Ground Up PDX is a PDX-based, not-just-for-profit company that makes healthful, high-quality nut butter spreads from almonds and cashews. Infused with global flavors and sweetened with just a touch of honey, each jar is designed to delight your taste buds and nourish your soul. The best part? Every nut butter is made in small batches with great care, and provides women transitioning out of homelessness with the opportunity to get back on their feet.

Ground Up is a for-profit business intent on training disadvantaged women in the Greater Portland area in marketable skills through the production and sales of delicious & nutritious nut butters! We take a holistic approach to empowerment, offering personal development services and mentoring during the workday. Our goal is for women to engage in creative self-expression with the hope of gaining confidence and realizing their full potential. Women will work with us for 6-9 months and then transition into full-time employment at Portland-area businesses. Thank you for helping us #spreadgood!

I’m endlessly grateful to work in a business whose focus is on empowerment. There is no bigger energy boost for me than working alongside other strong, independent, resourceful women.
