Garní Food Studio

Garní Food Studio Fresh, organic, frozen broth and sauces perfectly portioned so you use only what you need!

My idea to start Garní Food Studio came after refusing to be limited by substandard sauce and stock options in the grocery store. I found that these fundamental kitchen elements lack transparency in terms of quality and origin of ingredients: too many preservatives, high sodium contents and made from concentrate. Stocks are sold in impractical containers for how the everyday consumer uses them. You use a little and toss the rest after it sits in the refrigerator for a few weeks, leading food waste and excessive packaging. That’s when I realized I could create a better product that produced less waste. And voila, Garní was born. Developed societies are becoming increasingly aware of how our food purchases make far-reaching and lasting impacts on our planet. We seek out companies who choose to make earth-friendly decisions. Recent studies show that 32% of all food is wasted from farm to fork; with Garní Food Studio, I strive to be the change that others can stand behind. Washington DC is experiencing a health-conscious, eco-friendly renaissance, and I knew I wanted to contribute to it by building a sustainable business in the nation’s capital. I’m grateful to have found a calling that combines my passions for sustainability with my love of creating delicious food for people. I know that Garní Food Studio will be able to educate consumers on how to be more mindful of how they buy and prepare food, while helping them reverse harmful waste-creating habits. Our stocks and sauces are just the beginning. Hopefully our consumers will take what they’ve learned from us and help move the ongoing food revolution forward.

Mission: Garní Food Studio’s mission is to create fresh, frozen products with recognizable ingredients that are perfectly portioned for any meal. Our broths and sauces offer high quality convenience for our consumers while reducing food waste.

Stacey: Garní Food Studio

I am thrilled to announce that Garní Food Studio is crowdfunding a 0% interest loan on Kiva Zip. Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has distributed $709 million over 10 years, in 85 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses.

As you may already know, Garní Food Studio’s mission is to create fresh, frozen products with recognizable ingredients that are perfectly portioned for any meal. Our stocks and sauces offer high quality convenience for our consumers while reducing food waste.


I'm currently in a private fundraising period, during which I have 15 days to get 23 lenders in order to make it on the public platform where anyone on Kiva Zip can lend to me. The funds from this loan will go towards purchase equipment and packaging for my product, purchase wholesale organic ingredients, marketing and branding work, and commercial kitchen membership.


I would ask you to lend as little as $25 (which you will get back!) so that I can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support me, please follow this link to my profile page https://zip.kiva.org/loans/18176/i/9j8d . This is the only way your loan will be tracked as coming through me.

Thank you for your support, I am honestly so grateful.

Please feel free to pass this info along to anyone you think would like to be a part of this amazing fundraising journey! All are welcome to donate.
