Passing it on has already taken a firm hold in Miranda and Robert Edmondson’s lives, owners of City Beach Organics in Sandpoint, Idaho. They’ve been helped out by multiple landlords during the COVID-19 crisis, and it was the generous loan of money for a panini press from their eldest daughter that eventually gave birth to City Beach Organic’s famous tortillas.

Their café focuses on catering to many different diets, with plenty of vegan, gluten-free, and whole food options on the menu. City Beach Organics is known for its gluten-free, house-made tortillas, made into a variety of wraps and melts. And it’s a family affair, with their three eldest children employed at the café.

When Miranda and Robert heard about the Pass it On Project they felt it was the perfect time for them to give back in the community. That’s why City Beach Organics is dishing out gift cards to local farmers and businesses that have continued to help support the business and community in challenging times and Columbia Bank is footing the bill. These gift cards will serve as a ‘thank you’ for working non-stop to provide necessary services during this time. “We hope to see people setting differences aside for the sake of helping others in need,” they said. “We all can pay more attention to those around us, to how we can lend a hand in a truly tangible way.”
