Natural Awakenings Boston

Healthy Cake Tasting on the Harvard Campus

The Holistic, a healthy baking company founded by two Harvard students, is collaborating with the Harvest Co-Op to bring the monthly Co-Op community meeting to the Harvard University campus from 5 to 6 p.m., October 3. The event also welcomes the company to the Co-Op’s community.

The Holistic creates nutritious cakes that are vegan and gluten-free. “Our mission is to support healthier choices by making healthy cake both tasty and affordable,” says Co-Founder Alice Han. This special event, which is free and open to the public, will also be co-hosted by a number of Harvard campus health and food-related student organizations and feature cakes from The Holistic. Visitors will be able to sample the cakes and engage with local businesses and Harvard student groups on campus. “It’s a great way for local food businesses to work together to enrich the community through healthier food alternatives,” says Han. “It also highlights how holistic ideas about nutrition can be imported into such indulgent products as cakes and cupcakes, which have traditionally contained empty calories.”
