SAN DIEGO, CA, June 09, 2022 – Gourmet food sauce and dressing maker, Hungry Squirrel, LLC ("Hungry Squirrel") announced that it is growing its North American grocery and retail expansion efforts by aligning with U.S. wholesale food distributor, KeHE. Hungry Squirrel also became a member of a select group of companies to join the prestigious KeHE elevate™ program.

ABOUT HUNGRY SQUIRREL, LLC
Bridging the gap between taste and nutrition, the Hungry Squirrel full line of sauces fits almost any diet. Entrepreneur, and owner of the GRG restaurant group, Sandra DiCicco, developed the original Hungry Squirrel recipes to give her son a better life. Sandra's son suffers from Type- 1 diabetes, and Sandra herself has Type- 2. Diabetes is a condition that affects over 34 million Americans. Due to this disease, Sandra and her son adhere to dietary restrictions like all other diabetics. Such restrictions limit many from enjoying certain foods.
Working with renowned food scientists, DiCicco combined family-inspired recipes, creating the Hungry Squirrel brand and product line without all the unhealthy additives common in name brand sauces. Hungry Squirrel's award-winning, all-natural sauces and dressings are keto-friendly, low-calorie, gluten-free, and reduced sugar options.
