About Us

I am Donna Marie, Vision Chef of Food For The Soul. I was born and raised in Jamaica (the Caribbean–not the neighborhood in  Queens, New York) and have lived in the United States for over 30 years.

In the early 2000’s, I came across Zig Ziglar’s quote, “People often say motivation doesn’t last.  Neither does bathing–that’s why we recommend it daily” and I had an epiphany; being inspired is a practice, a habit that needs consistent nurturing.

So I began my daily practice that included reviewing an inspirational saying each morning and setting an intention for the day.  I got so much out of this that I started sharing these quotes with my friends; this took off and I was inspired to officially launch food for the soul™ at a neighborhood spot, The Broken Cup, in 2007.
