We couldn’t be more energized by this partnership”, said Leeatt Rothschild, Founder and CEO of Packed with Purpose.
ASHF will fully manage the entire post-production process, including the hand-packing, sealing, labeling, and quality control measures necessary to guarantee that the exceptional quality of each item is met.

These jobs allow them to take pride in a job well done,” said Marshall Galbreath, Executive Chef and Food Service Director at ASHF. Galbreath, a former Army veteran and one-time resident of ASHF, understands firsthand that “where these individuals were yesterday is not where they have to be tomorrow. Partnerships like Packed with Purpose help them continue on their path forward.”
“I am humbled and heartened that through this collaboration the PwP Treats line is on track to provide 3200 hours of employment to ASHF residents this holiday season.” continued Rothschild. “We fully expect to amplify that impact two-fold in 2024.”
