How One Website Fights Hunger With Gourmet Goodies
Name: Love With Food
Big Idea: It’s a subscription-based online food gourmet delivery service that sends tasty morsels directly to your door. For every box of treats it delivers, Love With Food donates an equivalent amount of money to a local food bank.
Why It’s Working: Smaller food producers often have trouble affording marketing and distribution services, and one in every five American children are going hungry. Love With Food is helping to solve both of those problems in one fell swoop.
Aihui Ong launched Love With Food four months ago with a simple premise: Users pay a small monthly fee, and they’re treated to a sampling of gourmet snacks, such as apple cinnamon fig cookie bars or sweet chipotle almonds. Customers select which snacks they want, and a package is sent right to their front door at the beginning of every month.
