STORY ABOUT US

Our Mission

At Folk & Knife, our mission is to connect people to their culture, their planet, and their folk through food and stories. We aim to connect people to the roots of what makes them happy and healthy, and to build a more wholesome and sustainable community around that.

Through recipes, stories, and action, we hope this blog inspires you to reconnect with your community and to give to those around the world who are facing food insecurity, so that no one goes hungry for food or for love.
