Food on the Table Blog is dedicated to make life in the grocery store, kitchen, and dining room easier for Mom. Our posts are designed to give you ideas on how to better manage time and money, including quick and easy recipes. We are supported by Food on the Table, an online service that allows you to plan your meals around the sale items in your local grocery store, and then gives you recipes and an organized grocery list based on your meal plan.
Food on the Table was founded by Manuel Rosso. Manuel used to work in the technology industry in Austin, TX and considered his job moderately stressful, but nothing compared to coming home to a frazzled wife and four hungry kids every night! Between school, soccer practice and other after school activities, planning and making dinner was the last thing to be done. Getting a family of six to agree on a suitable meal was almost impossible and definitely not rewarding. Planning meals, spending the time to research recipes and purchase the food was time consuming and very expensive. Searching for coupons and grocery store sale circulars was way too much work and often not worth the time spent. He thought there simply had to be a better way.
After talking to several friends, he realized his family wasn’t the only one with this issue. He decided to combine a background in technology and compassion for families to create Food on the Table.
