and would benefit from a safe environment and high expectations. West End Shcool strives to address all of the issues boys in our community face by creating for its students an environment of high expectations and personal responsibility.

Cookies with Cause promotes awareness and support for non-profit organizations, one cookie at a time!

When you purchase our cookies, you get something good… for doing something good! All proceeds go to a great cause.
