I love companies that support the military and StarKist® is one of them. They’ve provided items for care packages as well as donated thousands of dollars worth of product through their Tuna for Soldiers program. They have been a strong supporter of our troops for many years and is also a proud partner of Wounded Warrior Project® and the Believe in Heroes Campaign.


Recently, they have pledged $100,000 in support of Wounded Warrior Project® and its mission. With the launch of their new Outdoors Tuna Creations® Pouch, what a better way to say “thank you” and rally support. The new tuna packaging is camo-inspired, convenient, and a healthy choice for services members and spouses alike.

Plus StarKist Charlie always gets me nostalgic.

Look how cute he is.


These new pouches come in two flavors, Lemon Pepper and Sweet & Spicy Tuna. StarKist® Outdoors Tuna Creations are available at Wal-Mart and grocery stores nationwide but only through October 2015.


Here are some ways these tuna packages are great for Military Spouses AND Service Members.

For the Spouse

-Convenient: makes for a quick and easy snack or meal addition, there’s little to no prep.

Other tried and true care packages tips

  • Personalize the care package. Include photos, drawings, projects, handwritten notes. These will make a lasting impression for your service member.
  • Buy in bulk. Purchasing items in bulk and then splitting them between multiple care packages will save you time and money in the long run.
  • Check the expiration date. If you are going to send perishables, make sure you factor in shipping time because it may takes months for your service member to receive the care package. (This is why StarKist® Outdoor Tuna Creations is great for care packages because they keep for so long!)
