We're selling these traditional treats next week to support the Retail Skills Class at the Chinese Progressive Association! The retail class helps low-income immigrants learn customer service and mainstream job search skills like interviewing and resume writing.

Zongzis were traditionally eaten at the Dragon Boat Festival. Check it out for yourself on June 11th and find out more about the ancient patriot-poet Qu Yuan and the Dragon Boat Festival legend.

We've partnered with the Chinese Progressive Association on many different initiatives including the #Fightfor15. Learn more about our partnership below. 

Happy Zongzi Eating!
