Meet The Founder

Nicholas Doran

Allow me to introduce myself as Nicholas Doran, a culinary enthusiast driven by a profound love for the art of cooking. My ultimate goal is to ignite that same passion in young children, inspiring them to embrace the joys of the culinary world. Through programs like “Meals in Motion,” I aim to share my knowledge, empower young minds, and create a new generation of aspiring chefs and food enthusiasts. Together, we can embark on a flavorful journey and discover the transformative power of culinary arts.

My Desire To Serve Comes From My Experiences

My deep-rooted desire to serve others is found in the personal hardships I have triumphed over. Rising above poverty and personal hurdles, I founded “Meals in Motion” with the purpose of sharing culinary knowledge with underserved communities, empowering individuals to transform their lives through the remarkable power of food and unlocking their full potential.    

Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.

Changing Lives Through The Love of Culinary

Meet Nicholas Doran, a passionate advocate for empowering individuals to overcome adversity and build better lives. Growing up in poverty, Nicholas faced numerous challenges as the youngest child raised by a single, terminally ill mother.  At the age of 12, tragedy struck when his mother passed away, leaving him without parental guidance. Placed in the care of his older brother, who had an extensive criminal record, Nicholas struggled without the support he needed. Finding himself caught in a destructive path that led him to experience more poverty and eventually led to his incarceration.

Determined to break free from despair, with an unwavering resolve and a touch of divine intervention, he conquered the obstacles that stood in his way. Looking back, he realized that his mother’s cooking skills had been a lifeline during times of  poverty. Inspired by her legacy, Nicholas founded “Meals in Motion,” a program dedicated to teaching culinary arts to children in underserved communities. Through this initiative, Nicholas empowers young minds by sharing culinary knowledge and fostering a supportive environment. He believes that with the right tools and mindset, children can gain confidence and achieve their dreams.

“Meals in Motion, goes beyond teaching cooking techniques; we create a sense of belonging and reunites families”. Nicholas firmly believes that success comes from making plans, taking action, and completing tasks. By instilling this belief in children and their families, he aims to transform lives. Nicholas’s journey from adversity to empowerment serves as a shining example of the indomitable human spirit, and the unconditional love of God. Reminding us all of our boundless potential for growth.

Join Nicholas Doran on his mission to provide culinary education and inspire confidence in underserved communities. Together, we can create a world where every individual believes in their abilities and unlocks their true potential.
