What is Punk Rawk Labs?

Punk Rawk Labs is a Minneapolis based company which specializes in living cuisine (consisting of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouts heated to less than 118 degrees).  This type of cuisine has been lauded as a particularly healing diet, and it is quickly gaining mainstream appeal as a gourmet cuisine.  Owner, Alissa, inadvertantly started this company while healing from a toxic exposure and a car accident.  (You can read more about the evolution of PRL on the blog).

What does Punk Rawk Labs do?

Currently, PRL has two product lines:  kale chips and nut milk cheeses.  In addition, Punk Rawk Labs TV (an uncooking show) is a web based cooking show which features unique living cuisine recipes, gardening tips, amazing musical guests and much, much more.

What is this campaign about and where does the money go?

This campaign is the official launch of Punk Rawk Labs.  PRL has been developing in a more 'behind the scenes' capacity for the last several years while owner, Alissa, recovered from a couple accidents.  She has just finished the last of her therapy.  Now it's time to take on the world!  The money from this campaign will go to expand production of our nut milk cheeses to meet a national demand.  This involves moving into a bigger kitchen space, buying equipment to scale up the operation (blenders, dehydrators, fermentation rigs, supplies, etc.), and hire a couple people to help expand production.  This is a more specific breakdown of costs...

NOTE:  this does not include the ~10% fees which go to kickstarter/amazon.

Thanks for your support.

Thank you so much for your interest in my company.  This idea seemed like an impossible mission to me five years ago.  But the universe has been conspiring to expand my perspective.  Thank you for being a part of that universe!

    Digital Download of 'The Screaming Cherry Blossoms' demo. The Screaming Cherry Blossoms was the band that owner, Alissa, fronted before she got sick and became a chef.
