Happy American Thanksgiving!
From the entire team here at the Foodtree Treehouse, we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, American style!
If you weren’t aware, our company was founded by Americans, albeit in Vancouver, Canada. We’re often asked how we ended up here in Canada, and the truth is that Anthony has been here for a few years now. He met his wife while living in Chicago, and they moved up here to settle down and have their first child, Rafe (pictured below).
When Foodtree was in its earliest stages, our acceptance to Bootup Labs in downtown Vancouver prompted us to make the city our home base. I (Derek) relocated from Chicago earlier this year and found out much to my surprise that the Thanksgiving celebration up here happens in October! Gasp!
I think I speak for everyone when I say that our whole team is thankful for the support this town has given us, and we look forward to continuing our work on tomorrow’s food system from the belly of a town that sits at the edge of conscious eating.
To all, happy holidays!
