About Local Crate
Local Crate has a simple mission: to make it delightful to cook and eat locally. Their meal kits are the vehicles through which they connect their customers to the best locally grown ingredients. By working to decentralize the food system, Local Crate helps support the local growers, makers, and food producers in each region they serve, all while decreasing their environmental impact thanks to same or next day delivery, which requires less packaging.
Sourcing Local Ingredients
Opening up your Local Crate should feel like coming home from a trip to the farmers market, and admiring a bounty of delicious ingredients grown in your region. Why is this emphasis on local sourcing so important to the brand? It ensures fresh, high quality products; puts money back into the local economy; and cuts down on the time, money, and packaging needed to ship the ingredients. Plus, Local Crate believes that their customers deserve to know the story behind the food on their tables!
Local Chef Partners
Every month, Local Crate works with different local chefs to collaborate on unique and delicious recipes for their customers to make at home. From James Beard award winners, to the owner of the best neighborhood taco joint, the recipes that are borne from these partnerships are creative and delicious. These chef-designed meals give customers a chance to flex their culinary skills, all while learning a bit more about a local chef or restaurant they may not be familiar with. This is just another way in which Local Crate works to connect their customers with their community.
Local Hunger Relief Efforts
The Local Crate team believes they have a responsibility to give back to the community and does so by working hand-in-hand with different hunger initiatives. From donating excess food to minimize waste, to initiating larger projects that tackle issues of healthy food access, Local Crate is deeply devoted to helping those in need within their community.
