Meet Our Team
These are the people that make the magic happen! Please meet our leadership team below who make the dream of delivering healthy food to curb non-communicable diseases a reality!
John and Matthew Burgess are the inventors of the ChurWaffle Iron and the increasingly popular ChurWaffle mix, made from a recipe inspired by the brothers’ grandmother’s cornbread. The ChurWaffle has made its way from Sacramento into fritters and black bean corn cakes in the dining halls of Harvard University. The brothers have grown a lucrative operation through which they sell barbecue sauce, smoked sausages, premade meals and bulk products for food-service operations.
John and Matthew come from a long line of entrepreneurs. Their California roots go back to 1850, when their then-enslaved great-great-grandfather, Rufus Burgess, was brought to Coloma from New Orleans to mine gold. He was freed soon after he arrived, found enough gold to purchase a parcel of farmland and sent for his wife and son, who had been sold to a slave owner in Kentucky. The Burgess family would eventually own more than 88 acres in Coloma, which included orchards, a blacksmith shop, a church and gold-bearing hills.
It is from this legacy that Jon and Matthew are inspired to use their natural gifts to serve others. It is well known that non communicable diseases result in the deaths of well over 17 million people under the age 70 per year globally. To fight this, the brothers have joined up with health care providers to tackle NCDs through nutrition. healthy ingredients and first-class facilities.
