Brainstorming during a success team meeting, Stacey Malainey was asked what do you like to do for fun to which she responded, “having food fights!” Everyone agreed this was fun and she observed how the thought of flying food made people happy. Talking with friends and creative experts she worked on a plan to write a book. She invited excited participants to play out the scenes of a food fight for a photo shoot tactfully orchestrated with a great clean up crew! The result… an inspiring book showcasing ways to bring people together and part proceeds going to local food banks. After printing her book (and having a baby), Stacey continues to share her passion of writing as a writer and Westshore Manager for Victoria Mom. Along with her plans to write creative books with children, she hopes to help other moms stay true to themselves and their dreams.
