mikala-s4

Mikala, aka Mikay, has been with us for over two years and is our Front of House Manager. Her warmth and good cheer are infectious and to know Mikala is to feel loved by her. She makes everyone who walks in the door feel welcome. She nurtures her work family with encouragement, support and laughter. Her thirst for knowledge is unquenchable.

Her favorite Feed meal is the Pastrami Hash with an English muffin, avocado salsa and allll the caramelized onions available. If she was a toast special, she’d be thin sliced sourdough with jalapeno jam, chopped bacon and cream cheese because she’s cheesy, spicy and a super snack! When she’s not at Feed she’s snuggling or hiking with her furry babe Moose, and cooking through her Bouchon cookbook.

Mikala’s passion for feeding and caring for people is evident in everything she does. Thank you for being our sunshine Mikala!

Joe Fedora aka Fedorable radiates good energy and is an excellent team player. He is extremely dependable, kind, hard working, and, well, Fedorable!

His favorite Feed meal is our house granola with coconut milk and extra berries. If he was a toast special, he’d be roasted garlic hummus, hickory smoked salsa, avocado and microgreens because they’re bold and delicious and he loves anything with avocado.

When he’s not working the line at Feed, Fedora can be found playing outside, learning to play the piano or creating essential oil blends. In his own words: “Life can be tough sometimes. I find that I am truly happy if I am always creating, exploring, learning, inspiring, spreading unconditional love, teaching and sleeping. ” We love you Fedora! Thank you for all that you do!

She exemplifies the sweetheart policy we strive for at Feed.Her favorite Feed meal is the Green Stuff sandwich and if she was a toast special, she’d be apple jelly, butternut squash and spiced apples on wheat toast because she loves the flavors of autumn. When she’s not at work, she paints, reads, hikes, bikes and hangs with her roomies and their goofy cat.

We are so grateful to have Emily on our team and we look forward to seeing what she accomplishes next. Thank you Emily!

Olivia, aka Liv is a valued member of our Feed family. After working at Nova for many years, she transferred to Feed and brought with her a wealth of experience, speedy efficiency and unparalleled kindness.

Liv was born on a wheat farm near Dutton, Montana and if she was an object found on a farm she’d be a tractor, because she keeps plugging along. Her favorite Feed meal is the Elk Burger. If she was a toast special, it would be on nine grain bread, because, well, it’s complicated. When she’s not slinging dishes at Feed she paints and creates colorful collages.

Zach is a treasure in the kitchen. He works thoughtfully and carefully, and keeps us giggling. We adore his goofball humor, quick wit and optimistic attitude. He started with Inspired Madness Inc. as a dishwasher at Nova Café. Zach A.K.A. “Zatch” has since been promoted from dish to prep cook and most recently to line cook with us here at Feed Café. He is an amazing worker and a quick study. His favorite Feed meal is the Elk Burger. If he were a toast special he’d be something, anything with pineapple, or he’d be a Z-Muff – the Muff sandwich on a biscuit covered in gravy. Aside from shredding cheeses and vegetables at work for fun he shreds the guitar in two local bands.

Zach is an asset to our team and a great human being, thank you for your hard work and great attitude Zach!!
