Sobae: producing amazing sorbet and juices from perfectly ripe fruit
In 2020, GPA was pleased to support Sobae with a $3600 grant. This organization uses “perfectly ripe” fruit that is sold by vendors in the community to make delicious and healthy sorbets and juices. GPA funding allowed them to move from a push cart to a store. GPA provided additional funding ($3300) during the COVID crisis to support their needs as they move to a virtual community
In 2021 GPA provided additional COVID related funding allowing the organization to operate during the pandemic. Finally, in October 2021 Sobae received a second level grant for $10,000. Funds were used to increase production of their best-selling sorbets, purchase additional equipment and hire two employees. In addition, they increased their product line to include gummies and donut cones!
