Katie, Wayne, and Melissa met in business school at George Washington University. We became like family through all the class projects, study abroad programs, and vacations. And probably not surprising, food was central to every occasion. When Katie introduced little Thomas to our family in 2012, our conversations grew to include the tastes and textures of baby food. Our business school brains kicked in, and we realized we could meet a real need in our DC/Northern Virginia community for fresh and healthy baby and toddler food. And The Kid and the Kale was born.
