Overcoming Hardships

Following Hurricane Harvey in 2017, founders Mark and Nicki found themselves with a lake in their neighborhood and thousands of displaced neighbors. While their hives were spared, a wild hive of bees on their property was ruined in the storm and the bees had gone. They teamed up with a local grocery chain to distribute meals to residents in shelters.
