About

Three main purposes for this Kickstarter:

1) To support the successful launch of OCDeli's delivery operations and zero-waste food & drink services. This will create an extra 'cushion' while we perfect the product market fit & recovery systems for our food & drink delivery & container pick up process.

2) To raise awareness of our live event, with world renowned Dr. Michael Greger, physician, author, and professional speaker, in San Diego on October 22, 2017. Education is one of the last obstacles to living a healthier life. Promoting our partnership with Dr G (featured in What The Health, & Forks Over Knives) will increase the likelihood of more people learning about plant based diets and becoming interested in the vegan way.

Lastly) Because. Our world, this country, we are all in dire need of more motivation and leadership in the sustainability and reusability spaces (especially when it comes to food). We really shouldn't test mother nature. OCDeli is already influencing restaurants to change their business practices. By your contribution, we will help people consume healthier food in a more eco-friendly manner. With your help, supporting this project can have amazing ripple effects. And you can come out of it with some really great products.

          Every dollar raised for OCDeli is going towards the creation of the most eco-friendly meal service ever created. OCDeli produces 40%-50% less greenhouse gasses and carbon emissions than traditional restaurants and standard meal services because of our plant-based menu. PLUS OCDeli saves more than 120,000 pieces of trash and plastic per year, per location, by using stainless steel bins and mason jars.

Just look at the difference you can make with one of our individual meal bowls:

          OCDeli is vegan, meaning our menu uses 10x less water and 50x less land when compared to a standard non-vegan restaurant or delivery service. And our goal is to help influence other vegan restaurants (vegan and non-vegan) to start implementing more sustainable practices for getting customers the food that they want and the food their bodies want, in a manner that best supports the life on this planet.
          We must curb the prevalence of single use of items (like disposable containers) especially when used multiple times a day (eating and drinking). It's time the food industry joins the sustainability wave that the transportation and energy industries are beginning to ride. Helping OCDeli will help us all :)

Let's be a part of the solution and help put an end to the problem.

OCDeli's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable eating.

Risks and challenges

OCDeli has already launched and currently, I'm the sole employee, so this will help me hire new talent to expand operations. Depending on how much we raise from this, I can get more space to prepare food, and more space to store and clean dishes. We are up against deep pockets (like the meat and dairy industries) and so being supported is the best help I can ask for.

My goal is for all supporters of this campaign to receive their bowl & bag orders by the winter holidays. I'll be building out a temporary team to help fulfill these orders when shipping starts and more hands are needed.

If this campaign goes viral it would be a tremendous help in our ability to serve more people, in more areas! The biggest challenge is getting people to this site. You found your way here, and we now need your help in sharing this project on social media, and talking about it with your friends. There is a high chance of someone you know wanting to back this project, but we need your help in getting supporters to this site. With your support, success is possible! :)

I'm always open for questions.
Thanks so much.
