OUR MISSION

Our Foundation

Happy Family Organics was founded in 2003 by Shazi Visram, with the mission to change the trajectory of children’s health through nutrition. A mother, woman of color, and activist, Shazi built the Happy team on the foundation of acceptance of diversity, and created value in raising the next generation to do better in building a more inclusive and just world. These beliefs created a vision that now more than ever drives us to take action and make progress towards racial equity.

It is our responsibility to strengthen what we’ve built – to look to our team, our partners, and our communities to impact, support, and advocate for diversity, justice, and equity. We stand in solidarity with the Black community, working to be proactive contributors to the anti-racist movement now and every step of the way as we strive to build a better future for our children.

Action for Change

Our mission and our values remain focused on building a better future for all children. This starts with ensuring that our team reflects the diversity of the communities and families we serve, allowing us to strengthen and advocate for this vision from within.

But our work does not end there.

We are committed to doing our part to break down the systemic & institutional barriers that marginalized communities face, as we raise and empower the next generation to continue to fight for a more just world.

We encourage open and honest feedback on how we are doing throughout this journey.
