The more we can do to help others and the more we share with those around, the more positive and bright all of our lives will be.
When Kristen Doyle first started talking about food online the word “blog” was not widely known. She was a trailblazer on the food blog scene and a decade later has quite a following at her Dine & Dish blog. She is a friend of Cabot always experimenting with Cabot cheddar and dairy products.
Beyond her blogging career, Kristen also volunteers at the Kansas City Community Kitchen. The kitchen is open to anybody in need of a meal and recently gained attention when they switched to a restaurant style seating and serving system.
Kristen says volunteering there has opened her eyes to the number of people in need of help within her own community. The kitchen averages 350 people coming in daily looking for a meal. Kristen takes on any task that needed no matter how big or small.
“It brings perspective to my life,” said Kristen. “When you interact with people who don’t know where their next meal is going to come, that is life altering.”
It has also made her more passionate about the topic of food waste. The food blogging community can be wasteful when it comes to food and Kristen has committed to eating or donating anything she makes for her blog.
Kristen and her husband Nick have busy lives chasing their four young children around, but she has remained committed to her volunteer service.
“The more we can do to help others and the more we share with those around, the more positive and bright all of our lives will be,” said Kristen.
In her spare time, Kristen loves to travel and see the country. Her husband Nick, an avid runner and youth sports coach, will be joining her on the cruise.
