"THERE IS BEAUTY IN FOOD- FROM THE AESTHETIC, TO IT'S NUTRITIONAL AND MEDICINAL POWER, TO THE WAY IT CAN MAKE SOMEONE FEEL GOOD BY  BRINGING PEOPLE CLOSER TOGETHER." 

 

WHATS IN THE NAME?

The Swahili word "Poa" describes your general well being as being in a good mood or "feeling cool". It's a response most often used when someone says "Mambo" or "How are you doing?".  The answer is Poa! "Im cool!"   The name is inspired by our 2014 mom + son volunteer trip to Tanzania, Africa.  The days revolved around mealtimes, where curiosity was encouraged and cultural barriers did not exist. Each meal brought about a new appreciation for life, and a new, humbling experience based around the act of procuring, preparing and sharing food. I wanted to capture that feeling and bring a bit of it home with me.
