DEAN & DELUCA is proud to announce a partnership with Lauren Bush Lauren's FEED Projects, whose mission is to fightworld hunger and help "FEED the world, one bag at a time." Just in time for gift giving this holiday season, the two organizations will launch a limited edition, custom-designed FEED 15 bag filled with exceptional gourmet products from the store. With each bag purchased, 15 nutritious school meals will be provided to help feed hungry children through the UN World Food Programme.
These exclusive tote bags will be available for purchase in-store, in catalogs, and at deandeluca.com beginning September 17. The reversible burlap and organic cotton bags feature the FEED logo on one side, along with the words, "The Children of the World," as well as the number 15 on the reverse, representing the 15 meals donated.
DEAN & DELUCA will offer two different collections of gourmet goods in the new FEED bags:
Pantry Tote – $120
DEAN & DELUCA Fruité Mûr French Extra Virgin Olive Oil, White Truffle Oil, Acacia Truffle Honey, French Roast Coffee Sampler and Coffee Scoop.
Snack Tote – $120
DEAN & DELUCA New York Chocolate Espresso Beans, Christmas Jordan Almonds, Candy Peppermint Bark, Milk & Dark Chocolate Pretzel Bites, Caramel Charantes, Original Mints and a Mazet Praslines Tin.
The idea for the partnership came from Whitney Skibell, whose family owns DEAN & DELUCA. Whitney has always been dedicated to philanthropy, and wanted to find a new way for DEAN & DELUCA to give back to the community this holiday season. She approached Lauren, who was thrilled with the idea, and thus the partnership was born.
"We are so excited to partner with FEED on this project that combines our passion for food with our commitment to helping our community, and are pleased to be able to offer our customers a gift that truly gives back," said Kathryn Flouton, Vice President of Private Label/merchandising at DEAN & DELUCA.
"FEED is thrilled to partner with DEAN & DELUCA, the world's most beloved gourmet food stores, to create and sell a product that will provide much needed food and nutrition to children globally. This bag is a perfect gift for the food lover who also wants to do something good for the world," said Lauren Bush Lauren.
