Giving Back!

I just watched the ABC Nightly News and caught this story.

Bob Moore .... founder of Bob's Red Mill grains .... turned down numerous bids for his company. And gave it to his employees. Not an employee buy-out. He gave the entire company to the employees.

THIS man is a class act.

And in the days of immorality, thievery and greed running amuck in corporate America ..... Moore is a breath of fresh air.

I pledge .... regardless of the cost difference .... to buy any of his flours/grains that I possibly can. Anything for a man that does the right thing.

He made the statement that his employees were the company. Yea .... I would really like to get to know him.

Bob Moore, if you are ever on the east coast of Iowa.... I have an invitation for you. Come ... sit... have dinner with us. We will be ever so honored to have you.

Always happy to hear that a company I like is also a "good company". BTW, their medium grain cornmeal makes perfect rice-cooker polenta!
