LOVE TO SNACK? Snack for a cause with “Love with Food.” By subscribing to this monthly box, you will receive an assortment of healthy treats and provide a meal to a food bank. So far Love with Food has donated over one million meals all across America. That is amazing! The snacks Love with Food sends customers are all natural, organic, and delicious.
I spoke with founder Aihui to learn how Love with Food got started. Aihui had been working in engineering, when she decided to take a break and travel. Once she returned from traveling she was helping a friend sell food at her local farmers market. Aihui quickly learned it is challenging for small health food brands to reserve shelf space in large supermarkets. She wanted to use her experience with technology to assist these smaller brands in selling their products to consumers, while giving consumers a trustworthy outlet for healthy snacks.
Why “Love with Food?” Aihui is on a mission to help customers fall in love with junk free snacks! Products are carefully selected based on ingredients and the season. The snacks in the box are either all natural or organic, allowing you to munch, guilt free! In my last box I received, Skinny Pop Dusted Dark Chocolate Popcorn, Glee Gum Pop, Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans, Smooze Pink Guava + Coconut Fruit Ice, Kutoa Peanut Butter & Jelly Bar, Biena Foods Chickpea Snacks, Emily’s Chocolate Northwest Trail Mix, Sheila G’s Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle, and Smarty Pants Gummy Vitamins. My favorite item from the May box was the brownie brittle! It was delicious and definitely satisfied my sweet tooth.
Love with Food has different subscription options that vary in price and quantity of snacks. I purchased the “Tasting Box” plan for $8.00 a month! There are also options for gluten free products. Each box comes with coupons so you can purchase the snacks you tried at a discounted rate. You can also purchase all the snacks directly from Love with Food’s website.
As a college student, it can be difficult to find healthy snack options, but with Love with Food I have them delivered right to my door! I also enjoy trying new food so it is a great surprise when my tasting box shows up. I appreciate the fact I am able to snack and give back to those in need. There is a map on Love with Food’s website showing all the places they have donated meals. They have already donated countless meals and I look forward to watching them continue to grow and give back.
