Bare Life & Ali Lazowski: When Cancer & Chronic Illness Meet Hot Cocoa

Grab your hot cocoa- this week Kim and Erik welcome Ali Lazowski! Ali is the founder and CEO of Bare Life, a crave-worthy and allergen-friendly food startup, inspired by her journey with chronic illness. Ali attended culinary school in Italy before starting college at Johns Hopkins University. Ali has always been passionate about food, but it was her simultaneous battles with cancer and Lyme disease that inspired Ali to truly explore her love of food and launch a business. She began by creating Bare Life's coconut hot cocoa mix - organic, Kosher, vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, and produced locally - and by writing Bare Life’s hot cocoa-centric recipes. She was also recently named one of the Hartford Business Journal’s and Connecticut Magazine’s Top 40 under 40.

Bare Life will be donating part of their profits for the month of June to the Loving Communities Fund & Schott Foundation for Public Education, Journey 4 Justice, Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools & Dignity in Schools Campaign in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and communities of color impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
