Day 323: Shop Your Way to Being Philanthropic

Share Happiness!

I love food but how can I use food so I can continue being philanthropic. I love wholesome food that makes my body feel good from the inside out. What if the food we purchased gave back to our bodies and gave back to the world? what if the good food i purchase could increase me being philanthropic?

Day 323: Give 323

Some people like to shop for shoes and other for cars. I like to shop for food. I love beautiful grocery stores that make shopping an experience rather than a chore. I spend much time in grocery stores shopping for my family.  I am drawn to stores where you can find a unique selection of products that I know give back to my body, my families body and to the planet.

My most recent discover was Deep River Snacks. I didn’t pick them up because the bag had big lettering on it saying “GOOD FOR YOU!” The flavour drew me in “Twist of Lime”. Next I picked up the bag and read it. Between the ingredients and the companies philosophy of giving back I was sold.

“We’re lucky, we get to come in to work each day and make snacks we love… So we understand that we have a responsibility to our planet and to people that aren’t as lucky as we are. That’s why we choose to give back.” A quote taken directly from the Deep River Snacks charity page.

Here is the great part. Each bag has a different dedicated charity. For example my “Twist of Lime” tortilla chips supports Caroline’s Miracle Foundation. 

But each bag is different. It’s a fun match – do you find your favourite flavour or do you find your favourite charity on the bag and support it by eating this healthy snack.

Now you ask me how is a bag of chips good for you?

All Natural
No Artificial Preservatives
No Artificial Flavours or Colours
No Cholesterol
No Trans Fat

Don’t get me wrong – It’s not like it’s replacing the “apple a day that keeps the doctor away” but as treats go this is a good choice.
Shop for good. Give to your body and give back to the world.

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
