Kieumy is passionate about healthy seasonal food which is good for people and kind to the planet. She founded BOM (Beautiful Wholesome Meals), a social enterprise which employs and trains up refugee women, teaching people to make more conscious choices about the food they eat through sustainable culinary activities.
