There are many lovely things about September – sweater weather, the sound of leaves crunching underfoot, and a fresh crop of apples to name a few. But there is one thing that tends to crop up in September that is not so lovely – lunch stress!

Whether or not you or your kids are in school, September always seems like a new beginning. Summer fun is over, the more serious fall is approaching: time to get organized! Part of that means packing lunches for work or school. We all know we should do it – it saves money, it’s healthier, and so on and so on – but sometimes it just seems like too much. Lunch stress is real.

That’s why we’ve come up with our five new lunch kits! Each one is tailored to different diets or tastes (with the option to sub some items), and provides lunch staples to make packing your lunches for the week a breeze. Even better, right now part of the proceeds from each lunch kit sold will go to support a lunch program for kids in need in your community (more on that below!).

To celebrate our new kits, we’re also putting them on sale! For a limited time, you can get any one of them – a $60 value – for $39.99!





The Lunch Kits:



Meat + Cheese

Nothing wrong with the basics! This kit comes with high quality sliced meat, aged cheddar cheese, organic lettuce, and Silver Hills bread for some top-notch sandwiches. And for snacks, you get baby carrots, fig bars, bananas, seaweed snacks, and yogurt, so you definitely won’t be bored




Plant-based eating doesn’t have to be complicated – or boring! Mix up your lunches with some veggie sandwiches with delcious Spread’em cashew spread or crackers and hummus with veggies and snacks!





For the younger set (or the young at heart), nothing beats a PB&J! We’ve updated it with Wow Butter – a roasted soybean butter – to make it safe for schools and just as delicious. Paired with some classic snacks and juice boxes, this will make school lunches a snap!





Don’t let lunch stress throw off your macros! This kit full of good fats to keep you on track and help you meet your goals. Spend a little time prepping on the weekend and enjoy easy, delicious lunches all week.
