Gifts for good.

Each purchase of a mug or water bottle buys three meals for a person in need.

Food we’re proud to serve.

Our focus is to cook healthy, plant-based meals we would want to eat ourselves, and deliver them by hand to unsheltered communities. We create healthy, plant-based meals we would want to eat ourselves or serve to our families, then hand deliver them in eco-friendly packaging to unsheltered communities. Each meal is delivered with a smile and a conversation to communicate to those we are serving that they are seen, loved, and their life matters.
