Snacking For A Good Cause: Homeboy Industries' Chips And Salsa

homeboy-chips-and-salsa
Snacking on chips and salsa might normally have you feeling a wee bit guilty, but when it's for a good cause, you really can't say no. The tortilla chips and salsa produced by Homeboy Industries (a nonprofit that helps former gang members get on the right track) have just been announced as the most popular snack item at Ralphs in SoCal. The L.A.-based brainchild of Father Gregory Boyle, Homeboy Industries' chips and salsa represent a much-needed revenue source for the charity, with the funds contributing to services such as tattoo removal and job training. Now that's a cause we can certainly get behind, diets be damned! (LATimes)
