Danielle Desrosiers

Our Story

Blackstone Valley native and founder, Danielle Desrosiers, has always been passionate about a healthy lifestyle.

Danielle's grandfather introduced her to fresh foods from his own acre of garden, where he grew everything from lettuce to blueberries. He taught her to cook her first meal and from there, her passion for cooking was born.

As a massage therapist for over 15 years, Danielle noticed more and more people suffering from ailments, including obesity, gluten intolerances, diabetes etc. 
She felt she could help, and so she began to seek a way to build a career around her passion for cooking. She created a restaurant/cafe concept that would cater to people in a way that ANYONE could enjoy eating out. Ultimately her focus was to create healthy meals, using whole food ingredients, without compromising on the flavor of the food. All her items would be 100% Gluten Free, and she incorporated many options for Vegans/Vegetarians. She wanted people to be able to enjoy dining in, or just a quick grab n go. She also knew that many people were too busy to cook at home so she wanted to include frozen "take home" meals. From that interest, The Green Plate was born! Serving the community since 2014.

To feed our family, friends, and community, delicious, freshly prepared meals that will make them feel good about eating healthy!

The Green Plate Team is committed to supporting the communities that we serve. Check our Social Media pages for our latest "out 'n about" adventures!

We are proud members of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as a growing list of "shop local" grassroots organizations.

We are blessed with incredibly generous clients and friends who have graciously shared their experiences with us at The Green Plate. Thank you all!

"Excellent Experience"

"We had an excellent experience there. I'm a vegan, which makes it hard to eat out. The menu had several choices for me, and the food I ordered was delicious! Highly recommend!!!

Also, the service was wonderful!"


"Love the Green Plate!"

"Love the Green Plate! Always super fresh and delicious!

The portion size of the large bowl was enough for dinner and lunch the next day! I will go back often.


"I'm a Huge Fan!"

"Best place in the area for a healthy and delicious meal. I'm a huge fan, I go as often I can because it's that amazing! Fresh ingredients, creative combinations…I truly love it there!" 


"Absolutely Delicious"

My fiance and I recently moved to Whitinsville and we were so excited to have stumbled upon this gem! They are super helpful and were able to educate us on their offerings and food options. After our first Quinoa Bowl we were hooked! We started making this a weekly option for us (sometimes two times a week). It's delicious healthy food! Definitely try this place out if you're looking for a healthier option for a night out!


"Warm Atmosphere"

A nice change of pace from the humdrum. The place has a warm atmosphere when you walk in. There is nice decor, unique items, and the place is well-kept as it is neat and clean. There is also a nice open layout that doesn't make you feel cramped while you're eating. The owner is very friendly and passionate about what she is doing, everything is clearly marked with what is in it (whether or not is has nuts and such), and the food itself isn't bogged down with any of the artificial additives that are so common these days. She is also sporting some local vendors for honey and seasonings that you can browse while you're waiting for your delicious dish to arrive!



"Everything served here is very fresh and natural which is a blessing to people who have food allergies and need to know exactly what is in their prepared foods. Top-quality ingredients are used and the owners know every ingredient in each salad dressing and food served.
