Meet Our Founder

At Mighty Spark, we make amazingly delicious, all-natural premium poultry patties, ground blends, and snack sticks. Consider us your new secret ingredient for a quick, weeknight meal, the “wow” recipe for your next dinner party or your must-have, on-the-go snack.

But we’re so much more than meat. We believe businesses can be forces for good and sustainable improvement in the world. At Mighty Spark, we want to team up with our fans to spark change, and that’s why every purchase provides a meal to someone in need.

Flavor seekers, do-gooders, social sharers – Mighty Spark salutes you, because with your help, we’ve already donated millions of meals and we’re not stopping there.


While running his small Minneapolis farmers market meat stand, Mighty Spark founder, Nick Beste, was asked to help with a school’s backpack program. After researching school backpack programs, Nick was shocked at what he found  – millions of kids went home every Friday after school without knowing where their next meal would come from.

Hunger impacts every community in the U.S. An estimated 1 in 8 Americans are at risk of not having access to enough food to live healthy lives. Worldwide, there are millions of people in need of food. As of 2016, the number of malnourished people rose to 815 million.

Determined to help and create a force for doing good, Mighty Spark was launched in 2018. Today, Mighty Spark has grown into a movement, with more than 3.5 million meals donated. In 2019 alone, we’re on track to donate 2,360,000 meals – that’s one meal donated every 13 seconds!


We’re a small team hard at work making a true impact in the quest to end hunger, and together, we can make a difference.

We could talk your ear off about our passions, but we’ll keep it short. Eat Well. Give Back.
