Celebrate National Gluten-Free Day with Partake

January 13th is National Gluten-Free Day! To celebrate, we’re highlighting Partake and its fantastic line of gluten-free snacks. Denise Woodard founded Partake in 2016 as a mom who wanted to create snacks that her daughter, Vivienne (Vivi), could safely enjoy without worrying about her food allergies. Let’s take a look at why Partake is such an important part of the allergy-friendly snack industry and how it is giving back to the community.

Denise Woodard and ViviPartake’s Inspiring Story

Denise founded Partake after her daughter was diagnosed with several food allergies after her first birthday. Denise sought safe and delicious snacks that Vivi could enjoy, but her shopping trips came up short. So she decided to leave her corporate career and start Partake—a line of gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, allergy-friendly cookies and baking mixes. You can learn more about Denise and Vivi’s story at partakefoods.com.

Partake’s Products

Partake’s delicious and nutritious snacks come in a variety of tasty flavors like Chocolate Chip and Carrot Cake. All of the ingredients used to make Partake’s products are carefully sourced and scrutinized to ensure that they meet the highest standards for allergen safety. Plus, all the products are vegan, non-GMO, free of the top nine allergens, and made with clean ingredients like cassava flour and aquafaba (the liquid from cooked garbanzo beans). Partake’s cookies are great for the workplace, but if you’re looking for something sweet at home, try the delicious baking mixes for cakes and brownies. What’s more, these treats are indulgent enough that even those without food allergies or dietary restrictions will love them!

Giving Back

Partake is passionate about helping families living with food allergies as well as lifting up Black voices within the food & beverage industry. That’s why it donates a portion of proceeds to support food-insecure families living with food allergies. Additionally, Denise has founded the Black Futures in Food & Beverage fellowship program in partnership with other leading food & beverage companies and several historically Black colleges and universities. The program provides mentorship opportunities to Black college students interested in pursuing careers in the industry and provides access to internships at these partner companies.
