Jeremy Cooley’s story

When his dad was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, Jeremy turned to food to help extend his life. After speaking to many doctors, dieticians, and health coaches, he was left asking himself, “How is it possible Dad wasn’t being prescribed food, the fuel he needs to get through his treatment?!”

After his dad’s passing, Jeremy found his mission in life: provide access and affordability to nutrition education and healthy food for all!
