This month I participated in the Lean Green Bean’s Foodie Pen Pal Project. I had a great time sending a box of goodies up to Lisha at JumpEatRun, including Ken’s Coconut Almond Butter! I received an awesome bunch of goodies from my new pal Sharon in Arizona!!
All my goodies on the day they arrived…
These totally hit the spot on in a moment of stress in my classroom!!!
Lots of yummy treats and new things to try! Edamame, Honey Sticks, a great recipe for Paprika Cauliflower, and to top it off homemade peach preserves. So exciting!! And so nice to have a new friend from around the country! Thanks Sharon!
Wanna Be a Foodie Pen Pal? Here is the Skinny:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa.
