The Story of Food For The Sole

If there is anything more rewarding than opening your own business, it’s creating that business with your son.

Henry was the original inspiration for Food For The Sole, beginning when he asked me to provide his resupply for him and his hiking partner on the John Muir Trail. He has always been my most enthusiastic supporter, and I his.

In creating Food For The Sole, that support quickly turned into assistance, and then a partnership was born. At the root, our philosophy is simple; make the best tasting and most healthy portable foods for people headed out on adventures. All the remarkable places people can now enjoy these meals inspires and informs what we make, and how we make it.

Our mission is to elevate the adventure meals market. We do this by making foods that taste amazing, using only carefully selected ingredients with healthy meal choices as our product line-up. It’s our total privilege and a joy to collaborate and communicate the vision of Food for the Sole, by joining as mother and son to make you the best adventure-ready foods on earth.
