Back to School, Tillamook, and Feeding America

Let me start by saying… this isn’t a paid post. This is a post on doing social good. I received information about the Tillamook/Feeding America initiative and wanted to help out. We also received an adorable back pack! (You can win one too) So now that we’ve gotten that out of the way…

It’s that time of year again! Back to school! And as a mom… I’m constantly trying to come up with quick and healthy school lunches. This year…. I’m giving bento boxes a shot. My kids have been in school for two weeks now and bento boxes have worked really well for us! What’s a bento box? Basically… it’s a lunchbox with dividers. One of the main staples in their lunches is… cheese!

Speaking of cheese… Tillamook, the authority on delicious all-natural cheese, is teaming up with Feeding America, the nations leading domestic hunger-relief charity. How can you get involved?

Starting today… Readers can visit the Tillamook Facebook page and visit the Back to School tab to submit a favorite recipe, snack, or tip! For every submission on the Back to School tab… Tillamook will donate $10 to Feeding America! Every submission also enters readers to win a Tillamook backpack full of back to school goodies and all-natural Tillamook treats!

Tillamook has also given us an exclusive %15off coupon code for their online store. Just use the code backtoschool, at check out, to receive your savings. Thanks Tillamook!

Let’s do some social good and get involved to benefit Feeding America!

Fruit and Cheese Kabobs


Wooden or plastic kabob sticks

Cookie Cutters (to shape your cheese)

A nice block (Or Tillamook loaf!) of cheese

Your favorite fruits


Simply cut a slice of cheese thick enough to keep it’s shape once you use the cookie cutters. You can also use the cookie cutters to shape melon slices. Slide your fruits and cheeses onto a kabob stick and serve chilled!
