I am Gerry.

I am a chef. Not just any chef though. 

A passion chef.

After spending a lifetime in the industry, working with the best and for the best, my heart was awakened to the reality of food insecurities among my neighbors, community, and country.

I believe we can change that.

I believe we can end food insecurity together.
— Chef Gerry, Founder of Josephine's Pantry

My babushka (polish for 'grandma') Josephine had nothing. She worked her whole life, even when her husband passed away, just so she could bless her grandchildren with a few coins to go grab a small treat at the local corner store. It wasn't until she died that I learned just how hard she worked just to help those around her.

And she did it all with a smile and twinkle in her eye.

Josephine's Pantry was started to end food insecurities. Every bag, jar, or bulk order of my custom spice blends helps end food insecurities in your own backyard. We give 100% of our profits to local, community-based organizations that are helping those who have no idea where their next meal is coming from.

And there's more of them in your community than you think.

So, help us end food insecurity for children, elderly, veterans, refugees, homeless, less fortunate, and the people in your community.

Make my babushka proud. Let's do this together.

- Gerry
