What is Cheeky®?
Cheeky® creates modern tableware with a witty spirit to help end hunger. We believe that access to nutritious food is a right, not a privilege. So, for every item you buy, we give a meal through our partnership with Feeding America and No Kid Hungry.*
What does "Cheeky" mean, anyway?
Cheeky is defined as impudent or irreverent, typically in an endearing or amusing way, as in “a cheeky grin.” We chose the name Cheeky because the term (i) is delightfully British like our Founder PJ Brice and (ii) captures our exuberant attitude towards design and giving back to the community.

So, what is Cheeky helping to solve?
Cheeky strives to help put an end to hunger. According to a recent USDA report, 1 in 8 people in America — 42 million people – does not have dependable access to enough food. Yet, there is more than enough food to feed every man, woman, and child in the United States. Read more about Cheeky’s donation program here.

One meal* is equivalent to $0.10. $1 helps provide 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local food banks. Cheeky® guarantees a minimum of 1.5 million meals (monetary equivalent of $150,000) to Feeding America® from 11/01/2015 to 11/01/2016. This purchase/donation is not tax deductible for guests. Cheeky® is solely responsible for this program and donations.
For each item marked Cheeky® Kids that is purchased from 10/01/16 to 10/01/18, Cheeky Kids, LLC will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to No Kid Hungry. One meal is equivalent to $0.10. This amount is based on the individual experiences of No Kid Hungry grant recipients. This purchase/donation is not tax deductible for guests. Cheeky Kids, LLC is solely responsible for this program and donations.
How many meals does Cheeky donate
Since launching in November 2014, Cheeky has helped provide over 10 million meals!
How do you distribute meals?
Our partner Feeding America works with a network of 200 local food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs to deliver meals to those in need. Donations made by Cheeky support Feeding America’s entire mission and are not designated to a specific program or location.
How do you calculate the cost of a meal
Our partner Feeding America uses a simple methodology to calculate the cost of a meal. Drawing on average annual data from the past five years (to offset any temporary gains or declines), they divide the food (less plain water and non-food) that they receive from national donors by total expenses at the Feeding America national office. The result is the number of pounds of food they help secure on behalf of local food banks per dollar. They convert pounds per dollar into meal equivalents per dollar using a USDA ratio of 1.2 pounds per meal. Learn more at FeedingAmerica.org
Is my Cheeky purchase tax deductible?
No, your Cheeky purchase is not tax deductible. Cheeky® is solely responsible for this program and donations.
