In 2011, Kate founded the Lunch Lady blog after her 9-year-old daughter was bullied for her homemade school lunches. Two years later, in collaboration with We Print Nice Things, Lunch Lady Magazine was published. You can now find it on sale all over the world!

Kate was the editor and major contributor of photography, recipes and stories. In 2017, Kate left Lunch Lady to spend time with her family and pursue other projects.
