A campaign from Partnership for a Healthier America

About + Impact

We’re Passing the Love to Families in Need

In conjunction with Higher Ground Productions and Mrs. Obama, Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) has launched Pass the Love w/ Waffles + Mochi to meaningfully shift our food culture starting with good food, prepared and enjoyed at home. With support from our partners and individuals like you, we’re raising funds to distribute 1 million Pass the Love mealkits to families across the country.

Socially-conscious food service organization Genuine Foods will source, assemble, and ship the Pass the Love meal boxes to participating cities. Each box will include high-quality ingredients, and easy, replicable recipes to create three family meals that are fun, fast, and affordable. All recipes will be inspired by or featured in Waffles + Mochi and will support children participating in the cooking process and earning ingredient badges.

Help us meet our goal of 1 million meals

Why This Matters

Food is the building block of good health. So food equity is about making sure everyone has affordable access to good, healthy food, and the opportunity for good health. Unfortunately, too many of our friends and neighbors lack that access, and the COVID-19 pandemic has made a bad problem even worse, pushing even more Americans into food and nutrition insecurity. Partnership for a Healthier America, through the Pass the Love w/ Waffles + Mochi campaign, is working to bring good food and new adventures to families around the country and we need your help. Learn why this is so important below.

Food insecurity

Good, healthy food is either too far, too expensive, or both for far too many Americans. One in six Americans lack access to enough food for their families.

Nutrition insecurity

Even more Americans suffer from nutrition insecurity, lacking access to the right kinds of foods to lead a healthy life. We want to bring healthy, nourishing food to communities – just like the kind Waffles + Mochi explore on their adventures.


The pandemic has increased food and nutrition insecurity throughout the country.  Access to good food can help people build immunity so that they lead healthier, more productive lives.
