MAKING IT SIMPLE TO SHOP, COOK AND EAT LOCAL.

 

We're Not Your Average Delivery Service

We help farmers and local purveyors get the best food in their region to you. We save you time, help you answer the nagging question of “what’s for dinner” and we support dozens of local suppliers in each community we serve. If it isn’t obvious, we aren’t your average “meal delivery company”. We source the absolute best local ingredients, pair them with quick + delicious recipes, our boxes are carefully packed with minimal packaging, and we personally deliver this goodness right to your doorstep, nothing is ever shipped.

We want you to feel like you are part of our family. We’ll introduce you to the amazing people that raise, make or harvest your food, you’ll meet the team that curates, gathers and delivers each SOL box, and you can even join us in fundraising campaigns to support local non-profits. Without you, we cannot change our food system.

Parents...Let us curate and deliver weekly lunch kits for your kids!

We know that  we're all wearing different hats these days.  We get it; sometimes it can be overwhelming. That’s why we have created The Lunch Box...a seasonal assortment of the best our local food system has to offer that serves as the foundation for five nutritious meals that are all simple to make!

We've been feeding school children of all ages and grade levels for years. We've taken what we’ve learned about what excites kids and decided to deliver it straight to your door. We want to make eating well as easy as possible for you. Follow us on social media and we will even show you and your kiddos how to make some of the meals, introduce you to some of the farmers and artisans that made the food, and explain the benefits of eating it. We strive to keep it simple and to empower kids to jump in the kitchen and help out themselves. New offerings will be available each week!

Know Your Farmers...Know Your Food!

We here at The SŌL Box believe that it is our responsibility to support those that are "doing things right" when it comes to the food that they produce for us to eat.  We all need to learn about the "who, how and why" when it comes to the way things are produced in our food system.

A Look Back At Our First Two Boxes...

For those of you who are just hearing about us and missed out, or those who want to reminisce about all the beautiful real food that was delivered to their doorsteps...we thought we'd show you how we roll!

SŌL Box Week #1          "Fiesta Time"

Our first ever SŌL Box had fiesta written all over it; featuring black beans from local staple Kandarian Organic Farms, and everything you needed to make your own salsa with fresh summer vegetables from Frecker Farms. These served as a perfect side to tacos made with Southern California raised grass-fed beef from Watkins Cattle Company.  For the vegetarians, what better to stuff a taco with this time of year than fresh local summer squash and sweet potatoes! Throw in some eggs and the best jarred tomatoes we could find from Jovial Foods, some organic spices; and you had the makings of some tasty huevos rancheros. Of course, our handy recipe cards suggested that you scoop it all up with the authentic tortillas made by LA's own Masienda; made from the highest quality Oaxacan single-origin corns. Both meals were topped off with our locally curated artisan creme fraiche and cheddar cheese, and then drizzled with fermented hot sauce made by our friend Chele Eades at Wildly Fermented. Lastly, for a gut-health treat, our debut box included Organic Pastures raw kefir with locally grown strawberries and Redmond Real Sea Salt. Blended together this surely made a heavenly smoothie!  

SŌL Box Week #2         "Summertime Muse"

This box was delivered to your homes on the first day of summer, or as we like to call it the “SŌLstice”. It featured a lime & spice marinated free-range organic chicken with a cherry tomato cucumber salad and roasted potatoes; all drizzled with a creamy cilantro sauce. For the vegetarians, the same dish was available with beautiful marinated local Portobello mushrooms. The next dish was a handmade pasta from Santa Monica favorite Colapasta, with asparagus, sautéed shiitake mushrooms, fresh garlic, Italian parsley, and a light lemony dressing. By popular demand, we baked each of you a handmade loaf of our long-ferment sourdough bread, made with freshly milled California grains. Our sourdough uses wild yeast to create a product that is gentle on your stomach, high in nutrition and tastes great…especially topped with the provided jar of organic, small-batch, seasonal jam from Batch 33. We hope you washed it all down with the jar of organic almond milk from our very good friends at Good Mylk. Lastly, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to give you a little gut-health boost, so we tossed in a jar of fermented Peruvian Sauerkraut from Real Food Devotee.

 

School of Lunch & Acme - Stronger Together!

In order to make our dream of getting as many people to eat real food as possible, we've teamed up with Acme Farms + Kitchen. For the last decade Acme has provided sustainable meal boxes to the Pacific Northwest. They will help us learn and grow in order to get real food directly to you from farmers, food producers, and restaurants that no longer have the demand that they need to thrive.

We will work in unison with Acme and their other local hubs nationwide to grow a thriving community so that everyone can have access to sustainable food. After you order our specially curated box that we put together for you this week, check them out at theacmebox.com to see what we will look like in a few weeks!

We are deeply grateful for their help and commitment to making the world a better place.
