Not too much is better than receiving a warm batch of cookies. Tiff’s Treats is sweetening the deal by donating 10 percent of all orders, up to $10,000, to benefit the North Texas Food Bank.
“Our fellow Texans have been wonderful to us and to our growing company,” said Tiffany Taylor-Chen, namesake and co-owner of Tiff’s Treats. “It humbles us to be in a position to make a donation to those who need a warm meal to eat tonight. We hope everyone considers sending Tiff’s Treats to someone special during November to be part of what we are doing.”
According to a report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Texas ranks second in the nation in the percentage of people struggling with “food insecurity,” a term that refers to households where members have difficulty meeting their food needs. In 2010 alone, more than four million Texans – 18 percent – either experienced hunger outright or altered their eating patterns to avoid hunger. Moreover, income has not kept pace with the cost of food. In 2000, a family of four could live on a food budget of $434 per month; in 2010, the cost was $583, an increase of 35 percent. Many of those in need are children and the elderly.
Remember, order Tiff’s Treats before November 30th to help donate to the North Texas Food Bank and give back to the community during the holidays.
