#FitStrong: Plantbased Eats Delivered Directly

With hectic work demands and social calendars, Vancouverites have taken to outsourcing the task of feeding ourselves. Let’s be honest, who likes doing dishes?

By the time we get home from work, yoga, the gym, networking with the team — who has the time or energy to make dinner, much less prep lunch for the next day? To meet this need, culinary entrepreneurs have stepped up to the plate.

Presenting Vancouver’s top plantbased — or mostly — meal delivery companies of 2017:
