The Whole Thing is a budding fully-cooked, vegan catering company by Jessica Kapusta, that provides delicious vegan, gluten-free and other avoidant alternative foods for those with allergies, sensitivities and ethics of nonviolence, all in one. Hence, “The Whole Thing!”

Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Paleo? (yes, people do exist who are vegan-paleo-keto-adkins-eatrightforyourtype-with other allergies). No problem for The Whole Thing catering!

I met with Jessica last month, and I got to try her fresh bagel assortment (cinnamon, plain and everything) and vegan cream cheezes (plain and cinnamon) and what a delightful treat that was! So, when you are ordering for your next office luncheon, and you know you have people on your team who often left out because their dietary requirements are not accommodated – stop the discrimination and remember to add “The Whole Thing” to your catering list.

Everyone can eat this way and it’s time for employers, community and family members to recognize that a vegan “diet” isn’t just a picky-eater personal preference choice anymore, it is a need for humanity to adapt to, if we want to survive with a population of eight billion. Jessica updates her menus with the seasonal market, so expect lots of adventures in deliciousness to be had!
