End Summer Hunger

Posting from HQ:  August 14

We know how lucky we are to spend our days dreaming about and creating fabulous chocolate.  But the best part is sharing it with you.  In fact, connecting with our customers is what inspires us.  That is why we make it a priority to develop and donate products for charity and spend time giving back.

This summer we decided to devote some attention to the hunger crisis that is happening right in our own backyard.  The tough economy has swelled the ranks of American households confronting hunger and food insecurity by 30%.  In King County 306,469 residents are food insecure*.  This means 1 in 6 of the county’s population are unsure of where their next meal will come from.

Seattle Chocolates is proud to support Hopelink and Northwest Harvest in their efforts to ensure school age students who are eligible for the free or reduced price lunch program during the school year do not go hungry during the summer months.  And we hope you stay tuned  to learn more about the fabulous new products coming this fall that will make it possible for us to continue providing healthy food to people who need it most.

We can’t wait to make our giving dreams a reality!
