At Narrative Food (formerly known as Out of the Box Collective) we believe nourishment comes from way more than calories, proteins, and fats. We are also nourished by food memories and culture, by our community, and by our friends and family. Our approach to healthy food happens in the context of a healthy food system and a healthy community.
Narrative Food carefully considers how the food in our boxes was grown and produced, as well as the stories of the people who grew it. Each week Narrative Food Provision boxes are curated around the stories behind local, seasonal ingredients and food makers. They inspire so many different recipes, from different cultures, traditions, restaurants and chefs -- and these stories, in turn, create the lasting memories for our customers. We also work with cutting edge technology to help our customers explore how the narrative written in their own genetic code impacts which specific foods best support their wellness goals.
Narrative Food has been delivering nutrition based well-being to 1000 zip codes across SoCal every week since 2010. We source small batch organic foods -- produce, pastured meats, wild caught fish, heirloom grains and some of LA’s most iconic prepared items like bread, halva, kimchi and more. Every box is accompanied with recipes designed to inspire and delight our demanding customer base. We also provide optional services to complete the food deliveries: Home Chef services, and personalized meal planning to support your wellness goals.
