The Sustainability of Locally-Sourced Meal Delivery Services

  • 2 min read

Can convenience and conscious consumption live in the same world? We’re proof that they can.

Our locally sourced meal delivery services are helping California recalibrate its relationship with food, and the benefits extend beyond your plate and to the local economy, community, and environment.

If you’re on the fence about meal delivery services, here are a few reasons to jump over to where the grass is greener and the food is tastier. 

Reduced Food Waste 

Americans waste over 80 million tons of food every year. Crunch the numbers, and here’s what you get—149 billion meals wasted and $444 billion worth of food lost yearly. 

We’re denting those numbers by offering properly portioned, fully prepped meals delivered to your doorstep twice a week. Or, you can go a la carte and order on a whim, getting precisely what you want.

This eliminates needless trips to the store, reduces food waste and time-consuming cooking sessions, and helps you avoid overeating. 

Lower Carbon Emissions

Studies show that processed food travels an average of 1,300 miles before it ends up in your home. Fresh produce travels even further—an average of 1,500 miles.

Our menus are built from locally sourced ingredients. We don’t truck or ship our food from the other side of the country or internationally. That translates to fresher food, reduced carbon emissions, and a better local economy. 

Supporting Local Economies

“Go local” isn’t just a buzz phrase to us. Supporting our communities means: 

  • More local jobs
  • A more established local economy that’s more resistant to global economic shocks
  • A reduced carbon footprint
  • Deeper connections with people

That last one is significant to us. We love connecting with the San Diego area's farms, customers, and businesses. You’re why we do what we do. 

Health Benefits

Locally sourced meal delivery services can also be tailored to your diet. Whether you follow a grain-free, Keto, or Paleo diet, have allergies, or just want healthier options, our menu ensures you stick to your meal plan.

Portion control is another benefit of meal delivery services like ours. Our meals are appropriately portioned and made with quality ingredients, including free-range grass-fed meats and organic produce.

The results? Less waste and overeating, all without compromising on taste. 

Knowing Where Your Food Comes From

Local farms care for their crops and animals in ways factory farms don’t. That means open pastures, humane treatment, less pesticides, more variety, less pollution and habitat destruction, and so much more.

Like you, we want to know where our food comes from. We feel better knowing that the food entering your home comes from animals, crops, and workers treated with care and respect.
