Bob won’t tell you this, but he is a superhero. His family resides in New Jersey and by all accounts lives a happy life in the suburbs. Bob and his family are also perpetual “do gooders”. They don’t sit still and they are not satisfied with the status quo.
About nine months ago we noticed we had a new Twitter follower, HotSauce4Good
. If that name doesn’t spark curiosity nothing will, so we did a little investigating. It turns out HotSauce4Good had helped fund over 26 microloans with no signs of letting up. We had to know more.
We flew to New Jersey not knowing exactly what we would find, but when we got there we were completely blown away.
But he wasn't just selling it, he was selling out of it as fast as his family could make it. He was growing the peppers in his back yard but couldn’t keep up with production, so he started sourcing peppers and other produce from Norz Hill Farm and Hillsboro Farm down the road.
His church opened up their commercial kitchen to him so he could increase production and they regularly have "bottling events" on the weekends staffed by church volunteers.
