I needed help feeding my family

Hi, I’m Mary Molina and  I created Lola Snacks during a time when my family was receiving food assistance. With 4 kids and a husband to feed, energy packed nutritious snacks were a luxury and difficult to find at the food bank. I had to improvise and I used what I had on hand to create my own simple nutritious energy snack. 

As I started packing the snack bars in lunch bags for my family, they started offered them to friends at lunch.  A few days later moms and neighbors reached out to say they loved the bars and wanted to buy them. 

My kids are my inspiration and my drive

I named the snack bars Lola after our daughter who is allergic to soy- an ingredient in most snacks. It was important for me to keep the bar as simple as possible, using only gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan ingredients packed full of goodness.  All the bar flavors are named after my children, nieces and nephews.

Everybody needs a little goodness

I received incredible support from my community, finding bags of groceries or gift cards left by my backdoor with an encouraging note.  These acts of goodness gave me hope, something I desperately needed at the time.

I have been able to give a little of that goodness back by donating [250,000] Lola Snacks to anti-hunger programs.
