About Us

+BOX is on a mission to open pathways to healthy, local, sustainable foods.

Established in April 2020, +BOX was created in response to rising food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic. +BOX officially launched at Ocean Knoll Elementary in Encinitas, CA, supporting 50 families with fresh, healthy, nutrient rich food. Since then +BOX has grown to support hundreds of families each week across more than a dozen school communities in San Diego. +BOX was created by cross-industry entrepreneurs with a bias towards building an innovative program capable of driving healthy change in the food support system.

Our Vision

Collaborate with local communities to build a healthier food assistance system that provides every child the opportunity to open a box of fresh, nutritious food.


Our Values

  1. Compassion: We care about our community and everyone in it, and are committed to helping those who struggle to access essential resources.

  2. Ingenuity: We approach our work with creativity, flexible thinking, and innovation.

  3. Balance: We strive to bring balance to our work, our lives, and our community

  4. Accountability: We are accountable to each other, our partners, our supporters and the communities that we serve.

  5. Responsiveness: We are both receptive to new ideas and perspectives, and prompt to react in an ever-changing environment.
