A friend of mine who is fairly recently gluten-free saw this Love with Food box on our dining room table the other day. (I had just taken the photograph and hadn’t put away the snacks yet.) “What is this?” she asked, drawn to it immediately.
I told her: Love with Food is a monthly food subscription service. They only work with producers who make high-quality, delicious food. All the snacks are free of artificial coloring, flavoring, msg, trans fat, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oil. They have good taste. I always like the food. And they have a gluten-free box, curated by one of our favorite people, K.C. Pomering from G-Free Foodie. That gluten-free box consistently has great products, ones we already love — some of them so much so we work with them as sponsors of this site — and some that are new to us. We keep the snacks in the car for the kids when they are hungry after swimming or when we’re in the city. And for every box Love with Food sells, they donate two meals to a hunger organization, such as No Kid Hungry. Plus, they just dropped their price to $24.99 a month for the gluten-free box. You’d pay that much in snacks in one trip to the grocery store.
We really do love Love with Food.
As she looked at each interesting snack, one after the other, all of them gluten-free and safe for celiacs, she said with wonder: “What a great idea! I have to sign up.”
We think you should too. That’s why we’re happy to announce Love with Food as our latest sponsor.
We asked K.C. to tell us more about Love with Food.
How would you describe Love with Food as a company?
Love With Food is a subscription box company with a very real heart. Love With Food helps customers discover new organic or all-natural foods very month, by delivering a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty products directly to their door. For every box sold, Love With Foods donates a meal to a food bank in the US (via Feeding America Network, Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry and other charities). For every Gluten-Free Box sold, two meals are donated to children in need.
Why do you feel it is important to curate boxes of gluten-free food for folks?
There are great companies making delicious, 100% gluten-free products that lots of folks don’t even know about! We here at Love with Food try to connect those products with the people looking for them, so our members find new foods to love, and they know those products are totally celiac safe.
What kinds of companies do you work with?
It’s a mix of small artisan producers and companies that are just starting out, and the larger companies that make a concerted effort to produce clean, natural, tasty gluten-free products. We get certifications, gluten-free testing information and review manufacturing practices for every product that goes in the box. In some cases, I even tour the plant.
What kind of foods do you like to provide?
The Love With Food Gluten Free Box by G-Free Foodie features 12-15 delicious products every month. I won’t ship anything that isn’t tasty and 100% celiac-safe. Beyond that, all the Love With Food products are totally free from artificial flavors and coloring, hydrogenated oils, trans fats and high fructose corn syrup – these products are organic or all-natural, every time.
Can you share a customer experience that means a lot to you?
Just recently, a mom of a newly gluten-free kiddo shared that she was so happy and relived that her son is excited every time the red box shows up at their door — all healthy, all-natural products that she knows are Celiac-safe — so she lets him tear into the box when he sees it. That’s why we do this.
We think you’ll like Love with Food as much as we do. We hope you support them by subscribing. Right now. you can save 50% on a box for August.
Love with Food is giving away an August box to three readers of Gluten-Free Girl. Leave a comment about why you are interested. Winners will be chosen at random on Friday, July 3rd and notified by email.
