Our founder, Susan, has always been an advocate for healthy eating. Food choices start at a young age, so Fruit Bliss has dedicated its efforts to supporting organizations that help spread the knowledge of healthier eating options to kids.
Fruit Bliss is excited to partner with The Happy Org™ and its founder, Haile Thomas, for the New York Sugar Shockers Tour which goes to classrooms and empowers students to become conscious eaters.
HAPPY is a youth-founded and led 501(c)(3) organization that promotes youth empowerment through holistic education. They are committed to planting seeds for the next generation to blossom into happy, healthy, informed, and activated individuals in their homes, schools, communities, and the world -- at any age.

Haile Thomas is 18 years old, an international speaker, health activist, vegan food & lifestyle content creator, the youngest Certified Integrative Health Coach in the United States, and the founder/CEO of the nonprofit HAPPY (Healthy Active Positive Purposeful Youth). Haile founded HAPPY when she was 12 years old to address the need for free/affordable plant-based nutrition and culinary education in underserved/at-risk communities, as well as in schools and through annual summer camps.
Fruit Bliss is a proud supporter of the Coalition for Healthy School Food. The Coalition for Healthy School Food (CHSF) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit that introduces plant-based foods and nutrition education in schools to educate the whole school community. They have formal ongoing partnerships with New York City schools and Ithaca, NY schools, and help schools anywhere around the country. They develop recipes, do cook trainings, create educational resources that can be used by schools, and develop curriculum. Each year we are thrilled to help support their programs and participate in their food tasting gala. The next gala is September 26, 2019 in New York City.
