We want to showcase local talent, to give chefs and entertainers a place to show off their talents surrounded by supportive community and shared infrastructure. We are creating a meeting place for people who are interested in creating and eating great food, building community and celebrating diversity.


Devon and Kirsty met on the fundraising committee of their children's preschool, five years ago.  They spent several years working together on event planning and fundraising events.  They were members of the Spaceworks Business Cohort together in 2019.  They share a love of good food and helping their community.






Thanks to Jonathan Armstrong for the head shots!
