A loan helped me to buy a food truck and provide more people with healthy, delicious bowl food.

Katelin's story

I was born to serve and nourish people. I grew up in my dad's ice cream stores and famly-owned restaurants and the food industry is just in my DNA. But I also grew up with a lot of issues surrounding food thanks to the diet culture forced on young women. I spent years yo-yo dieting, following fads, hating my body and hating myself for loving food. After a LOT of self work I overcame my eating disorders and I knew I had the potential not only to share delicious food with the world, but to also promote intuitive eating and body positivity. There doesn't have to be a choice between "bad" and "good" food. You should be able to go to a brewery or social event and have access to something other than deep fried fast food. My dad was a small business owner and I grew up in his ice cream stores. When he passed away in 2018 I knew it was time to make my dream of owning a food business a reality, and that I could be successful thanks to all the years of learning from him leading by example. I'm passionate about food, about nourishing people and about supporting healthy body images and self love.
