Becoming a Foodie Penpal

A few weeks ago I found out about a great program called Foodie Penpals. Started by Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean about a year ago, the program creates an opportunity for people around the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. to send each other foodie-type items. I thought the idea was great and though it is a State-side program, it is still a way to share and experience culture.

This month was my first time participating and I just sent off my box which was of a Latin American theme (chocolate is from Mexico). I had such a great time looking up foods and shopping, I figured I should share so you can become a Foodie Penpal too.

If you live in the U.S., Great Britain, or Canada, you can sign up on the Foodie Penpal Form to join the foodie-sharing in November. The deadline to sign up is November 4th at 9pm EST. And definitely be sure to check out my post on October 31st on what I got in my Foodie Penpal box (lots of deliciousness).

    What a grand idea – I love it and would SO love to participate! Unfortunately, it is so utterly expensive to ship ANYthing from here (Bali) to ANYwhere in the world… for this reason alone, I’ll have to pass. But I would can’t wait to read about your foodie-gift!

      Amit, I’m so sorry for not approving this sooner. It went to spam! Silly wordpress. Feel free to live vicariously through me. I live vicariously through you all the time. 🙂

        HA!! Thanks, but I’m not sure you need to live vicariously through me.. you’ve got quite the full, adventurous, travel-filled life yourself.. even some of the armchair stories are quite fascinating too 😉
