We want to help you take the inconvenience out of dinner and make cooking fun again by leaving the meal planning to us!” Alyssa:Alyssa Talley is one of the Co-Founders at Local Urban Bites.

While growing up in Victoria, Alyssa had a passion for ballet and other forms of dance, which took her to places all over North America for training and performances. After finishing up her dance career, she graduated from the University of Victoria with a BSc. in Psychology, which lead to a number of high-level management positions. Throughout this time, Alyssa maintained a particular fondness for baking and cooking which has followed her into her current position at Local Urban Bites.
