Donating 1% of all online sales to our non-profit for August: Food Empowerment Project.
Food Empowerment Project seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. We encourage choices that reflect a more compassionate society by spotlighting the abuse of animals on farms, the depletion of natural resources, unfair working conditions for produce workers, the unavailability of healthy foods in communities of color and low-income areas, and the importance of not purchasing chocolate that comes from the worst forms of child labor.

Miyoko’s Kitchen Wins 2017 DeliciousLiving Award
DeliciousLiving announces Miyoko’s Creamery as the 2017 Best Bite Award for Best Vegan Cheese. “This flavorful, USDA Organic ‘cheese’ reminds us of an aged, smoked Gouda. Miyoko’s version, however, is made with cashews, chickpea miso, nutritional yeast, sea salt and cultures, resulting in a nuanced, smack-you-in-the-face tasty cheese substitute perfect for pairing with a glass of merlot.”
Delicious Living, and parent company New Hope Network, have been trusted voices in the natural food and living community for more than 30 years. The Best Bite awards celebrate natural food and beverage companies that make healthy living easier by sourcing ingredients with integrity, formulating products with reasonable amounts of sugar and sodium, and minimizing the impact on the environment.
