Welcome to School Marm Treats! I'm Michelle. I'm a teacher and a plant-based chef. School Marm Treats is a company committed to taking the confusion out of what is actually good for you, while providing a delicious, plant-based, Gluten-free, low-sugar, organic treat line and food education.
What is food education? A food educator helps you sift through all the confusing information about food. Eight out of 10 survey respondents said they are confused by all the conflicting information about what food to eat and what food to avoid. Meanwhile, only one in 10 Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables, 90% don't like to cook, 2/3rd's of all Americans are overweight or obese, and one out of every two Americans has a chronic disease.
Yikes! The food industry thrives on your confusion and your busyness. The person in charge of the food pyramid, Louis Light, wrote a book about how corrupt the process was. You are supposed to be confused. Let School Marm Treats help you feel better by reconnecting to cooking and learning about your food.
School Marm Treats originated with these pictures. The black and white photo is a great grandmother of mine who was an actual school marm on the frontier. I found it one day while going through a box of old photos. I felt a particular affinity for this distant relative as a 20 year veteran of the teaching profession, myself. Looking at her I dreamed up the School Marm Treat line. The next photo is the logo for the company. We tried many renditions as we tried to craft an image. The apple for the teacher, the sun for warmth, care and growth, the design is meant to look like an old fashioned fruit label. "Eat your Homework" was meant to be a fun way to incorporate the idea of food education with amazing food! The color picture represents my business partners: my kids! Each of them plays a role in the company and is indispensable to my existence.
