Paige Nathan joined the MPI Georgia Chapter in November 2018 and is the Chief of Food Trucks at Food with Purpose – Culinary Events on Wheels. Founded in 2015, this Atlanta-based premier food truck catering connector has a passion for bringing people together. She is a culinary entrepreneur and promotes locally sourced food. Partnering with the most sought-after food trucks in the “ATL” and around the country, the Food with Purpose team provides distinctive culinary events for 50 to 5,000 guests in both indoor and outdoor settings. From employee appreciation days, grand openings, and professional meetings to community gatherings and family celebrations, Paige delivers seamless culinary experiences without all the fuss and muss of traditional catering. And, no kitchens required.
She firmly believes there is no greater purpose than building strong, sustainable communities. As such, Paige actively partners with clients to incorporate eco-friendly products at their events as well as tapping into other food truck owners who also rely on locally sourced foods. Whenever possible, the team coordinates opportunities to donate funds and even leftover food to those in need. In her down time, Paige volunteers with Slow Food Atlanta, The Giving Kitchen, and Wholesome Wave. Colleagues, clients, and food truck partners describe Paige as energetic, thoughtful, responsive, and passionate about what she does.
Paige and the Food with Purpose team have developed an impressive client list which includes Home Depot, Mercedes Benz, Atlanta Falcons, IHG, Georgia State University, and Bluecat Productions (Netflix's Ozark) establishing a reputation for providing responsive, timely, and efficient services from start to finish. Food with Purpose was also selected to participate as a preferred vendor for the Super Bowl XLIII Business Connect program which was a definite highlight for Paige...
Prior to starting Food with Purpose, Paige worked as a non-profit fundraiser and event planner in Washington, DC, New Orleans, and Atlanta. She has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Spanish from University of Vermont and a Master of Education from The American University. On weekends, Paige can be found exploring farmers markets, ethnic restaurants, festivals, and spending time hiking with her family and dog, Ty. She’s one of those people who has never met a stranger and wouldn't love to connect – especially if she can help you deliver a memorable food truck event.
