Why AisleMine

About AisleMine

Are there any leftovers in the kitchen?

Aisle Mine was created to showcase the wonderful diverse generation stories of our wonderful culinary community we show up to co-create every single day. 

We live in a time where it’s easy to fall into a pattern of being transactional. However, through Shared humanity, connections, we are all connected, we go through the same things. Life isn’t always easy and happy it isn’t supposed to be. The struggles shape us into who we are. How we respond to struggles, and how we use resilience, compassion, and love to let others know they are okay. 

Food and beverage are ingredients we have in our everyday lives that leave us feeling nourished, connected, and abundant with ourselves and others. We want to build a mindful community that leans on food and beverage as a guide towards diversity, inclusion, and healing.
