Lori Tharps, creator and host of the "My Bloody Hell" podcast, interviews Lia Ballentine about launching Yumday, the move from Hollywood to snacks, and the vision for the company.
The Virginia Foodie Podcast: Interview with Lia Ballentine
"Women-founded, BIPOC-founded, up-cycled (yes, food can be up-cycled!), gluten-free; whatever your preference of small business snack brand, you can find it in Lia Ballentine’s Yumday’s expansive selection of snacks, subscription boxes, and other curated collections."
Food Network, May 2021
“Chief Snack Officer is a life goals title, and one that Lia Ballentine never imagined for herself. She traded in a career in corporate communications to launch Yumday, a subscription snack box company that highlights women- and BIPOC-owned brands. As a Filipino-American, Ballentine sees Yumday as an opportunity to champion small businesses while also introducing people to the flavors and cuisines of different cultures.”
Food Network, April 2021
“Yumday’s owner and snack aficionado Lia Ballentine personally samples every snack that makes it into each of the curated snack boxes. Not only do each of the featured snacks achieve the deliciousness factor, but the brands — from BIPOC and women makers, as well as sustainable and mission-driven companies — also have a story behind them.”
