As hate crimes against Asian-Americans continue to make a mark on this country, taking action is more important than ever. While there are plenty of ways to donate, including Stop AAPI Hate, supporting these businesses is another way to show support.
We rounded up several AAPI food companies that also target healthy eating and lifestyle habits, too. From healthier ramen to a chocolate chip cookie that everyone seems to love, check out these goodies that will actually help you do good, too.
