City of Good + Lit&Co Benefit Candle
We are collaborating with City of Good! This fantastic organization is a collective action network created by Boise businesses and civic organizations to feed those who are isolated or in need in our community – and put people back to work in this effort during our challenging time of the COVID-19 crisis.
For every candle sold, we are donating $10 (aka one complete, well-balanced meal to an individual) directly to City of Good. Your purchase supports multiple people in our community: the growers and producers of the food items, the cooks creating the dishes, the delivery drivers distributing the meals, the staff making the candles, and the folks receiving the much-needed box meals.
About City of Good:
A Homegrown Initiative to Feed Our Community
City of Good is a collective action network created by Boise businesses and civic organizations to feed those who are isolated or in need in our community – and put people back to work in this effort during our challenging time of the COVID-19 crisis.
We are currently making and delivering meals free-of-charge to those in the community who are most vulnerable at this time. All meals are prepared using high-quality ingredients that deliver strong nutritional value.
Our two current offerings:
$10 Box Meal – a complete single meal for one person.
$100 Meal Kit – 2-3 days of food for two people; offering will include “warm and serve” options, as well as fresh foods with recipes for cooking in-home.
This program accomplishes two urgent objectives:
- Feeds those who are experiencing food insecurity at this challenging time, which includes the recently unemployed, those who are homebound and at high risk for the Coronavirus, and the homeless.
- Puts people back to work at livable wages: cooks at participating kitchens preparing the meals and drivers for distribution and delivery, with initial purchases driving critical cash flow to local farmers and suppliers.
Please help support our City of Good by purchasing $10 meals and $100 meal kits for those who desperately need food here in our community.
THE CANDLE: Our Standard 9oz Soy Candle with 55-60 hour burn in HERB GARDEN fragrance - a nod to the producers, the cooks and springtime in Boise! This scent is a neutral and beautiful blend of lemony thyme, spicy rosemary, bright parsley and fresh basil.
