Sustainable sourcing

The Love & Plates “eat local” philosophy.

We believe knowing where your food comes from is just as important as choosing what you eat. That working closely with the farmers, butchers, and makers who produce our raw ingredients allows us to provide the freshest, most nutritious meals for our clients. Local and small businesses are the backbone of our community, and it is our mission to support them the best way we know how.
