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 software 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.
Whether you're an outfitter looking to streamline menu planning for trips, a summer camp aiming to simplify your kitchen, a caterer that wants to lean on the power of software, or an event coordinator aiming to reduce food waste, Wholesum can help!
