History of Meet Me at the Dinner Table
Meet Me at the Dinner Table started as Kitchens Resolved, in 2009. Founded in 2009 by Jessica Barna, Kitchens Resolved, because Jessica saw and experienced how difficult it was to be in charge of food for a household. Jessica focused on organizing and setting up kitchens so people could more easily cook at home. As she saw and organized more and more kitchens, she realized that having an organized kitchen is only 1 step in the process of efficiently feeding yourself and your family. Based on people’s requests, she added meal planning to her services, and helped people start reaching their goals (saving time, saving money, eating healthier) through planning and coaching for cooking and eating at home.
In 2011, Jessica released the workbook Meet Me at the Dinner Table, which was written to help moms get dinner on the table. The workbook guides getting started with meal planning, and continuing it on a weekly basis. The workbook is a Do-It-Yourself guide to getting organized for feeding your family. Want a sneak peek?

Jessica Barna grew up in Florida and moved to San Diego to attend UCSD. While pursuing her US History degree, she worked her way up at Starbucks to become a Store Manager. At the age of 19, she was in charge of the finding, training and success of 35 employees, and was running one of the busiest Starbucks in the country. She quickly learned that planning, organization, systems and efficiency were crucial to success! As she graduated and left Starbucks, she realized how difficult feeding a household was, as it lacked the planning, systems and organization that a business had. She loves working with individuals to help them get organized around their business and personal goals. Jessica loves dogs, hiking, and antiques.
