About

Welcome to The Hungry Goat. We are Paul & Jordan Yamas, chefs and owners of this little kitchen. We have 4 kids, a grandchild on the way, 2 dogs, and a feral cat, so we know what it’s like to feed a hungry crowd. Combined, we have over 30 years expereince in the food industry cooking at and managing some of the most well-known Jackson staples. In the fall of 2018, The Hungry Goat was born as a way to combine our love of family and food. We saw a need to help put good, wholesome food on the table for your family – but life is so busy.

Since then, we have had consistent write ups in Jackson Free Press, Clarion Ledger, and many other publications. We have been nominated 2 years in a row for Rankin’s Best of Best (Best Caterer), Clarion Ledger’s Best of 2021 (Best Caterer), and Jordan was awarded from PriortyOne Bank “Top 40 Under 40.” Having cooked over a million servings of food through our carryout meals and catering, we believe that it is our responsibility to pour back into our communites. In almost 3 years of business, over $30,000 in monetary and food donations have been made to charities, schools, sports, and non-profits. This is why it is so important to support small business – because it is the backbone of our economy and keeps the wheels turning.

We are so humbled and grateful for our little kitchen. It is a place we hope you find not only good food, but an amazing sense of community. We love what we do, and we love our customers.

One question we get a lot – “what’s the story behind the name?” The offspring of goats are called “kids,” and our kids are always hungry.
