Heather Stouffer ’96


Eating healthy, well-balanced meals have always been an important part of Heather Stouffer’s life.  She left Denison not sure what she wanted to do but she knew she wanted to work in a field related to children’s health.  In 2006, as a new parent, she launched Mom Made Foods at a local farmer’s market to offer frozen organic meals for children. She has since expanded the company’s frozen food lines into thousands of grocery store freezers nationally.  Mom Made Foods works with some of the nation’s most celebrated grocery retailers including Whole Foods, Kroger, Walmart, Safeway and HEB to name a few.

Not only has her dream for making healthy children’s foods been realized, but she’s been awarded Progressive Grocer’s Top Women in Grocery for Senior Executives,
Washington Business Journal’s Woman Who Means Business, Washington Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40, and the University of Maryland People’s Choice Award for small, local business. Heather has told the Mom Made story on major media outlets such as the Oprah Winfrey Show, CBS, ABC, FOX, NPR, Rachel Ray Magazine, etc.
