Five years ago (June 5th is my anniversary), I moved to Columbus after getting married and slowly began to explore this city. I wasn’t gluten-free back in 2009 and we lived in the ‘burbs. That meant a lot of Olive Garden, Applebees, Little Caesar’s and Chipotle. Ehhhh. As we made our way south, towards downtown, we realized what a good-food-loving-city Columbus really is.
Instagram allowed me to document this journey while I fell in love with Columbus’ taste in good food. Food trucks, small diners, farm to table, reallllly good alcohol. All local. It totally blew me away. Even as I became gluten-free and began to refine my diet, the Columbus restaurant scene still delivered.
So here’s my favor. For what you would spend on a really sugary drink at Starbucks, you could help me and my city. We are getting an amazing gift called The Commissary. It’s going to be a flexible space for pop-ups, meetings, and classes where food makers and farmers can experiment, create, collaborate, and share. I’m excited to be on the board for their non-profit section and am going to be able to teach food makers how to take better photos for their websites.
Okay I got distracted…so for $6, you can help back it and help them meet their goal. You’ll get a sticker. You’ll make me smile. And if you ever come to Columbus, we’ll hang out and eat all this amazing food.

I hadn’t heard of the Commissary- very cool! Thanks for sharing (I’ll share on my blog, too). :)
Hi Allie, Are is they still accepting funding? I’d love to help out.
Chloe – we are! They are! Most of the Kickstarter rewards are offered on the website http://www.thecommissarycolumbus.com/store and all of the money raised there will be used for the event space/cookbook and cake pan library/demonstration kitchen station. Thank you so much! <3
Thanks Kate! I selected the engraved spoon. Hopefully one day I’ll get the chance to visit & see it hanging on the wall. Thanks for sharing Allie, looks like a lot of fun! :)
This sounds like an amazing place to create for like minded foodies, food makers and farmers to come together! I wish I lived in the area but since Columbus is one of my overnight stays during my road trip at the end of the month I wanted to contribute. Hopefully I’ll get to enjoy a tiny taste of the great food while I’m there!
Best of luck on the reaching to full goal! It’s getting close :)
