Adventures in cooking at Lovage

Lovage cafe and meal kit company is raising funds to launch our take home meal kits. Our kits include everything to make a fabulous dinner.

About the campaign

In the process of opening Lovage, we decided to first open up for lunch to try out some of our meal kit ideas and made them into bowls, salads, pasta dishes and whatever we felt like eating that week. Our customers started enjoying them so much that we didn't have time to focus on our kits, but kept creating new dishes and getting feedback from our customers.

Now the time has come for us to launch our meal kits and crock pot meals.

The funding for this campaign will enable us to purchase extra refrigeration, buy a delivery van and upgrade our kitchen to offer this new service.

Or meal kits are pre-measured and prepped meal boxes that are ready to take home and cook. Most of our meals take about thirty minutes or less to cook but for the more adventures cook's they can try our Beef Bourguignon which can take the most of a long and relaxing Saturday afternoon to cook. Our crock pot meals are fresh meals that customers just place in a slow cooker in the morning and walk into a home filled with smells of savory cooking on time for dinner.

The funding for this campaign will enable us to purchase extra refrigeration, buy a delivery van and upgrade our kitchen to offer this new service. Our goal is to start with meal kits and crock pot meals but eventually bring in other chefs to create their own authentic meal kits which we will sell through lovage and at the same time creating a business for other food entrepreneurs. Our meal kits will be sold at Lovage in our grab and go display refrigerator as well as on demand ordering.

With your help we can reinvent home cooking!

About Lovage

At Lovage, our tagline reads, "Adventures in cooking." When we first envisioned opening Lovage many years ago, our hope was to create a space where we can help people get back to cooking and sitting together for dinner more frequently.

We ask many of our friends and customers to support our feeding families programs to provide meals to families in need. We give meal kits to families in need and we give them the tools to get back in the kitchen to cook.

Lovage was established in 2013, and is located in Seattle, WA.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
