Whole Foods to Carry Thistle Farms Products

Whole Foods to Carry Thistle Farms Products

Thistle Farms announces that Whole Foods will be carrying Thistle Farms products during the 2016 holidays. Thistle Farms  is a community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction.

We employ more than 50 survivors through our social enterprises which include a natural body care company, Thistle Stop Cafe, artisan studio, and global marketplace called Shared Trade. Started in 1997 by Rev. Becca Stevens under the name Magdalene, Thistle Farms includes a two-year residential program and advocacy services for up to 700 women yearly.  We provide education and training annually through speaking events and immersion workshops.

From the Thistle Farms Newsletter

A team from Thistle Farms just returned from a Whole Foods sales conference in California. It was lead by Ebony Davidson, daughter of Katrina, Thistle Farms graduate and Sales Director. Jovita, a Thistle Farms Survivor-Leader who shared her story with the Whole Foods team, said:
It was a great experience to partner with people who care about our mission. This opportunity helps us carry a clear message to those who still suffer, that women do heal and recover.
Thank you to all the Thistle Farmers who are supporting us as we grow. Look for our exclusive Whole Foods line in 450 stores nationwide for the 2016 holidays!

What a boost for the Magdalene program. Their house here in St. Louis seems to be off to a good start. One can only hope that each of these centers can find a way to be sucessful both socially and financially.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
