Our Story

Culinary-Care_About-Us-Photo-2In 2006, our Founder, Courtney White, lost her father to lung cancer. During this tumultuous time, she had friends, neighbors and loved ones that brought her family meals every night for two months straight. These meals not only gave them the physical strength to get through the day, but they gave her family hope and one less thing to worry about. Today, this is what we bring to families facing cancer.
