Healthy food needs healthy containers
I developed a habit of packing my meals and snacks to go so that I always had healthy food on hand. After my kids were born, rather than get stuck at a drive thru, I started packing food for them too. They grew older, started school, and, you guessed it…more food packing!
As the news emerged about the chemicals in plastic leaching into our food, I went on a search for alternatives—healthy food needs healthy containers. I was also concerned about the environmental impact of plastic. Millions of plastic sandwich and snack baggies are piling up in our landfills every year.
As much as I love glass, it wasn’t practical for packing food to go. It breaks, it’s heavy, and I certainly can’t send it to school. Stainless steel was the perfect material, but I couldn’t find stainless steel food containers anywhere—not online, not in restaurant supply stores, not in kitchen gadget stores. After a year or so of searching and not finding what I needed, I built it.
In 2008, I launched LunchBots from the garage of my home in Palo Alto, California. Prior to LunchBots, I worked at Apple creating some superb products. With LunchBots, I have the opportunity to combine my passion for healthy living with my love of creating innovative products
LunchBots is a family-owned business and our mission is simple: to provide the highest quality, best-looking, healthiest food containers on the planet.
