People often ask - "Hey! Why isn't Aram's name on the label?" Yes, he's part of the fam(Margeaux's brother, Linda's son), he simply likes to remain behind the scenes. With a background in software engineering, business consulting and strategy, Aram remains to be our silent strength, support, and guidance, as we grow our wings. He's our humble genius and official taste tester. Willing to try almost anything ;)
Margeaux, along with her mother, Linda, is the creative force behind MLVK. An ex-professional contemporary ballet dancer from NYC, who has been studying health and nutrition for the last 25 yrs in hopes to understand further how to reach optimal performance and healing through food. It brings her joy to serve people fresh food that is reminiscent of the meals they can't or choose not to eat anymore. "When I get a call or an email from a customer thanking us for doing what we do, I'm reminded that no matter how small of a service making healthy food is, it still makes a difference."
Linda, (the mama bird in the family), is the energy source of the kitchen. Flitting about, day in and day out, she is always cooking - For everyone! She loves to feed people and nurture others through food. With a history deeply rooted in opera and fashion, she makes cooking an effortless form of art. "Working with Margeaux and creating food for MLVK has brought me a different level of understanding around what it means to feed one another. You can feed your family and friends , or you can look at the world as the family you get to feed."

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.

HI...so just picked up your lemongrass coconut thai curry from (Mothers Long Beach) Wow, ladies you have out done yourselves! Thank you, not that I haven't already eaten it but you don't need to cook the noodles right....Im sure raw vegan wont kill me?...probably the lack of self control will get me first?

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 how 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.

Hello, I would like to ask will you ever sell you products in the Long Beach area again. Whole Foods, Gelsons or some other retailer. I really love you products but I cannot drive to Lassens on La Brea just to sit back in traffic to get it back home. Even the salad dressings if you can at least sale then here. Downtown LB 24hour fitness would be a good outlet.

Your food is divine. I was lucky to walk in the coop in Santa Monica and taste everything! I bought the Lemongrass coconut thai curry and it's amazing. I also bought the carrot humus for later! I am looking forward to enjoying more very soon! Thank you.

I just spoke to Margeaux about the pepita pesto wrap-it was sooooo delicious. I had not been feeling so well today and now I’ve been overtaken by a feeling of well being - thank you for your delicious creation!

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.

My son broke his leg playing tennis for UCLA(he is an OCD Paleo)He and I tried your delicious meals at a little market in the Palisades. They were awesome. I will buy him these until he heals...he loved them all even the hummus. I haven't had a paleo yummy meal like this ever(I tried to be paleo for him but it didn't last) anyhow Im looking to see where I can find this yummy fresh food for myself now......you have motivated me. Thanks.
