Giving Back: One Box, Five Meals

I, like so many eco-minded mamas, often feel conflicted on the use of food-based sensory play. On the one hand, it’s a proven, largely safe, beneficial experience for children to learn, play and explore. It’s also a great way to make use of food items that may be expired or otherwise unfit for consumption.

But what about the issue of food waste?

There may not be a perfect answer, but I believe that using items like rice and dried beans can be a wonderful way to expose our children to sensory play with minimal processing or mystery ingredients. I also believe in supporting food insecure families and children.

That’s why with each box sold, I’m donating five meals those in need through Feeding America.

Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, more than 42 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 13 million children. The pandemic has most impacted families that were already facing hunger or one paycheck away from facing hunger.

Together, we can help!
