Lentilicious – Lentil Meals. Cooks in minutes!

For every $5 raised, we will give a food-insecure college student a packet of Lentilicious.

Lentilicious makes quick, easy, tasty, healthy, complete lentil meals. Our entire team has experienced food insecurity at some point in our college or graduate school lives. Our mission for this campaign is as humble and easy as Lentilicious: to give back where it counts. We are collaborating with college food pantries locally and across the USA. With your support we will donate Lentilicious to hungry college students. For every $5 raised, a food-insecure college student gets Lentilicious.

OUR STORY:

Lentilicious, a deceptively simple complete meal: Red split lentils already blended with exotic herbs and tantalizing spices in perfect balance. Just add water. Cooks in 7 minutes.

Originating in Australia in 2009, we are a company that’s got a spunky brand name and a unique product line.  Lentilicious was created to be “gourmet worthy,” jammed with plant protein, and fantastically tasty, but at an affordable price. Primarily formulated for “camping, gluten-free, vegetarians” somewhere along the way, we realized that Lentilicious truly is a product for our time; healthy for our bodies as well as the planet, and that everyone can benefit from, and enjoy eating Lentilicious.

Our Vision

The vision for this campaign is to help any food-insecure college student so that they can focus on their success in the classroom and thrive in their millennial-inspired lives.

Lentilicious is easy to cook, requiring little or no cooking space or skill. This ease of use makes it perfect for dorms, shared kitchens, tiny homes and on collegiate “outdoor adventures.”

 We will continue to produce natural, high quality lentil meals that meet the growing consumer demand for quick, easy, cost-effective food and we want to inspire people to seek a healthy lifestyle that leads to a happy life.

We are a fun, yummy, quick, easy, portable, and truly a progress-inspiring millennial product.

Our Connection to College Students

Over the years, our entire team have benefited from exceptional, lifelong connections to universities and college students: For decades, Sonja (Dr. Lil) has taught many college students that she eventually found to be disadvantaged, and hungry.  Both Lisa and Sonja are Penn State alum who have lived and had close interactions with college campuses in Australia, China, and all over the USA; Johnson witnessed his fellow students’ latent plight while attending Cal and Stanford; Jamain graduated from Columbia University, clearly witnessing the opulence as well as the potential destitution for students in NYC. 

This year, we have witnessed the national press shed more light on the growing hunger problem and food insecurity on college campuses, highlighting the importance of College and University Food Pantries. This is why we need you and your help.

Can We Do This?

Yes, with your help! We will start small by donating meals to our local college food pantries, then with your support, we will expand our reach across the country.  We already have a solid partnership with UC Berkeley, and we start stocking their food pantry within the next couple of weeks. We also have tentative plans for partnerships with other organizations in the second phase of this campaign. Details will be unveiled with your support.

Whether or not you are able to assist by donating, YOU can help still by getting the word out and make some noise about our campaign!

We want our lentil meals to be available for every food-insecure college student.
