Yego (yay-go) Foods is the official brand of The Pack Shack’s delicious, healthy, easy-to-prepare meals. “Yego” is the word for “Yes!” in the local language of Rwanda and has sentimental value to The Pack Shack as a number of our teammates and their families lived in Rwanda for several years among the wonderful people of the Land of a Thousand Hills.
Whenever you see the Yego Foods logo, you can be sure to enjoy a meal that delights the palette and nourishes the body! Say Yego!
The negative health effects of food insecurity disproportionately affect our neighbors living at lower income levels, often resulting in under nutrition and increased rates of chronic disease and obesity.
We’re working to ensure that our neighbors have food that will nourish and strengthen them. We create delicious, nutritious meals that are easy to prepare, accessible, and affordable.
We’re grateful for the expert culinary, nutrition, and regulatory assistance of Tyson Foods in developing our meals. Every one of our delicious recipes provides at least 10 grams of protein per serving and includes 19 essential vitamins and minerals.
DIGNITY IN PACKAGING
We believe that people receiving our meals are worthy of dignity and respect, so we take great care in designing packaging that would stand out on any store shelf.
Our packaging reflects the extraordinary quality of the meal and includes USDA tested and approved messaging to reinforce nutrition education and programs designed to encourage healthy eating and help people who receive food assistance. Additionally, our cooking instructions are presented visually and in English and Spanish.

WHAT NONPROFITS ARE SAYING
“The CitySquare Food Pantry distributes more than two million pounds of nutritious food to families in need every year. Thanks in part to The Pack Shack’s collaboration with CitySquare, we are battling food insecurity in Dallas more effectively than ever. Their organization empowers local organizations to produce healthy products on a mass scale while building a sense of community through service, advocacy and friendship. This is at the core of CitySquare’s mission and we’re grateful for The Pack Shack’s partnership in keeping our neighbors fed and our community strong.” – CitySquare, Dallas TX
“The Pack Shack has been a great partner “in doing good together” over the years. We primarily distribute the Cheesy Rice & Vegetable meals in rural communities in the US. It is a big hit in feeding programs, backpack initiatives and groceries going to families in need. The meals are convenient, tasty and healthy. Many of the groups we distribute through consistently request them.” – Convoy of Hope, Springfield MO
