What is friendly fare?

At Friendly Fare, we aim to teach kids about health and wellness by promoting connection through literature and food. 


We write books that personify food to teach kids about their emotions and let people with a connection to cooking share their stories.


We inspire parents and kids to cook together using the curated recipes we've provided so the kitchen becomes the most sacred room in the house.


We partner with local businesses and farmers markets to bring communities together and teach the importance of a healthy diet and sustainability.
