Local Crate!

Since the start of this race for Mayor, we have been the one campaign consistently talking about creating good paying jobs for all—and that is why we are big supporters of this week’s Twin Cities Start Up Week

There are so many great start-up ideas at the Twin Cities Start Up Week and one that we love is Local Crate!

Local Crate is part of the Techstars program hosted by Target and is founded by food entrepreneurs Frank Jackman and Mike Stalbaum. 

Local Crate takes fresh, local ingredients and creates dinner or meal kits from chef-designed recipes, and delivers right to your home.  Their tagline is ‘Simple Meals. Cook Happy. Eat Local.’

Not only do you get great food and food ideas, but also entertaining videos that provide inspiration and instructions so that you can make a home-cooked meal with some of your favorite local chefs.  (Last week Gavin Kaysen’s recipe and video was a huge hit last week through Local Crate).  Think Blue Apron but better…with local ingredients and food forward innovation from right here in Minneapolis!

Please try Local Crate for your next meal. Your order will help support and grow our next great food idea from Minneapolis.
