ABOUT JACKIE & WHERE TO FIND
JACKIE MENDIVE : Founder / Chief Artisan
Jackie had a love for cooking, for communicating, and for helping others. Always on the go...
Majored in Journalism and Human Services, wife, friend, turned mother of five, turned entrepeneur.
Cooking at home with her mom from a young age in Argentina, experiencing recipes, and blending flavors, was part of her story.
Away from home, Jackie had a need to render her culture for her kids and the empanadas were a great excuse and a part of weekend get-togethers.
Jackie helps busy people have homestyle, healthy food at hand but starting a business had to be something greater than itself, it had to help others.
A bite of every empanada goes to fighting infant malnutrition in Argentina @ayresdeesperanza and other local charities.
And Jackie keeps going.
