Our Team

Jennifer Piette

Jennifer Piette
CEO & Founder

After a 25-year career as a screenwriter in Europe – where people have a very different relationship to food – Jennifer returned to the U.S. and founded a farm-to-table home delivery service in 2010, inspiring 1000s of SoCal residents to get back into their kitchens with amazing ingredients, and back around the table with their loved ones, creating lasting memories and building their health at the same time. In 2013, the company became a certified B Corp, to measure and increase its social and environmental impact. In 2019, Jennifer renamed her company Narrative Food, since story-telling has always been central to everything she does, whether in images or with food. During the pandemic, we were very proud to serve as front line workers -- supporting our growers and suppliers alike during this challenging time. However, post pandemic the landscape changed, so in 2022, Narrative Food pivoted its activity into corporate gifting, broadening its reach by shipping curated gifts nationwide, and joining 1% for the Planet, to further expand its impact. Jennifer now lives on a rural island, in a small community in Maine. Every gift we curate gives back.

After a 30 year career managing food service for large college campuses, with a focus on sourcing local foods, we are delighted to have Norman's advice and support on all business affairs questions. Norman's single greatest passion has always been connecting people (customers, colleagues, clients, etc. ) with the source of their food. He has always felt that regenerative agriculture and cooking at home (for the most part) is a key element to our sustaining health in the soil and our bodies.
