How ‘Food Heaven’ Founders Wendy Lopez, Jessica Jones Look at Healthy Living Through an ‘Inclusive Lens’

Meet registered dietitians Wendy Lopez and Jessica Jones, co-founders of the multimedia platform Food Heaven, a one-stop-shop for inclusive and accessible wellness.

“We didn’t see ourselves represented in nutrition and wellness and wanted to create an inclusive community that celebrated all people,” Lopez and Jones told WrapWomen.

What started out as a YouTube channel with just a couple of viewers (specifically Lopez and Jones’ parents) has morphed into an amazing YouTube community with a following of over 40,000 subscribers. They also offer unique recipes and friendly blog articles on their website.
