Helping fight hunger in communities that are close to our heart.
Our mission 1

Our Mission

We believe food is love — and one way Delicacies shows that love is by fighting hunger in communities near and dear to our hearts.

Every Delicacies purchase fights hunger by donating to organizations that get healthy, nutritious & delicious meals to people in need. Your Delicacies package comes with a Meals Donated card that tells you how many meals were donated through its purchase!

Read up on our non-profit partners, below, who we support financially and through volunteering.

Loaves & Fishes

Located in St. Paul Minnesota, USA

Loaves & Fishes serves evening meals to people in need at over 100 locations throughout Minnesota. Our family regularly volunteers at various meal sites serving clients, preparing food at the commissary kitchen, and helping distribute rescued food in our community. We think it’s essential that everyone has access to healthy nutritious food, served with kindness and respect.

Our role:
In addition to our regular volunteering as a family, Delicacies’ co-founder, John, serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Loaves & Fishes. Loaves and Fishes rescued over 10 million pounds of food in 2023 and distributed over 6 million free meals to people in need. The organization is on-track to distribute more than 7 million meals in 2024.

Our mission 7

We volunteer with the kids from El Renacer throughout the year, planning fun, food-themed activities. Decorating Christmas cookies is always a huge hit!

El Renacer del Mayab

Located in Mérida, México

El Renacer Del Mayab is a non-profit organization in Mérida, Mexico, that serves daily meals to local school children for the past 20 years. El Renacer supports the most vulnerable families in and around Mérida, providing educational programming, instilling values, distributing school supplies, and creating a stronger community. Delicacies sponsors a variety of food themed activities throughout the year centered around our motto: food is love.

Our role:
Delicacies’ monthly financial support helps El Renacer purchase food to prepare fresh, healthy meals for over 150 economically disadvantaged kids five days a week. Additionally, we sponsor various food-themed activities and events throughout the year, including Christmas cookie decorating, Easter egg decorating, seed art, pasta art, as well as an annual celebration of Children’s Day (“El Día del Niño”) in late April.

Welcome to Chinatown

Located in New York City, USA

Welcome to Chinatown is a grassroots initiative to support Chinatown businesses and preserve one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods. WTC embraces the legacy of those who built Chinatown to what it is today: a symbolic neighborhood rich with history, built on the backbone of immigrants and carried on by multiple generations of families, entrepreneurs, and organizations. 

Our role:
Delicacies donates one meal ($10) for every dumpling necklace (and $5 for each bracelet and pair of earrings) purchased to Welcome to Chinatown’s Sik Faan/Let’s Eat Fund. This fund purchases meals directly from restaurants in NYC’s Chinatown and then delivers them to food insecure residents, helping fight hunger while supporting struggling local restaurants.
