July Foodie Penpal Reveal #foodiepenpals

Wow, it’s that time of the month again – FOODIE PENPAL’s Reveal!

Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean is the super women behind “Foodie Penpals”.

Nicole from Nicole Israel Photography sent me this awesome package of British Columbia’s (Canada) finest foods! (PS – check out her website – she takes beautiful photographs).


I only got to taste the Santa Cruz Organic Raspberry Lemonade before going on vacation so the rest awaits us when we get home. (Guest posts coming tomorrow)

I sent a package to Ashley @ Nutrition Diaries.

I am taking a little break from being a Foodie Penpal – but I hope to join this again. It’s been a fun 6 months being a foodie penpal.

Wanna Be A Foodie Penpal ?

CLICK HERE, if you want to sign up to be a FOODIE PENPAL – you don’t have to be a blogger to sign up.

Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:

-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treatsThe spending limit is $15The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
– Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!

***If you’re in the UK, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at rocksalt@thisisrocksalt.com to get involved!
