PORTLAND PRIVATE CHEF
Gather Around Nutrition is a private chef business based in Portland, Oregon, built by holistic nutritionists. We provide farm-to-table meal prep services, postpartum meal care packages, and farm-to-table event catering. Our meal prep services specialize in working with clients on therapeutic diets who benefit from a food-as-medicine approach to their health needs, such as people undergoing chemotherapy, new mothers, our elderly community, and anyone seeking to improve their health & well-being with nutrition therapy.
With a passion for environmental sustainability, we are committed to low-waste & low-impact business practices, sourcing directly from local farmers, ranchers, and fisherfolk, and creating menus that highlight the benefits of eating with the seasons. We believe in building resiliency by supporting our local food economy here in the Pacific Northwest while denouncing the exploitation of workers and the land, which is all too common in the food industry. Our goal is to work with providers and clients who share these similar values.
An investment in your health.
Eliminate the stress of meal planning, cooking, and cleaning, and let one of our nutrition-focused personal chefs take care of it for you! We tailor our meal prep & event menus specifically to meet your dietary needs & preferences, while making sure that all of your meals contain the optimal balance of protein, carbs & healthy fats for you. As a team of nutritionists, health is always on our minds. We choose to cook exclusively with healthy unrefined oils, natural sweeteners, and food that is free of additives & preservatives.
An investment in your local farms.
By working with Gather Around Nutrition, you are also choosing to keep more of your money invested in your local food economy. We love introducing people to seasonal eating by featuring local, farm-fresh organic produce in our meals. We source our produce, meats, and seafood from local farmers, ranchers and fisherfolk who are dedicated to good, sustainable practices that contribute to a healthier environment.
An investment in sustainability.
Eating local means your food is as fresh as possible, with fruits & vegetables containing at their peak antioxidant & nutrient levels. However, eating local is also good for the environment! Each time we eat local foods, we have reduced our carbon footprint by eliminating the often resource-heavy shipping that it takes to import produce from across the globe. Additionally, we are always striving to be as low-waste and plastic-free as possible by offering all our meal preps delivered in reusable glass containers.
