The Why Behind This
Times throughout Matcha Nude owner Samm's childhood, she and her family found themselves relying on public aid, including assistance with essential resources like food. Enduring various health challenges during this period, Samm gradually recognized the pivotal role that wellness played in her life. Fresh fruits and vegetables were often beyond reach for Samm and her family.
Recognizing the importance of holistic well-being, Bounty & Soul not only ensures families have access to nutritious foods but also takes a comprehensive approach by imparting education on produce, sharing recipes, offering valuable tips on food storage, and so much more.
Upon relocating to Asheville, Samm discovered the impactful work of Bounty & Soul and promptly immersed herself in volunteering with the organization. The inception of Matcha Nude fueled her desire to forge a meaningful partnership with Bounty & Soul, a vision that has now blossomed into reality. This collaboration embodies the spirit of community giveback, creating a synergy between Matcha Nude and Bounty & Soul to contribute to the well-being of individuals and families alike.
