These are delicious products you will feel good about feeding your family and proud to share with your friends." The mixes are also sourced non-GMO and certified kosher.

For every Essential Goodness mix purchased, King Arthur Flour will donate the cost for Feeding America, the nation's largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger, to supply one meal through its national network of food banks. There is no limit to how much is given, no end date to the campaign, and a guarantee from King Arthur Flour to donate a minimum of one million meals (monetary equivalent of $110,000) by June 30, 2017.
