What started in 2009 as a local charitable program of donating birthday cakes to bring joy to under-privileged children has now become the umbrella term for Love and Quiches Gourmet’s national campaign against children’s hunger. The company’s Cakes for Kids® program embraces not only our partnership with local charity Island Harvest, but now also includes the donation of a portion of the Company’s profits to charities, both local and national, that combat hunger in children.
Logos for the Wounded Warriors program and Cakes for Kids® are being added to the packaging of our Gourmet Grab & Go® individually wrapped snack product line, as well as on corrugated packaging and select brochures.
Love and Quiches has a long tradition of giving back to our community. The local Factory Outlet Store in Freeport, NY has been in operation almost since the founding of the Company by Susan Axelrod, offering local residents the opportunity to purchase our restaurant-quality products at a fraction of their cost. The Company supports various Long Island charitable and youth organizations; recipients of donated product include Operation Pride of Freeport, the Coalition for Domestic Violence, Youth Outreach, Ronald McDonald House, Catholic Charities of Freeport, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, theHospice Care Network and the Les Turner ALS Foundation and, of course, Cakes for Kids®, our partnership with Island Harvest.
