On average, the total cost of what Lettuce delivers every week comes to less than what you would pay at the grocery store per serving. As an example, here's a breakdown of what's in the produce container for the dish Chicken Shawarma Salad.
Time consumed: Priceless
Carbon footprint: Significant
– Based on recent average grocery store prices for organic produce across the US.
– Prices for items such as herbs are per bunch, because that is how they are typically sold. But recipes rarely require more than a few sprigs.
Result: The remainder often rots in the fridge and needs to be thrown out. Lettuce includes only what a recipe needs – so you save money, time, space and avoid waste.
Not only is Lettuce better than all other meal kits - local, fresh with no wasteful packaging - it is also a lot more affordable. See for yourself!
We are reinventing the where, when, what, why and how of the way food is grown, packaged and delivered - eliminating efficiencies, while improving quality.
There are a whole bunch of unfortunate reasons that have brought us to a place where 'Big Ag' and 'Big Food' dominant our food chain.
We are creating a new economic model and supply chain that enables fresh, local food to reach people living in those neighborhoods, affordably.
