Shemecka is one of the most giving person I know. Her nonprofit slice-25 gives to many organizations throughout the triangle. I have ate and taste Shemecka's good food and she is a great chef and cook. she cares for others and looks out for the less fortunate. She works hard to make the community better by providing her services for the best for humanity. She is the best and I know she will continue to do well and serve her community.

Slice 325 founder Shemecka McNeil is a true professional with a heart for helping people eat healthy, delicious food. She graciously hosted a webinar for my company on how to grow micro greens. It was fantastic! Shemecka packed the one-hour event with great information and lots of fun. Many participants commented that they would watch her if she had her own show. Shemecka is an excellent teacher, and her expertise and love for her subject matter shine through. I look forward to working with Shemecka and Slice 325 again in the near future.

I invited them to a middle school career fair and was blown away by how the students responded to her presentation. Ms. McNeil came in dressed as a chef and presented about her journey with cooking and how she began to share her culinary skills with others. So many of the students left excited about cooking and expanding their palates and maybe trying new foods like purple cauliflower or sweet potatoes. So thankful that she was able to make it!

Slice 325 is an awesome organization! The food is out of this world and the hospitality is much more than you would ever expect. Our Agency offers support groups and the timing is right around dinner time, so we try to provide a little something for our clients to eat while they learn. We were looking for ideas for our clients when we came across Slice 325. The owner Shemecka showed up at our support group, served everyone and was very warming and inviting. Shemecka treats everyone with so much respect and love. You can tell that Shemecka loves what she does for the community. I can't say enough about how great Slice 325 is!!!!! We love her so much, we have made a special page for her on our website! https://flvf.org/slice-325/

I work with Families Living Violence Free, Granville County's Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Agency located in Oxford, NC. I am also one of the DV101 class coordinators. Slice 325 has hosted several of our trainings and we couldn't be more pleased with what she provides for us. So many of our victims/survivors need assistance with skills on how to coupon and make their money last as well as helping them maximize their resources in order to make nutritious/tasty meals for their families on little or no budget! Shemecka's knowledge of nutrition and meal prep has helped our families try to continue on with their lives after having experienced so much trauma. We HIGHLY recommend Slice 325 and will definitely contact Shemecka again in the near future! We just love her!!

Slice 325 goes above and beyond for the community and the surrounding area. This nonprofit does extraordinary work whether it’s assisting with events for the youth or working with the domestic violence women’s shelter in down town Raleigh. The founder of this nonprofit is always willing to help in any way possible. She is a phenomenal person to work with.

Shamecka McNeil (Slice 325 founder) is a great resource for all things healthy eating, sustainable food prep for all socioeconomic backgrounds, and more. Slice 325 introduces people as young as school age to food; growing, picking, cooking, how to cook with what you have, and the list can go on. Ms. McNeil will leave with a new sense of "wow, that is good and easy" and ready to explore new vegetables, green thumb life, and share newfound knowledge with family friends. I would recommend Slice 325 to any school district, nonprofit, community group, or housing authority in the nation.
