TOGETHER WE CAN…
One Million lunches for hungry children. Because of the hard work and gratitude of Initial Outfitters consultants and customers, we have funded one million lunches for impoverished children around the world. Now we are excited to announce a broader initiative we call “IO Loves” that will feed and educate impoverished and at-risk kids here in the U.S. as well as Central America and India.
IO Loves will be funded by donating all the profits from the sale of embroidered lunchboxes as well as our new personalized backpacks. Lunchbox profits are currently being donated to two charities – Charlie’s Lunch Ministries and their international feeding programs as well as Blessings in a Backpack and their weekend lunch program for hungry children here in America.
Profits from our personalized backpacks go to support education initiatives to help break the cycle of poverty. We are partnering with Our House, Helping Honduras Kids and the Berea School and their school mentoring, tutoring, and character development programs for poor and at-risk children. We will continue to fund international projects at Christian schools that work with needy children.
We are proud to partner with organizations that share our vision
and mission to feed and educate children.

Make a Living that Makes a Difference
At Initial Outfitters we make a living that makes a difference. Our philanthropy is at the heart of everything we do here and we welcome you to join us in this effort. From helping pack lunches for Blessings in a Backpack programs to creating their own Lunchbox and Backpack Love projects, our consultants are involved in supporting the IO Loves mission in many ways.
Not to mention they are helping children with each and every Lunchbox and Backpack sale. How do we top one million lunches? We do it by changing the course of a child’s life, and then we do it again and again. At Initial Outfitters, it has been a lot of fun getting to this point, and it is exciting to think about where this will go next! We hope that you join us, and make your dreams come true along with us!
Over the years we traveled the world on missions trips to feed, educate, and minister to children living in absolute poverty. Seeing the need first hand, our vision for Initial Outfitters has always been to partner with our consultants, customers, and employees to lift these kids up and provide hope. And wow have you delivered. Through your generous support, we’ve provided over 1 million lunches and have funded educational programs around the world. Food and education, wrapped in a loving and supportive environment, this gives these kids an opportunity for a better future. These tenants would become pillars of the IO Loves mission to make a difference in the lives of children living in poverty.
