The premise is simple. We’re a greeting card company that’s all about giving back. For every greeting and holiday card we sell, the cash equivalent of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is donated to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and national organizations that feed the hungry. 

With your help we can significantly expand the reach of our one card = one sandwich mission and help feed more people in need.

The Facts

According to Feeding America, 1 in 7 Americans does not have access to enough food.

According to the USDA, 17 million children are living in food-insecure households and over 50 million Americans don't have dependable, consistent access to enough food due to limited money and resources.

Since January 2013, Food for Thoughts Cards has happily donated the cash equivalent of 28,641 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, and other organizations across the country that feed the hungry.

Our Story

"Each week, I pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to give to a person in need when I commute from New Jersey to Penn Station, headed to New York University where I teach a course in occupational therapy. I've been giving sandwiches to the homeless and hungry for years, and, in 2013, I was inspired to turn this simple act of kindness into Food For Thoughts Cards." - Connie Charney, Founder

Our Mission

Food for Thoughts Cards exists to spread good wishes and good will. With each card, you’re doing more than sending a greeting. You’re sending a sandwich to someone in need. Why? Because we believe that no good deed should stand alone. We believe that a card is nice, but in today’s world, where giving back is as easy as sealing an envelope, nice isn’t good enough. We believe that sending a greeting card and fighting hunger can go hand-in-hand. A stamp. A smile. A sandwich.

Our Cards

A beautiful homage to the classic sandwich that started this whole journey, every card in our line features a silhouette of a slice of bread, an idea Connie initially sketched at her kitchen table. The “crust” frames each of the original card designs that are created by the brand’s talented graphic artist, Clementine Swan. Even the color palette we use is a subtle nod to the almighty PB&J.

Beyond their good looks, there’s even a deep, philosophical component that connects the cards to the sandwich. "A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is one of the most delicious creations ever made. It’s a mixture of two unique things, coming together to form something pretty amazing," Connie shared. "That’s what Food for Thoughts Cards is for me; a blending of passions – for greeting cards and giving back. And yes, for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches."

We have over 20 cards in total now, 13 everyday designs (birthday, anniversary, thank you, thinking of you, celebrating you, congratulations, and new address) and 10 for holiday. They are available on our site and in retail stores across the US.

Please help us continue to our mission. Thank you, Connie
