Two Brooklyn Women Plan To Eat Dog Food For A Month
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- It's meal time and the dogs aren't the only ones ready to chow down. Two Brooklyn women believe their dog food recipe is so healthy that they are willing eat it too.
Alison and Hannah invited 1010 WINS' John Montone to join in on the meal. Listen here to see if he accepted their offer!
Alison Weiner and Hanna Mandelbaum, the co-owners of Evermore Pet Food, plan to eat the dog food daily beginning March 1. The duo plans to stream the proof at evermorepetfood.com.
Weiner said her dog, Connor, benefits from the hormone-free meat and fresh produce.
"His coat has gotten a lot shinier, he has a lot more energy and for dog people out there his poop is really, really great to pick up," Weiner said. "I had to go there, you have to, when you have a dog you gotta go there."
Weiner and Mandelbaum, who both went to the University Of Chicago, started the business in 2009 to produce healthy food choices for pets.
Weiner once trained to be a health supportive chef in the city and Mandelbaum has experience as a dog walker and trainer.
According to the company website, Evermore pet food is made of fresh, human-grade ingredients, USDA-certified antibiotic and hormone-free meats and no by-products, fillers, corn, soy, wheat, potatoes, or salt. The food is currently sold throughout New York City and the mid-Hudson Valley.
"This is not about the shock value of eating dog food," Wiener said in a press release. "We want to stand behind our claims by demonstrating the integrity of our products."
