As the CEO and founder of FEED, Lauren Bush Lauren has dedicated the last decade of her life to fighting child hunger. Not only is her business committed to fair-labor production and sustainable materials, but it’s also created a new kind of transparent charity: Each FEED bag features the number of meals or micronutrient packets that will be provided to a child in need as a result of the purchase.
Lauren shares the details of her work/life balance—running her company, caring for her two young sons, and squeezing in morning workouts—with her almost 100,000 followers on Instagram. At FEED’s holiday pop-up shops in LA, Houston, and Kansas City, she’s looking forward to meeting them in person. “I’m so excited to create an opportunity for physical interaction with customers and communities,” says Lauren. Below, she shared the nine must-have items she’s had on hand while gearing up for her busy season.
"This bag is one of my essentials as a mom, with its handy pockets for diapers, wipes, and anything else you need.”
“I make a concerted effort to not use disposable plastic bottles whenever possible, so I’m never without a reusable one.”
“I love Clarins for their amazing skincare products, especially this cleanser paired with their Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream.”
“I can’t get enough of Oatly Oat Milk. We even started offering it at the FEED Shop & Cafe.”
“I have been listening to a lot of these podcast episodes, which are always helpful when you need an inspirational boost and some honest, relatable female entrepreneur stories.”
“I am a big Outdoor Voices fan when it comes to their leggings. They’re chic and help me get the job done.”
“We make a really nice olive oil with William Sonoma, which I cook with or drizzle on food daily.”
“I love to read and recently finished this classic, which I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't read it. I also loved Meg Wolitzer's latest, The Female Persuasion.”
“This balm keeps me moisturized on the go.”
