Ama Scriver and Yuli Scheidt fatgirlfoodsquad.com IG @fatgrlfoodsquad TW @fatgrlfoodsquad Founded in the spring of 2013, Fat Girl Food Squad arose out of Ama Scriver and Yuli Scheidt’s joint desire to create a space to talk frankly and openly about what really mattered to them. Fat Girl Food Squad is a blog, and more importantly — a community, ­ focused on the intersection between food, fat, and Feminism. These core ideas inform everything we do and everything we write about. We aim to provide a safe, positive space for all bodies, while showcasing those who label and identify themselves as fat and endeavoring to breakdown the stereotypes and barriers that surround such a controversial three letter word.
