As the founders, our role is to facilitate all the amazing people in the feedfeed community connecting and inspiring each other on a daily basis. To that end we curate the content shared by home cooks, chefs, and bloggers into easily digestible and inspiring categories that reflect trends from kitchens around the world. We have also recently introduced dozens of community editors who help to curate categories in their areas of expertise as well as add commentary.
feedfeed has also grown to be a place where food producers & suppliers, big and small, can get the profound respect and recognition they deserve for growing and harvesting food that is safe, nourishing, and sustainable.
Since moving out of NYC to a small coastal farming and fishing community on Eastern Long Island, we have been cooking and eating local, seasonal food almost exclusively. Julie is constantly seeking inspiration for what to make with what we have on hand, and often wondered what other like-minded people with the same ingredients were making at that moment; both in our local area and around the world.
We began looking to social networks for inspiration from other cooks, and made some great connections, but found that a lot of great content was disorganized and difficult to sort through. We decided to form feedfeed, a platform to help curate and connect the cooking inspiration, recipes and people we were finding on Instagram and other networks. We wanted to provide a place that could be a source of inspiration for the average cook, searchable by ingredient, cooking style, or meal type; but which was also a living and breathing community, providing a lens into kitchens around the world, changing with the seasons, and hopefully inspiring people to cook more and to use more local and seasonal products. A year later, we have been fortunate to meet thousands of people in the feedfeed community, and what started as social media conversations about cooking have transitioned into "real world" friendships
Julie is an avid cook, feeding her family of 5 with local and seasonal food every day. Julie's history includes a background in journalism, a long career working at digital agencies, as well as a culinary school degree from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. Dan's background includes a career as a physician in Diagnostic Imaging, with interests in health and wellness, technology, social media, and creative pursuits including photography.
Both Julie and Dan are devoted to food, both from the vantage point of sustainable growing practices, as well as what to do with it once it is in your home. They are enamored with their local farms, and derive fulfillment from the ability to grow and harvest the food they eat from these farms, their garden at home, as well as their local CSF (Community Supported Fishery) Dock To Dish. Julie also serves on the advisory boards of both Quail Hill Farm and Amber Waves Farm.

One of the main reasons we started feedfeed was to connect with others who also cook with local, seasonal & sustainable foods. Eating locally and seasonally is our personal passion and these organizations are pivotal in making that possible. Our small contribution to supporting the good food movement is encouraging and inspiring people to cook more in general.
feedfeed can provide your organization with a Partner feed / home where your community can share and inspire each other by posting images of what they cook / bake with your products / produce. Simultaneously, this page serves as a portal between your organization and your community. feedfeed also helps mobilize your community and helps your organization promote itself on social media.
