Linda Whitehead spent years of her life dedicated to climbing the corporate ladder and becoming a mum before she realised she’d lost her passion, purpose and true self along the way.

#BEYOUROWN MEETS EMMA MOIGNARD
Emma Moignard grew up in Mornington on a family farm with her father, mother and brother, and at the age of 7, became a vegetarian after walking in on a skinned lamb hanging from the barn roof one afternoon. This was the spark of change for Em, and after qualifying as a chef at the age of 19, created Soulful Vegan Food (SVF). About a stone throw away from where the café sits now, Em's SVF market stall at the Mornington Wednesday market was a huge success, setting the scene for a more impactful and accessible way of showcasing delicious vegan food with the café's recent opening.
