WECO was founded in March 2020 as a way to bring light to our local community during the dark days of the pandemic, creating a whole new way to dine at home.
Our chefs transform fresh ingredients from farmers and purveyors we know and love into delicious dinners, which we hand-deliver every weekday. No subscriptions or minimums, just a whole lotta love!
WE ARE BRINGING Back the Dinner Table
Why? As a society, Americans are spending less and less time gathering at the dinner table at the end of their day. With work schedules, commutes, and simply life in general, there’s little time to plan, shop, prep, cook, and clean. WECO’s mission is to help reverse that trend, and get families to come together around a healthy, fresh, delicious dinner, from the farm to our chefs to your table.
To create a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle for our chefs
Chefs often work brutally long hours, nights, weekends, and holidays hidden away in kitchens. They rarely get recognized for the beautiful food they create. WECO provides a healthy, positive work environment, fair hours and pay, and recognition for the team who works so hard to create great food.
To support our local farmers
WECO sources as locally as possible, as often as possible! We are not about industrial food that is shipped long distances to sit in a warehouse, prepared in a factory, frozen, then shipped to you in the mail (in massive amounts of packaging).
To educate consumers about the food they eat
The food industry lacks transparency about the sources, cost, environmental impact, sustainability and ethics of the ingredients that go into your dinner. WECO embodies the concept of mindful eating through our ethical sourcing, responsible cooking practices, and transparent pricing.
To Solve Food Waste
30–40% of food produced in the US is wasted each year. WECO operates a close-to-zero food waste environment because we order precisely the amount we need to serve our customers each day.
To Give Back
WECO donates dinners to local families who are food insecure, directly and through organizations that support hunger relief. We also donate to hundreds of schools, teams, and community organizations in the neighborhoods in which we operate.
