Help me start 'Famtastic', a weekly dinner delivery service for working families in the Ypsi/A2 area. Coming from a working family and with my previous experience cooking for children. I have an understanding at how overwhelming and daunting it is amongst everything in the daily day to have dinners ready. The plan is, for a reasonable fee to cook Tuesdays and Fridays and deliver late afternoon, early evenings on said days. I will send out a email/message/update Monday mornings on what the menu options will be. You then can call and confirm if and which day(s) you want to order. I also can help with prep or cater your next party.

Working with food allergies and cooking vegetarian is not an issue for me as i have had lots of experience personally and professionally with these things.

For many years now ive worked every aspect of kitchens and restaurants. From dishwashing to management. Those who have worked with or for me know i always put 100% in what i do.

Just recently I was, without warning terminated from my job. So ive decided because people tend to love my cooking, rather than go to work everyday, miss my family, miss therapy/doc appointments for Fin while i run a kitchen/business for someone else. I should try my hand at starting my own business. 

I am hoping to do this to have the opportunity to work evening and during the day, be home to watch my baby grow, be able to adjust my schedule to bring my kid to therapies, surgeries and what not with no repricussions and to provide  hearty, healthy food options for my community.

The donations will initially go to covering living expenses while starting up since i have been unemployed the last few months, covering food costs, labor, renting a kitchen space a couple times a week to do the family food prep, to buy equipment for said prepping and a 'fridge and freezer to store the foods in. 

I believe between my many years of food prepping/cooking experience and cooking for families particularly kids, this can be a huge success.

Those who donate there will be a multi-tiered reward system depending on donation size. 

Thanks, Jamie 'Pops' VanEffen
