Who are we?
pineapple was founded in 2015 with a simple, yet powerful idea: bring women together around good food. Today, we are a collaborative of over 70,000 women who convene online and offline, with food as the centerpiece. We believe food is a great activator for women to connect and share with each other, strengthen our understanding of one another and our varied experiences in the world, and uplift one another.
In cities across the country, pineapple co-creates fun and inclusive experiences for our community to inform, support and celebrate one another.
We highlight the work of incredible women and foster substantive conversation on feminism & food: from urban agriculture to entrepreneurship, fermentation to food policy, and beyond.
We live and breathe our philosophy, #pinefor, where admiring other women, ideas, products and companies that inspire us creates community. Through both our digital content and real life gatherings, pineapple highlights food as an element of personal style, identity, and values. We're a collaborative and inclusive community for all women & food.
