Our Story

 

LaDonna K. Johnson, a specialty chef, is on a mission to "nourish the body and feed the soul " with her culturally inspired vegan cuisine. While Soul Food is synonymous for ingredients that are often high in fat and include unhealthy processed foods that have been linked to the development of chronic diseases, OSKC eliminates these foods and uses fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, herbs, spices and love to create an unforgettable food experience.

 

OSKC is passionate about being an environmentally responsible company and believes that eating a plant based diet is one of the first steps to sustainability. Supporting local farmers and merchants, recycling, composting and using environmentally friendly items are ways in which OSKC has committed to sustaining the community through economics and the world through reducing their carbon footprint. 

" It was important to me to create vegan dishes using fresh ingredients and eliminating things that have been proven to cause chronic disease without sacrificing the taste and the experience.  As someone who has lived a vegetarian lifestyle since 2006 (vegan since 2016), I developed a passion for preparing vegan dishes out of necessity.  I grew up around a family who loved food and later became a self-proclaimed "foodie".  My grandmother cooked comfort food, like no one else, and I would follow her around the kitchen and there developed a passion for cooking.  Her home-made pies, fried chicken and rolls were second to none.  Sammye Gaines, my grandmother, is the inspiration behind what I do and how I do it.  Watching my family develop, suffer and die from chronic diseases changed my mind about food and unleashed my passion that started me on this mission.   I, unfortunately, can not save my family members that are gone but maybe I can save someone else's family member on my mission to change people's perception about vegan food."   

OSKC offers delicious vegan cuisine that is fresh and innovative. We believe that people can enjoy great vegan cuisine while supporting the local economy and the environment and we are proud to be a part of this movement.
