Prep Chef for Healthy Meal Delivery Homecooked Hygge

  • Date Posted September 29, 2022
  • Location Denver, CO

  • Job type Part-Time
Company description

At Homecooked Hygge, we believe the real secret sauce to a vibrant life is simple, seasonal and mouth-watering dishes. We deliver freshly-prepared, local and seasonal whole foods to heal mind, body and spirit. All dishes are crafted with love and infused with principles from Ayurvedic wisdom and Danish hygge. Our menu selections change weekly and seasonally, and are designed to support people at various stages of life. We also offer small-scale catering services for organizations and retreats. 

We are deeply committed to environmental responsibility. We source our ingredients from local farmers as much as possible to limit transportation. While we do include meat in some of our recipes due to its healing benefits, we focus on plant-based foods and keep our carbon footprint down. We offer a subscription-based model of food delivery to control volume and prevent food waste. We deliver food in compostable or reusable packaging. We concentrate our delivery days by geographic location to minimize our ecological impact. Our current delivery area includes Denver, Boulder and the surrounding towns in Colorado.
