A loan of $5,000 helped a female entrepreneur and local foodie purchase equipment needed to open a farm fresh café and grocery.


Natasha's story

For the past 18 years I have lived on the North Oregon Coast serving others in restaurants and cafes, raising produce, farm animals and my son. I have always loved creating bountiful meals for my family and community from my gardens. When I was farming I was always passionate about opening people up to new experiences around food and inspiring them to try new and interesting things from the farm. Bowl is my chance to bring these things together in collaboration with local farmers, to provide delicious healthy meals with local ingredients and to offer an outlet for the local community to have access to more of the farm fresh bounty our local region has to offer. There is nothing better than preparing a meal that nourishes the body, helps build community and inspires someone to do the same for their loved ones. I look forward to helping to make the connection between folks and the farmers a tighter one.
