Toyo Rice donated “Kinmmemai”.
This gourmet rice boasts unparalleled nutritious value, containing 6 times more lipopolysaccharides (LPS)—a natural immune system booster that helps maintain good health and fight illnesses, and also more rich and flavorful than conventional white rice.
Our healthy and delicious bento-boxes include Kinmmemai rice to support medical workers and keep them strong!

New York City entered Phase 2 of restarting economic activity, and many cars and people have increased in the city, but there are concerns that the number of infected people will rebound as seen in other states. We will continue to work hard to make bento boxes, while observing hand washing, wearing masks, and social distancing. Please take good care of yourself and enjoy New York’s early summer!
“Let’s Support COVID-19 Fighters!” project is planned to continue to deliver bentos for about half a year with the cooperation of many member companies and the the Japanese Medical Association of America (JMSA). We will do our best to serve healthcare workers as many delicious lunches as possible during this time!
