New Horizons Partners with Vons and Pavilions to Launch Our Delicious Cookies!

New Horizons will begin selling our delicious and freshly baked homemade chocolate chip cookies, now known as New Horizons Cookies, at two local supermarkets on Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28 with a special pre-launch display.

These tasty treats will be carried at Vons at 18439 Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana and Pavilions at 6543 Platt Avenue in West Hills.  The official start date for the cookies to be in the stores is Friday, April 29.  According to New Horizons President and CEO Cynthia Sewell in regards to this exciting opportunity, “Vons and Pavilions have been a valued partner of New Horizons for decades.  Over the years Vons has donated more than $70,000 in foundation grants to our cause and employed dozens of clients at 13 of their San Fernando Valley locations, playing a major role in the New Horizons’ Supported Employment program.”

In addition Carlos Illingworth, Southern California Director, Communications and Government Affairs for Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions, said: “Ours has been a comprehensive partnership.  The cookies only sweeten the deal, complimenting and enhancing our relationship with New Horizons and the people they serve.”

New Horizons clients have been baking cookies through the organization’s food preparation program since 1982. Up to now they have been distributed at New Horizons and at local events.  The nonprofit’s new partnership with Vons will introduce them to a whole new audience of cookie lovers, while allowing its clients to be an even bigger part of the community.


New Horizons Cookies are being launched on Friday, but you can come to Vons and Pavilions today and tomorrow (April 27 and April 28) when we will be offering free samples of the cookies and the opportunity to buy them at a special pre-launch price!  100% of the proceeds from New Horizons Cookies sales will go towards benefiting New Horizons programs and services which include job training and placement, education, counseling, residential services and social programs for more than 1,000 adults with special needs annually.
