About Us

Hello and welcome!

He Needs Food was created by and for everyone who loves to eat. (So, everyone!). Our mission is to provide our readers with the most in-depth and well-researched food content on the web.

My name is Chase “Chili” Palmer, and I am the founder and chief editor at He Needs Food. I, like you, spend most of my money on food. I like it all: good food, bad food, expensive food, cheap food, and free food. I will spend a ton of money at the grocery store, and then go to a restaurant for dinner, just like all good people on this planet do.

I grew up around Washington, D.C. and that allowed me to experience a ton of different cuisines from around the world as D.C. is such a melting pot. I’ve traveled to many countries and had some of the best food the world has to offer. Blue crabs in Maryland, shawarma in Israel, pad thai in Thailand, gyros in Greece, steaks in Chicago, BBQ in Kansas City, Missouri, pastéis de nata in Portugal, lobster in Maine, and McDonald’s everywhere.

In my late 20s, I developed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which led me to do more research on the food I eat to ensure it doesn’t hurt my body. This research led me to want to create my own website, in which I could share some of the best tips with readers like you. I’ve learned many lessons the hard way, and don’t want others to go through that. Thus, I created He Needs Food to provide robust, data-informed, and peer-reviewed answers to commonly asked food questions.

I hope we succeed in our mission of educating you, and making you a bit hungry too!
