Beautiful Day began as a way to provide job skills and work experience to Providence's newly arrived refugee community. It started with friends, a few beers, and asking a question: what might help newly-arrived international refugees start rebuilding their lives in Providence? The answer: artisanal granola, of course! Let’s face it, granola is just about the perfect food - wholesome, natural, mysterious, deep. And when it tastes this good, why shouldn’t it help a few people along the way? Using mostly organic ingredients, our granola is locally made in the Amos House kitchen with the help of refugees from Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar,Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Our cooking philosophy is to respect each ingredient and keep everything as real as possible. We select premium nuts, mostly organic grains, seeds, and spices and then prepare each separately to bring out it’s distinctives. Some of our recipes even draw inspiration from the many cultures we work with. Binding them together is sweet local honey and the pride of new-arrivals who are becoming new Americans and rebuilding their lives while nourishing their community.
We have many flavors of granola, granola bars and spiced nuts.
