From Carol R. - Atascadero, Vendor "I am a vendor who sells one product through The Wellness Kitchen. Without a doubt, The Wellness Kitchen is, by far, one of the most (perhaps only) nutritionally aware kitchens I have ever encountered. All of you who work or volunteer there are caring individuals who fully promote The Wellness Kitchen's goal of a loving, caring environment, while providing nutritious food with love and care. Each time I walk through your doors, I truly feel the warmth of each of you reach out to me. Your loving attitudes somehow bless the entire place with warmth and healing. Your educational outreach is an outstanding program. You are making a huge difference in our community...person by person. Thank you for being there for all of us...be we in need of a wonderful, nourishing meal or in need of healing information."
From one of our newest fans After being couch-ridden for 3 days following chemotherapy, they called in to tell us that she wasn't able to move and wouldn't be able to pick up her Wellness Foods order that week. Our staff told her not to worry about the foods, we would bring her some Rebuilding Bone Broth instead. Within 3 sips of broth, she says she was off the couch. By the time she finished the quart, she had her energy back and felt whole again!
