The story began with Bertha Famble, mother of our Founder, Gwendolyn Fox. Bertha Famble was diagnosed with Dementia in 2005. Mrs. Fox began to notice her mother having difficulties with using eating utensils. As time passed, Mrs. Famble’s condition progressively declined, and she began experiencing difficulty feeding herself independently. Watching her mother’s regression motivated Mrs. Fox to find a solution.
Letter To Mother
Just wanted to write you a note to say thanks for all you’ve done and all the sacrifices you made. Thanks for seeking out and finding a “Safe Place” that we as kids could comfortably call home. Thanks for pulling the double-shifts and private duty to ensure we had food on the table and clothes on our backs.
Thanks for the trips to the thrift store. Thanks for all the Easter, Christmas, and school clothes put on layaway. Thanks for so proudly introducing us to your friends and co-workers. Thanks for being a walking example of what Faith in God can do.
With all My Love and a Heart full of thanks,
The solution was to create a food alternative that would allow her mother, along with others that show a decline in cognitive function (suffering from Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease) and fighting learning disorders, along with cancer and other apraxia conditions, to feed themselves without the use of eating utensils. Mrs. Fox then oriented her goal towards providing nutritious meals for those who struggle with intake of their meals. Through this experience, Mrs. Fox was able to see her loved one enjoying meals independently.
Our founder hopes to share her experience with those who have loved ones in the same situation. EzBites wants to raise awareness for and help prevent malnutrition. We aim to give families and friends a chance to regain their dignity as well as embrace the bite-sized meals that will promote healthier eating habits.
