One Million Meals Served!

Just three years ago we started our journey to transform the food system the same way McDonalds’ did 50 years ago, but instead of burgers and fries, we’d serve fresh, made-from-scratch meals. Today we celebrate and thank you, Los Angeles, for allowing us to serve 1 MILLION healthy and affordable meals! We share this milestone […]

Just three years ago we started our journey to transform the food system the same way McDonalds’ did 50 years ago, but instead of burgers and fries, we’d serve fresh, made-from-scratch meals. Today we celebrate and thank you, Los Angeles, for allowing us to serve 1 MILLION healthy and affordable meals!

We share this milestone with our guests, community partners and the LA businesses who fiercely believe that healthy food is a human right. You supported this mission from Day 1, by showing up at our first grab and go restaurant in South LA, and you’ve continued your support by bringing our SmartFridges into your workplace and subscription boxes into your home.

On behalf of the entire Everytable Team, THANK YOU for joining us on this journey. We look forward to serving millions and eventually billions of healthy meals across Los Angeles and the country. We’re just getting started.


Sincerely,

Sam Polk
Founder & CEO

We are honored to be featured in the May publication of LA Magazine, which ranked us first in the article, “The Best Meal Delivery Service for Every L.A. Palate.” In the roundup, author Steven Blum named the Everytable Subscription Service as one the best meal delivery services and premade meal subscriptions in LA.

“Best known for its brick-and-mortar locations, which sell fresh restaurant-style meals priced to fit the average income of the neighborhood in which they are located, Everytable now offers subscription plans as well. The meals are tasty, and they’re pretty affordable, too: Order spaghetti squash and meatballs or Cajun blackened fish with braised collard greens and sweet potato puree for $8 in Brentwood (or $6 in South L.A.). Pickup is free, and if you’re within a five-mile radius of any store, you’ll pay less than $5 for delivery.”

We’re excited to be listed as one of the best meal subscription services in LA amongst some other great services. We’re equally excited that we’re the only option on the list with healthy, chef-made meals starting at $5!

Homeboy Industries, an Inspiration for Everytable and for All of Us

As the 4th anniversary of Everytable and our fight for food justice approaches, I’m inspired to share how my friendship with Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries, an LA-based social enterprise, served as a catalyst for our business.

As the 4th anniversary of Everytable and our fight for food justice approaches, I’m inspired to share how my friendship with Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries, an LA-based social enterprise, served as a catalyst for our business. For more than 30 years, Homeboy Industries has helped formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women redirect their lives to become contributing members of the community. If I had never met Father Greg, and discovered his heart-led approach to business, Everytable would not exist today.

Before Everytable, I was a hedge fund trader on Wall Street making millions. But something was missing—I felt like my work didn’t matter, and I didn’t like my place in the world.

After I left Wall Street, I read Father Greg’s book, Tattoos on the Heart, and was deeply moved. Months later I had an idea for an organization that would support people struggling with food insecurity and obesity, something I could relate to from my childhood. I reached out to Father Greg to see what he thought of the idea. He loved it, and invited me to start it at Homeboy Industries.

Father Greg gave me the confidence to start Feast (formerly known as Groceryships) a nonprofit organization providing nutrition education, fresh produce, cooking classes, and emotional support for families living in food deserts, that has now spread all over Los Angeles, New York, and many other states across the country.

It was through my work with Feast, working in South Los Angeles, a neighborhood with per capita income of $13,000 per year and life expectancy 10 years lower than Bel Air, that I came to understand the needs of working moms. Many of them – who often had several children and multiple jobs- were hungry for a restaurant that would provide fresh, healthy food with the same convenience and affordable prices of fast food. That was where the idea for Everytable was born.

Over the years Father Greg has been a mentor and a tremendous inspiration for me in this social justice journey, and his heart and counsel have very much shaped the mission and values of Everytable. In fact, every newly hired Everytable employee receives a copy of Tattoos on the Heart, and we sell copies at all of our locations.

So, it’s with profound enthusiasm that I announce a new collaboration between Everytable and Homeboy Industries. Our chefs teamed up with the women of Homegirl Café, a division of Homeboy Industries, to develop a bold new dish that will launch on May 30 at all Everytable locations. One dollar of every bowl of Homegirl Salmon Adobo sold in June will be donated back to Homeboy! We can’t wait for you to try it, and help us give back to an organization that his given us so much.
