I needed help feeding my family

Hi, I’m Mary Molina, the mother of LOLA SNACKS. My family went through a tough time and we were on food assistance.
With 4 kids and a husband to feed, I had
to improvise and grabbed what I had on hand and made simple energy bars my children could eat because of allergies, but were able to satisfy my husband's hunger. As I started packing the snack bars in lunch bags for my family, more
and more people reached out to me to say they loved the bars and wanted to buy them. Although I didn’t realize it at the
time, that became the official start of
LOLA SNACKS. I named the snack bars Lola after our daughter who is allergic to soy- an ingredient in most of the snack on the market. 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.

My kids are my inspiration and my drive

It was tough to shield our children from the financial struggles we were going through. My husband and I sacrificed everything we could to feed our family, but it was more than we could handle at the time. There were nights I would lie awake at night questioning how we were going to make it through the next day. As a mom, it was all a nightmare. I felt like I was letting my family down because I couldn’t fully provide for them on my own. Fortunately, I didn’t go through it alone. If it wasn’t for the incredible support of the community, our children would have gone to bed hungry. Day after day, neighbors, strangers and friends left groceries and gift cards on our doorstep. Those donations and acts of kindness gave my family hope, something we desperately needed at the time.


Everybody needs a little goodness

I’ve been committed to giving back to anti-hunger organizations. LOLA SNACKS has donated more than 100,000 snack bars to the Westchester Food Bank. Within the past two years, I have donated more than 50,000 snack bars to the Dorothy Day house in Connecticut, a shelter that provides hot meals for the hungry. I’ve given more than 25,000 bars to backpack programs for children in need, hoping the snack will give them the nutrients and health benefits they need to feel their best.
