Our Story

Why we Sell Gourmet Popcorn Tins

We believe in the empowerment of individuals and communities and that's why 100% of the profits from Popcorn for the People go to Let’s Work for Good Non Profit Organization. Let's Work for Good is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit social enterprise with a mission to provide meaningful and lasting employment for adults with autism and developmental disabilities.

We decided to combine America’s favorite snack food with Sam’s passion and unique world view to create popcorn with a difference. We invited other workers with disabilities to join the popcorn revolution. We joined forces with Agnes, a star chef and mother of an autistic child. While Agnes experimented with new flavor profiles, Sam cooked the popcorn. With friends, family and co-workers as our tasters, the word spread and demand grew. Before we knew it, armfuls of tins were flying out the door. We invited other workers with disabilities to join the popcorn revolution and soon after we opened our first location in New Jersey to an unexpected influx of media attention. With such an overwhelmingly positive response we decided it was time to bring Popcorn for the People to the rest of America.
