Taste of Feed Me: Sarah Stein

Gramwich = ice cream sandwich with a soft graham cookies. All gramwiches are handmade and born from local ingredients. Gramwich was created by Sarah, an architect with a passion for making. She thinks its important to invite opportunities of freedom, willingness, and potential into our lives. Gramwich is an assertion of creative ability and an initiative to encourage choice. Because life is better when we choose how to live it.
Read more about Sarah’s philosophy behind Gramwich below & come to the Feed Me opening event to try one!

Dear Friends,

We spend a large part of our lives doing things we think we are supposed to do.
We go to college, have professional careers, get married, buy houses, and have kids.
It isn’t wrong to do those things, but it is wrong to be held hostage by the idea that we must do those things.

When we do something out of obligation, we deprive ourselves of choice.
We do because we must, not because we want.
Choice is one of our most basic human rights.
It asserts our willingness to live over the universe’s letting.
The ability to choose confirms our freedom
– the freedom to govern one’s self.

Making ice cream sandwiches is my way of asserting a “willingness to live”.
The ability to create something with my own hands,
something that I can pick up, taste, share, enjoy
– and then do all over again.

This creation-consumption formula is really only successful when we create by choice,
when we couple our willingness to live with our ability to live.

Ice cream sandwiches will not save the world.
They won’t cure disease, reduce poverty,
or mitigate natural disasters.
They merely represent a way of choosing in life.
This is an endeavor to excite and encourage willingness.
It is only a ripple, but how much more beautiful is a sea
with a thousand small ripples than one giant wave.

    I went down to the local park last Saturday hoping to find the Gramwich concession. No such luck. When are you going to open a franchise in Castellammare di Stabia?
