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.
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.
