We remember our first college care packages, with each item wrapped and packed as only a mom does. These packages mean so much when you’re away from home for the first time. Students have a lot on their plates during their first semester at school, as they learn to manage their studies, social calendar, and sleep. A great theme for a care package can be items that encourage your student to take good care of his or her health (and make it easier for them to do so).



You asked! Is drinking water with your meals bad for digestion? In short . . . no. Drinking water in moderate amounts with your meals shouldn’t affect your digestion in a negative way. In fact, drinking water is important for healthy digestion, so avoiding it can actually have a negative effect. Here’s a little more explanation.


While you don’t have control over many of the factors that cause your stress levels to rise, your reactions and how you deal with those situations (which you do have control over) ultimately determines your stress level. Eating the right foods at the right times, exercising regularly, knowing your limits (i.e. when to say no), and practicing breathing techniques are all ways to help yourself de-stress at the office on a regular basis. Here are 6 ways to help you stress less…


An apple with peanut butter or a bowl of cereal will always be classic and satisfying after school snacks, but we’ve got a whole new creative and delicious group of snack ideas for you to try this school year. These are snacks the entire family will love to nosh — and they’re great for between-meal weekend eats, too. Dig in!


We know that the same old sandwich for lunch can get a bit, well, BORING! If you’re feeling like you need a reprieve from your usual sammy, these ideas might be just what your brown bag needs. They combine fresh flavors and a combination of textures to keep your taste buds interested. Plus, they’re all under 400 calories and nutritionally balanced to give you energy to power through your afternoon.



One of our favorite things about canned tuna is that there are numerous varieties that offer different qualities in terms of taste, texture, and price. Our answer below includes the primary differences between the most common varieties: white albacore and light (both solid and chunk), as well as their best uses and any differences in their nutritional values.


A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
