Pound Ridge, NY
When Shelley Schulz’s son was diagnosed with autism at age three, she committed to doing everything she could to help. So, the former Wall Streeter met with a nutritionist who suggested the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. “Everything improved within three days when I changed my son’s diet,” Schulz says. But she couldn’t find products that met her standards. So, the determined mother decided to make his food—free of dairy, gluten and sugar—herself in her Pound Ridge, NY kitchen. “My business was started out of necessity,” she says. When Schulz’s husband was diagnosed with cancer the following year, she delved deeper into creating gluten-free, raw and vegan foods, which she introduced at farmers markets. They were quickly embraced, and by 2013, Schulz moved production of her products—including baked and raw granola, raw crackers, nuts and graham bites—to a certified gluten-free commercial facility. Today, Schulz sources many ingredients from
local farmers and seeks out the best ingredients. What she values most, though, is when customers say she’s making a difference in their health. ”My company started with meaning, and now it has meaning to other people,” she says. healinghomefoods.com
