As an Artist Ambassador, Garner brought Save the Children’s early childhood development and literacy programs to her home state, West Virginia, where more than a quarter of children live below the poverty line.

Committed to a six-year term as one of 30 members of the organization's board, Garner joins the likes of former ABC News president David Westin, former chairman of the Xerox Corporation Anne Mulcahy and ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts.

In 2017, Garner co-founded the organic food company Once Upon a Farm with Cassandra Curtis, Ari Raz and former Annie’s president John Foraker. The company currently offers a line of cold-pressed organic baby food and applesauce but has plans to expand to more categories.
