September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a cause that is close to our hearts at Eminence Organics. A survivor of a rare form of childhood leukemia, Eminence Company President Boldijarre Koronczay made it his mission to make the benefits of organic nutrition accessible to all children going through treatment. The Eminence Kids Foundation has since provided an incredible 50,000+ organic meals (and counting) to sick children and their families across the globe.
Boldijarre’s personal story is at the heart of the Eminence Kids Foundation. When he was just four years old, Boldijarre (pictured left) was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood leukemia and given a less than 0.1% chance at survival. To this day, he credits a large part of his recovery to his family’s unwavering support and insistence on organic nutrition.
THE EMINENCE KIDS FOUNDATION
The Eminence Kids Foundation truly is a family effort. Mr. and Mrs. Koronczay, along with Boldijarre and his brother Attila, began the foundation in 2013 with the goal of helping other sick children recover with healthy and organic nutrition. With the help of hundreds of international supporters, the Eminence Kids “family” has grown to include locations in Canada, Hungary and the United States.
50,000 ORGANIC MEALS SERVED
Since its inception, the Eminence Kids Foundation has served more than 50,000 meals to help sick children recover with healthy, organic nutrition. Working hand-in-hand with award-winning chefs, the Eminence Kids Foundation provides locally-sourced, balanced and nutritious soups and smoothies to help support healing, wellness and long-lasting health.
Providing education about the benefits of organic nutrition is at the heart of both the Eminence Kids Foundation and the Eminence Certified Organic Farm. Each organization strives to instill healthy choices in children at a young age, teaching future generations about the importance of organic nutrition and its impact on lifelong health and wellness.
