Our Story

Founders: Kevin Spyker & Jessica Annunziata

As Certified Healing Foods Specialists, our mission is to revive the wisdom of our ancestors and inspire vibrant, sustainable lifestyles. We educate people about the facts of our modern diet, sourcing farm fresh goods from the region, and preparing them for optimal nutrition. We demystify the process of fermentation and teach how “living foods” play an important role in enhancing our diet and immunity. We also offer common-sense strategies for “green living” and detoxifying daily life, for our own health and that of the planet.

Additional services include nutritional counseling for small groups or individuals, workshops for creating homemade personal care products and remedies, budgeting for higher quality foods, and shopping guidance to sort through confusing product labeling.

We are proud to serve as chapter leaders for the Weston A. Price Foundation, connecting consumers to nutrient-dense food sources. For the past 3 years, we have worked as the main administrators for a traditional sustainable farm in PA. Most recently, we became regional coordinators for The Natural Life Business Partnership, supporting entrepreneurs.

Having participated with TEDx Jersey City* over the last few years, we’re interested in exploring the concept of quality “edu-tainment.” At Culture Den, we host wellness-oriented educational events, screenings, tastings and networking. This new way of learning also infuses cultural elements from the local community, such as art, music and spoken word, to strengthen our social connections and share our experiences.
