We believe you should be able to pronounce every ingredient in your food. We believe in whole grains. We believe in putting healthier, delicious, high-quality foods on the shelves that are also affordable. Our goal is to create incredibly delicious foods that are packed full of nutritional benefits and that are available to everyone.
When Alex met Maddy, he knew her contagious energy and love for people could help change the world. Their belief that all kids should have access to a healthy, wholesome breakfast is what inspired Love Grown Foods to not just be a product on the shelves, but a company with a passion to make a true change. With Alex’s desire to start his own company, and Maddy’s background in nutrition, Pilates, and massage therapy, the couple launched Love Grown Foods in Maddy’s hometown of Aspen, Colorado. In a short matter of time, but a lot of hard work, they turned Love Grown Foods into a national brand with a big mission: improving kids’ nutrition.
In addition to offering great products (made with LOVE) in grocery stores across the country, our passion is to be a part of the bigger change that needs to happen. We are taking the time to visit classrooms (from kindergarten to high school) and educate kids on the importance of eating breakfast and fueling their bodies right. We are also working with school districts to provide them with more affordable healthy options to serve to their students. Our kids are our future, and we are passionate about giving them the right tools to live long, happy, and productive lives.
Join us on our journey as we SPREAD the LOVE!
