Neighborly Food Co. nourishes and encourages our neighbors in need.
We started Neighborly Food Co. to provide delicious, nutritious food and donate 100% of the profits to help advance the missions of organizations that address food security. One of those organizations is The Pack Shack.
Since 2014, The Pack Shack has engaged hundreds of thousands of people to pack tens of millions of meals for neighbors in need through their crazy fun Feed the Funnel parties.
Hi! I’m Bret Raymond.
In 2009, I helped start MANA to produce a life-saving peanut butter product, and my family moved to Rwanda to see how the product helped children who had been diagnosed with Severe Acute Malnutrition. At the start of the study, there were several toddlers who couldn’t even sit up. But after eating this high powered peanut butter product for just a week they could sit up! They could crawl in two weeks, walk in four weeks, and dance in six weeks! That’s when I decided that getting delicious, nutritious food to people who need it would be my life’s mission.
After returning from Rwanda, I co-founded The Pack Shack, a nonprofit that brings people together for crazy fun Feed the Funnel parties to pack thousands of meals for local communities across the country and, on occasion, around the world. Since 2014, The Pack Shack has packed tens of millions of meals, and people regularly ask where they can get more! In 2018, we started creating a variety of rice and bean meals with a world of flavors with the intention of offering these in stores and online to support organizations that address food security issues.
Welcome to Neighborly Food Co. where 100% of the profits go right back into feeding our neighbors in need!
We’ve taken the world’s most common meal - rice & beans - and added bold, flavorful seasonings that reflect the world’s many and varied cultures. And for those who might not eat rice, we're developing some terrific alternatives, from chickpea rice to gluten free ancient grains! Every meal is made with ingredients you know - no chemicals or artificial anything. This is how my family eats, so it’s what I wanted to provide for others. Clean, nourishing, delicious!
Enjoy these meals at your table, and take delight in knowing that you’ve provided meals for our neighbors in need as well!
