Our Story

After changing her diet through the Whole30 Challenge in 2014, Model Meals’ co-founder Danika Brysha felt very strongly that nourishing food could change the world. She started cooking and delivering meals around NYC from her studio apartment, digging herself into debt and eventually moving into her parents’ garage in Southern California to get her feet back on the ground.

In 2015, Danika teamed up with college friend, Camille May, to formally launch Model Meals in Santa Ana, CA, where they organically grew their business to what it is today.

Danika and Camille have both experienced how hard it can be to prioritize eating healthy against the backdrop of a food system that makes it inconvenient, and confusing. After experiencing the transformative effects food had on their lives, they knew that if they could make eating this way convenient and delicious, they could help to create a happier and healthier world.

Our mission with Model Meals has always been to create happier, healthier people, and we believe this starts with what we feed ourselves. Whether this is your first meal, or your hundredth, we are so grateful that you are here.
