This week was the completion of the annual Community Food Share Compete to Beat Hunger Corporate Challenge. This challenge brings together thousands of employees from companies throughout the Broomfield and Boulder counties to join in the fight against hunger.
As always this year’s challenge was filled with unique and impactful fundraising events, including a field day with kickball, a wine auction, baking sale and executive raffles. At WhiteWave, we make it a point to give year round to Community Food Share through employee volunteering, monetary and product donations. This is the one event each year that WhiteWave encourages full employee participation because as a food company, it is especially important to ensureour neighbors have nourishing food to eat.

We are totally STōKed to introduce our new line of iced coffees to our growing coffee portfolio. We launched STōK this past March with two multi-serve offerings and are pleased to announce that we recently debuted three single-serve varieties. All five products will be available starting this June.
Cold brew takes its sweet time. We steep STok at a lower temperature for 10 hours to bring out every drop of smooth, bold, one-of-a-kind STōKness. We produced STōK using a proprietary blend of Arabica-based coffee beans, using a higher ration of coffee beans to water than typical hot brewing.
STōK’s 48 oz. multi-serve bottles come in Un-Sweet and Not Too Sweet varieties, each with a suggested retail price of $4.99.
STōK’s single-serve 13.7 oz. glass bottles are available in Mocha, Vanilla (both made with reduced-fat milk and cane sugar) and Not Too Sweet Black (made with cane sugar) flavors, each of which retail for $3.39.

SPINACH SALAD WITH WHITE BEANS, BEETS AND HALOUMI CHEESE
This delightfully unusual salad is a study in pretty colors and delicious textures, hearty enough to be a vegetarian meal. For a more robust entrée, try adding strips of prosciutto or slices of grilled sausage for additional protein.
Greek haloumi cheese is increasingly available in the deli section of well-stocked supermarkets. It’s delicious pan-fried; do it just before serving so the cheese is still meltingly soft, not rubbery. Be generous with the candied walnuts at the end; they impart a wonderful crunch and a hint of sweetness to balance the salty tang of the cheese and the earthiness of the spinach and beets.
