What can food
do for us?


Made with purpose. Each dish strives to nourish the body and uplift emotion.

We think healthy eating involves fresh, nutrient-dense foods, that are both tasty and satisfying. We need to feed our mind as much as our body and tasty + experience are critical. To feel genuinely nourished, the final ingredient required is care.

We work night and day to bring you clean, simple, ingredients, that are always Non-GMO — sourced mostly from local growers and in peak season.



Eating and Feeling are Connected

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him... the people who give you their food give you their heart.

-Cesar Chavez

Slow down.

Hello. I just discovered your Halva which is the best I've ever had anywhere. So, rather then buying it at on of your retail dealers, I was just wondering if I could drop by and get a larger amount for myself at wholesale. I live in the Hollywood Hills (By larger, I mean like in pound size, or whatever.) Let me know and thanks.

Just had your dreamy creamy sesame. I could eat that every day! Thank you again for finding a way to get vegan (and raw) food to the CSUDH community! Your food is the bright spot in my day.

THANK YOU! I am head over heels in love with your food. As a vegan, I was often left with no options here at Cal State Dominguez Hills, but not only do I now have options, it's delicious!!! So very grateful for your work, especially in this place that used to feel like a food desert. Thanks for not forgetting the ones who are sometimes neglected.
