An End of 2023 Note from Denise Woodard, Founder & CEO of Partake Foods


Happy Holidays, Partake Fam! We’ve had quite a year together, and I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank you!” for your support in our mission of radical inclusivity.

We started the year earning our B Corp Certification and announcing a partnership with Ben & Jerry’s and another with Marvel’s Avengers. We shared our limited edition Valentine’s Day Crunchy Mini Cookie Snack Packs and, in the spring, introduced the only gluten-free, vegan Classic Graham Squares available. 

We ended the summer launching an allergy-friendly Soft Baked Chocolate Chip cookie with DoubleTree by Hilton. Shortly after, we reintroduced our best-selling Soft Baked Pumpkin Spice cookies and our holiday flavors—Crunchy Holiday Sprinkle and Soft Baked Chocolate Peppermint. 

On top of all the fantastic product news, including increasing our footprint to 14,000 retail stores and expanding at airports and offices across the country, we have worked with wonderful 501c3 organizations—Hashtag Lunchbag, Eat. Learn. Play., Headcount, The Birthday Party Project and Camp Blue Spruce in addition to hundreds of small donations across the country to bring safe-to-share snacking to folks across the country. Black Futures Fellowship became a 501c3 as well, and we are currently supporting our 3rd cohort of HBCU fellows in finding Summer 2024 paid internships. 

We have so much to celebrate—all because of you! We have more to come in 2024, and we can’t wait to share our news and 2023 impact by the numbers in January. Until then, we are so grateful for your support and are sending you best wishes for a happy holiday season and new year.

In gratitude,

Denise Woodard
Founder & CEO, Partake Foods
