Here is a kavannah that you can share with the Mishloach Manot:

On this holiday of Purim, we celebrate by sharing food, these Mishloach Manot, nourishing both body and soul.  We are reminded that we cannot rejoice and celebrate unless we make it possible for those less fortunate to also join in the festivities.  These Fair Trade treats were grown by farmers who were paid a livable wage, had a safe working environment, and were made without child labor.  May I experience the sweet flavor of this gift as a hint of the justice that birthed it.
