EatLove Team Showcase: Meet Benedicta Jovita

This story is part of the EatLove Team Showcase series. Read along to learn about our outstanding members and see what drew them to EatLove.

In three sentences, here’s some background about myself:

I was born and raised in Indonesia, but now call San Francisco home. Growing up, food is a huge part of my culture and family — my mom and grandma taught me how to cook from a very young age, and this is how I discovered my passion for nutrition and health. In my spare time, I like to go hiking and exploring the many brunch places the Bay Area has to offer.

Here’s what I do for my job at EatLove:

  • Outreach to potential and current recipe partners
  • Content creation for Eatlove’s social media/ blog/ newsletter
  • Product development and research

My favorite thing about working for EatLove is…

Being able to integrate my love for food and nutrition in a tech space while simultaneously learning new skills I wouldn’t have acquired otherwise!

Why does food matter?

Food connects us to our family and friends, to our memory, and (most importantly) it connects us to our body by providing nutrients and releasing the “feel good” hormones in our body :)

I believe in EatLove’s commitment to health through food because…

EatLove makes it SO EASY to eat healthy (and delicious!) meals by taking the guesswork out of “what’s for dinner?” The cool thing is, you can almost guarantee there’s something for everyone and it’s so easy to swap one meal to another according to your dietary preferences and lifestyle. Contrary to restrictive meal plans that looks more like a prescription, EatLove works with your food restriction instead of against it — and provides you with a ton of options so you don’t get bored easily.
