I am Penny, the soul behind Eco Eats! I have over ten years experience creating and implementing ecological, sustainable and cultural educational experiences and events.
Over time, I became passionate about reducing food waste and sharing healthy bites that are tasty and provide energy for better concentration and overall health and well being – how can we save the world if we aren’t healthy ourselves?!
I regularly catered for events in my workplace after becoming frustrated at the waste produced from deliveries and the lack of variety in catering options. I have catered for many events for up to 150 people with such themes as Raw, Vegan, Native and Seasonal. I just love a good themed event!
I strongly believe that food is the way to people’s hearts, and I take great joy in making you happy with yummy, healthy, thoughtful food!
