Presentation by: Heather Emmerson, Prep to your door Founder
Heather’s mission is to change food through strengthening local food systems so that everybody wins: the community, our health, our planet. In 2016, she founded Prep To Your Door in an effort to make that a reality. The company serves Austin and Houston organic, farm-to-table meals in zero-waste packaging. All products are plant-based, gluten and dairy free.
Heather has spent the last 15 years rebuilding her life after being incarcerated for one year. Her promise upon release was to grow, be honest, and do good things. She graduated from University of Texas with dual degrees in Mathematics and Linguistics, and in 2020 with her Masters from Harvard University.
She is currently co-leading a team of 25 people and her proudest accomplishment is winning “FAVE Sustainable Business” in 2019, and being invited to the board of Truth Be Told in 2020. Heather was also a finalist for Austin Under 40 Awards in 2020.
