Lids that fit the bowls you already have!
In the battle to save food and kick the plastic habit, we are all on the same side. That's why we invented our new Food Huggers flexible fit lids for bowls.
We love our prototypes! They are easy to use and fit like a dream. Each lid adapts to fit different sized bowls using our patented Food Huggers seal to keep the freshness in. If you hate single-use plastics and food waste, you’re going LOVE them. It's never been so easy to be good!
Let's start with the construction. Our patented Food Huggers seal is made of soft, FDA approved silicone. And with a tempered, shatter-resistant glass top, our Food Huggers lids are made to last. We believe in quality. It's not just plastic that's filling up our landfills, it's also cheaply made junk that breaks or doesn't work properly. We want you to be able to reuse your lids for years to come, saving your food and your money along the way.
Food waste is a major problem. It's not just the food that gets wasted, though that's bad enough. It's all the water, energy, and the impact of carbon pollution from transporting it all. And rotting food is the single largest component of municipal landfills, a huge source of methane, one of the most potent greenhouse gasses on Earth. Reducing food waste is one of our core values.
We started our little company right here on Kickstarter six years ago. Food Huggers were a big hit with the Kickstarter community, and we are always extremely grateful for your support. It was an incredible experience for us to be able to connect with more than 5,400 other people who loved food and hated to waste it. The feeling of teamwork between us set the course for our entire company.
It makes our day every time a backer or customer writes to us about their Food Huggers and how much they enjoy them. Just check out some of these comments!
And it wasn't just the public that loved Food Huggers. The press did too. We got a ton of amazing reviews. (swoon) One of our favourite quotes was this one from Oprah Magazine:
All of the kind words are a huge source of inspiration for us in doing what we do. We want to do our part in helping people to live responsibly and sustainably. We feel that the best way to do that is to come up with solutions that make it easier for everyone. Food Huggers and now Food Huggers Lids are not only easier to use than the alternatives, they're also fun to use. We think that's the way forward.
We measured hundreds of bowls during the design process to make sure that we’ve got you covered. We designed our series of four lids so that each size overlaps with the next. That means that every bowl will fit snugly into a lid.
To get specific, the smallest size lid will fit bowls from 3.75” to 5.0” (9.5-12.5cm). And the next size up will fit bowls from 4.5” to 5.75" (11.3-14.5cm). And so on. The whole set of four will fit bowls from 3.75” to 7.75” (9.5-19.4cm) which covers the entire range of the most common bowl sizes.
No more doubling up on dirty dishes. Scooping food out of a bowl and into a storage container leaves you with TWO dishes that need cleaning. One bowl can happily do both jobs. Fewer dirty dishes is also something we’re ready to celebrate.

The tooling required to make a design that combines a high-quality glass window with the soft, food-grade silicone seal is an expensive piece of equipment. And we need four of them to make the full set of Food Huggers Lids. We refuse to compromise on quality. Your contributions will allow us to tool up and order the minimum quantity of 10,000 pieces to make Food Huggers Lids a reality.
Adrienne is always thinking about what Food Huggers can do to fulfill our promise to reduce food waste and replace single-use and disposable products. Michelle designs products that look beautiful and work like a dream. Juliana, our General Manager, is always ready to build the solutions we need to get the job done! Deb and Renae treat every customer like a member of the family. Alicia helps us to make all our computers cooperate. All of us are ready to dive into the production and delivery of Food Huggers Lids and we are looking forward to meeting you all.
We have designed these lids to reflect the goals we have for own homes. Food Huggers products are reusable alternatives to plastic wrap and foil. Love your leftovers by keeping them fresh and keeping the fridge organized so you can see what you’ve got. Our products are designed to last, not designed to be replaced. That's why we offer a Lifetime Guarantee.
Our families and friends are always a huge source of support and enthusiasm. Thank you to the 5,400 enthusiastic backers who helped us get our start six years ago. Thank you also to all the partners who have worked with us and helped us to grow over the years. Thank you all.
Many hugs from all of us at Food Huggers!
Risks and challenges
Six years ago we fulfilled our promise to 5,400 Kickstarter backers to deliver Food Huggers on time and without delay. We have been learning continually since then and built a team of partners we can count on to help us produce, ship and deliver on time. We feel very confident that we will be able to deliver on time. The design has been thoroughly tested and samples made before tooling. We have every reason to expect the production to go smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
