Filoli and The Town Kitchen are partnering to offer you delicious, fresh, local food — and create meaningful community impact in the Bay Area.

The Town Kitchen is a mission-driven food delivery company that employs, empowers, and professionally and economically elevates foster and reentry youth in the Bay Area. By providing these primarily 18-24 year-olds with jobs, living wages, career help, and mentorship, we provide them with opportunities beyond The Town Kitchen.

We use compostable and recyclable packaging
We repurpose leftover food by working with organizations serving neighbors experiencing food insecurity
We source seasonal and local ingredients to minimize impact on the environment
We source from local women and minority-owned businesses to elevate the local food ecosystem
