At The BRDGE, we believe every meal has a story — a journey from the heart of a home cook to your table. Born from a simple yet profound idea: to connect, nourish, and unite people through the power of food.

Our Founders Story

DANIELLA JASPER-OKUMAGBA

Born from a simple yearning for a taste of home, The BRDGE started with our founder's personal journey. Moving from Nigeria to Canada at nine, she missed the comforting flavors of her mother’s traditional cooking — a piece of home she hadn't learned to recreate. This longing sparked The BRDGE: a heartfelt mission to connect everyone with the authentic tastes of their heritage.

"Our platform is more than a marketplace; it's a celebration of culture, a rekindling of memories, and a community where every bite tells a story. Join us in savoring these cherished flavors and be part of a movement that turns nostalgic dishes into shared experiences."
