For the month of November, Love With Food will feature The Gilded Nut Snack Co.’s premium flavored nuts alongside other tasty gems.  LWF will be shipping its curated boxes of organic and all-natural snacks to thousands of subscribers nationwide today.

Here’s what we’re most excited about:

Each box shipped is significant as it equates to a meal donated to a food bank like Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry. Love With Food has donated 100,420 meals to date and 400 meals to The Good Shepherd Food Bank in Maine.

We have family members who had hunger in their background as children.  This partnership for the month of November is especially personal as meals will be donated to thousands of children around the holidays.

This particular charitable focus is quickly becoming a priority for us. In June, we sponsored the Kennebunkport Festival and participated in Share Our Strength Maine Taste of the Nation. The donations for both were earmarked for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. We are now brainstorming about how we can use our flavored nuts to create our own campaigns to help combat child hunger. We encourage you to think about this important cause.

Though the holidays provide a great opportunity to begin the discussion, the need is year round. If you want to take action now, we recommend that you take action here to start: Share Our Strength. Or if you’re in Maine, you can find out what Mainers are doing through SOS. John Woods who heads up SOS Maine is a tireless campaigner for the cause!
