What People are Saying

The Lake Effect Story

We aim to ease your busy life by streamlining your meal needs.

Lake Effect Kitchen prepares fresh food for all occasions. We will deliver an exceptional product each and every time, while building the foundations for people of all abilities to be viewed as authentic members of our community.

The founders of Lake Effect Foods and Lake Effect Kitchen, Mandy Anderson and Aaron Johnson of Grand Haven, started this business for two purposes: to give people access to great food and to support and mentor students and young adults with different abilities in competitive employment skills.
