About Us

Founded in 2001 by Jeanne Grierson, Eat My Words has been a labour of love from its inception. Initially Eat My Words was conceived to offer unique food products, beautifully packaged, to raise money and feed people, through the very worthwhile Out of the Cold program. In 2006 Jeanne decided to dedicate Eat My Words to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Born in South Africa herself, Jeanne was inspired by what the Stephen Lewis Foundation was achieving, and understood the magnitude of the task they had taken on. Sacha, Jeanne’s daughter (hence the cupcakes) joined Eat My Words in 2008, to bring a welcome new approach - and added enthusiasm - to Eat My Words.
