About bagel nation
What can we tell you about us?
First, we’re Nir and Adi from Bagel Nation.
For us, celebrating family with food is close to our hearts. So is supporting Aussie farmers, local producers and our community.
Uncle AL’s Association
So when our uncle told us he was sick with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – a crippling motor neuron disease, the news was devastating.
But we all took a deep breath and put our heads together, asking, “How could we help our uncle fight ALS?”
Bagel dreams dashed by COVID-19
That’s when the idea of selling bagels from a travelling food caravan was born. Our vision was threefold. First, raise money for Uncle AL’s Association. Second, heighten public awareness about motor neuron disease and ALS in particular, and third, donate to research investigating ALS cures.
To fund our travelling food caravan dream and charitable goals, we sold most of our possessions, including our home. But three days later, COVID-19 shut Australia down.
Consequently, border restrictions shut our plan down too. Initially, the setback made us sad. But as the saying goes, “Behind every dark cloud is a silver lining.”
Silver lining for Bagel Nation
Our silver lining came with the idea of swapping the food caravan idea for our Bagel Nation store.
Not only can we help Uncle AL’s, but we could bring the community together with the love of our food.
So it’s with great pleasure we invite you to try our bagels and donuts.
