Fresh Smoothies for One and All
The Blend FC Mission is to overcome hunger and malnutrition globally, starting in our own backyard, here in the United States. We want all kids to have a fresh start and the opportunity to grow up with daily access to natural, whole foods - unrefined, unprocessed, non-GMO and organic, wherever possible. We have seen first hand how fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies have dramatically changed attitudes, emotional health and key physical health indicators like BMI. Our commitment is to deliver one of our delicious smoothies to a child in need for every one that is purchased through one of our retail or direct sales channels.
The Blend Fresh Crew = Founders and Staff
We Blend For Children
We Blend For Community
We Blend For Charity
The Blend Fresh Club is our ambassador program - those that will help us reach out to communities across the country and world
The Founders are all former athletes who competed actively, some professionally, at Soccer, Tennis and other sports. They knew how important it was to get proper nutrition in order to compete, and were fortunate enough to have homemade meals with their families growing up. Over the years, they realized that millions of children and young athletes don’t know where their next meal is coming from. These boys and girls rely on inexpensive junk food that provides little to no nutritional support to a growing young body.
Chad started Sips & Kicks in 2012 to address this need, and has delivered hundreds of thousands of smoothies to communities in need, mostly through schools. Now, he brings in his teammates to form Blend FC, using their collective life experiences with a goal of providing healthy and delicious smoothies for everyday nutritional balance, and for those in need.
We are the Blend Fresh Crew!
1-FOR-1 GIVE BACK
We believe a healthier world is a better world. That everyone, no matter their circumstances, deserves balanced nutrition. Especially growing children that want to exercise and thrive. So we spent years perfecting our simple and delicious smoothies. Each smoothie is analyzed by a food scientist and nutritionist and made with love.
For each smoothie purchased, we donate a smoothie to a malnourished child. Each purchase makes a difference. Smoothies will be donated through our partner organization, Sips & Kicks.
Many kids do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Other snacks are filled with added sugars and unhealthy supplements.
Healthy smoothies are not accessible to poverty stricken children.
Fruits and vegetables are key to a healthy, balanced diet.
HEALTHY EATING HABITS ARE LIKELY TO STAY WITH YOU IF LEARNED AS A CHILD
Healthful eating has many benefits for adults & children. It can:
➢ Stabilize energy.
➢ Improve mind function.
➢ Balance moods.
➢ Maintain a healthy weight.
➢ Prevent mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety & ADHD.
Having a healthy diet and focusing on nutrition are some of the simplest and most important ways to prevent the onset of disease. These include obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Around half of all Americans have one or more of these illnesses.
SIPS & KICKS
All Blend FC donated smoothies will be delivered through Sips & Kicks, our sister non-profit 501 c3.

Sips & Kicks has been delivering fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies to elementary school children for 8 years - having delivered over 250,000 smoothie meals around the Tri-State Area over that time.
