The Victory Cheese Box program is launching across the northeast right now!

Victory Cheese is a movement to help sustain America’s artisan cheesemakers by uniting dairy farmers, cheesemakers, chefs, cheesemongers, and YOU – the cheese-loving public during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Each week chefs, mongers, and cheesemakers across the country will create and promote various Victory Cheese Boxes – all unique to each provider and all designed sell more delicious local cheese – in the end helping to sustain our makers who have otherwise faced sales losses of 30-80% due to the impacts of COVID-19.

Box creators will offer a range of cheeses and creative boxes – so keep an eye out for who is offering what! It’s a wonderful way to support your local makers! In addition, each of these boxes will give 10% to cheese and/or food organizations that their owners are getting behind – places that also need support at this time. Every one of the options below is just drool-worthy – and we have more coming soon!! If you’d like to create a box – please go here to learn more:  www.victorycheese.com/sell

Just look for the Victory Cheese logo when you shop!!
