A co-operation of San Diego artisanal food businesses, including Maestoso Foods and Gelato Love, have launched Craft Box, a subscription box service delivering locally-made, healthy foods directly to San Diegans’ doorsteps. Craft Box aims to support small businesses who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, many whose main sales outlets were once-robust farmers markets, and who may not have websites or the ability to sell elsewhere.
During this time of social distancing and business closures, Craft Box’s founders believe it is important to have daily access to real, healthy food. Craft Box includes such products as take & bake pinsa from well-known chef Marco Maestoso, raw pasta from Monzu Fresh Pasta, coffee from Seven Seas Roasting, plant-based snacks from Aya Raw Foods, gelato from Gelato Love,
Coyotas Tortillas and more. All products are hand-made by real people who own small, artisanal food businesses in San Diego.
San Diegans can order a “Mixtery” Craft Box for $50 here; within a few weeks customers will be able to fully customize box contents. Express delivery is available for those seeking food within twenty-four hours. Follow along on Instagram at @craftboxsd.

On a mission to find innovative ways to continue to provide healthy, delicious, and clean-eating options for folks at home, Urban Plates has waived Door Dash delivery fees; initiated Curbside No Contact Pickup; launched Family Meals (“ready to eat” and soon “heat and eat” full dinner spreads that feed 4); and now—exclusive to the San Diego market—Fridge Stockers. Also on offer: 50% off all bottles of wine, and beer growlers available for take-out and Curbside No Contact Pickup.
Ready to Eat Family meals (serves 4, available now to order Door Dash, take-out or curbside, no contact pick-up) – If you’re looking to get a family dinner on the table ASAP (ready to eat), Urban Plates is helping with their new family meals; meals include mains (think cage-free
chicken, grass-fed steak, sustainable salmon) and two sides (like mac ’n’ cheese, rosemary roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts, etc.), plus fresh baked bread.
Heat and Eat to come – on the docket to launch soon, Urban Plates is also introducing a “Heat and Eat” option, where these same meals arrive chilled to allow you to stock up for the week to come and skip that grocery run (heat and eat options have a 4-day shelf life refrigerated).
Providing healthy, clean, minimally processed whole food meals at affordable prices is at the forefront of all that Urban Plates does – prices for family meals range from $39-$52, which nets out to as low as $10 per person and no higher than $13 per person
Health Fact: every Urban Plates location has a blast chiller (a pricey piece of kitchen equipment that allows you to take a hot dish and drop its temperature quickly – which helps the integrity of taste and is a premium safeguard in ensuring healthy temperature regulated food)
Fridge Stockers (San Diego only): Understanding a grocery run isn’t always an option nor easy for everyone, Urban Plates head Chef Jim Cannon developed these Fridge Stockers – chilled proteins, salads, sides, braises, soups, and healthy juices that you can enjoy right away OR keep in your fridge for up to 4 days. Items include cage-free grilled ½ chicken (4 servings, $9); scratch-made sides (4 servings, $8) like beet salad with goat cheese, organic brown rice, asparagus with garlic shallot drizzle, and more; fresh salads; and warming soups and braises like Moroccan Chicken Braise ($15) or Curry Tofu & Vegetable ($15)
Stay healthy, San Diego!
