Our Story

The Food Farmacy opened its first ‘Wellness Hub’ at the Atune Health Centre in 2021, but its story began long before that in the heart of visionary Camila Skaf. Camila, a Brazilian plant-based chef with Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Italian ancestry, had a dream to restore people’s lives through a whole-person-health approach. In 2016, her life and career took a transformative turn when she and her husband Joseph moved to Australia to pursue this dream.

Camila’s approach is simple yet profound, rooted in evidence-based models. She believes in the healing power of cooking and eating together, understanding the benefits of nutritious foods, taking walks on the beach, and experiencing the radiance of sunlight, fresh air, and social connection. For her, life is a divine journey that exercises faith and love for oneself and others.

Today, the Food Farmacy is surrounded by a caring community that uplifts wholesome living and supports this purpose-driven business. Alongside this community, we have an amazing team of chefs, baristas, kitchen hands, waitstaff, and volunteers who create a heavenly environment for all. Together, they have transformed thousands of lives.

We value our environment and respect our local farmers by creating seasonal and functional meals using the freshest, chemical-free ingredients available. From our signature wellness bowls to our energizing, healing drinks, our goal is to provide an amazing sensory experience that heals body, mind, and soul. We invite you to join us on this wellness journey.
