Plant Joy!

Y'all, this year has been a whirlwind in so many ways! With the great difficulties 2020 has posed, we are incredibly grateful and blissed out to announced that our founder and executive chef, Julia Simon, and our Fulfillment Manager, Erik Berns, are opening a brick-and-mortar!

Plant Joy will be located in the Gama Goat building of Camp North End, moving into the final food stall there with a slated opening of early November. Although sharing many of the Nourish principles and ingredient guidelines (we will not be 100% gluten-free but we almost everything will have a gluten-free option), this will be its very own business with Sara Whittlesey (chef) and Shirley Griffin (front-of-house manager) running the day-to-day. While some of the fan-favorite Nourish Charlotte dishes may make a debut at Plant Joy, you will experience new menu items now that we are able to do more with temperatures and textures beyond what can be accomplished with delivered meals. Expect rich, bright flavors and colors that highlight nature’s bounty in and near the Charlotte region. 

“The phrase ‘plant joy’ has been a personal mantra of mine this year as both an action and a direction.” - Chef Julia

“It’s a reminder to make joy happen now, to plan for it in the future and to return to the earth for our most favorite meals. At Plant Joy, we hope to honor plants and all they offer both in terms of culinary creations and karmic energy."

As with every project that we are involved in, we are committed to giving back to the community, to sustainable and low-waste food practices, and to sourcing food locally and ethically. We will bring our low-to-no-waste ideology to Plant Joy and continue to support several nonprofit organizations including our partnership with Feed the Movement. Plant Joy will also source from a variety of local farms through Freshlist, including Bell’s Best Berries, Boy and Girl Farm, and the farm network operated under the Charlotte Herbal Accessibility Project.

To say we are excited would be an understatement! We have been dreaming of this day for a long time and we can't wait to have the opportunity to share our love with you, in the form of more nourishing food. 

Follow Plant Joy on Facebook or Instagram for updates and sneak peeks. We will see you in November!

Indigenous Peoples' Day is a counter-celebration meant to recognize the contributions of Native Americans instead of what critics call the violent history of colonization.
