We love to eat, so food is often on our minds. From two very different worlds - outfitting camping trips and childhood nutrition - we found a common link: planning meals for large and varied groups is difficult. It takes time to plan, shop for, and prepare those meals, and wasted food is not only a drain on the bank account, it also takes a toll on the systems that grow, process, supply, and dispose of it.
Co-founders John and Grace knew they could do better than a clunky excel spreadsheet, and the process of development began. Keeping an eye on technology that made the math behind WHOLESUM Food Calculator less of a forefront tool, and more of a behind-the-scenes wizard, we have tried to design an application that makes meal planning fun and easy. With a background in sustainable food systems and small businesses, we've also incorporated functions that can help you track inventory and costs, and even print nutrition labels.
