Our publishing program

Our books give a fresh perspective on what and how we eat through good stories, beautiful writing, and a deep appreciation of food cultures.

Our mission

“I've been involved in children's book publishing for 20 years and ‘literacy’ is a frequently used term to describe the basic knowledge of reading and writing. Literacy is the foundation of communication. Yet, this foundation is often missing in the discussion of our food ways. We believe that by gaining basic knowledge about where our food comes from, we can have a better appreciation of what we eat, make better food choices, and make a positive impact on our body, our mind, our community, and the world. After all, interest in food has no boundaries. Together, we can create and celebrate a rich, healthy, diverse, and inclusive food culture.”
