Lancaster Fellow Foodies
Making healthy dinners easy while creating meaningful jobs and advancing eco-friendly farming.Fund This Idea
The ProblemHealthy food takes time to cook and Lancaster is in need of high quality jobs for residents with barriers to employment, as evidenced by a 30% poverty rate in the city.
The SolutionWe deliver meals that are easy to prepare with minimal effort because there is no shopping, meal planning, prepping or cooking involved. You simply place your order and once the meals arrive, you place one in a crockpot and dinner is ready when you arrive home! To produce and deliver the meals, we will hire Lancaster residents who would otherwise struggle to find meaningful work, and pay them thriving wages, because all it takes is one good job to move a family out of poverty.
What makes us the right fit?
Our team is made up of 2 Fellow Foodies that struggled with this same problem for years. Combined, we have spent over 25 years working in the food industry as a health coach, nutritionist, chef, server and organic farmer; creating connections in all areas. We believe everyone deserves to eat great food that is good for them, the community and the earth. We can’t imagine doing anything else.
