Prepd Pack - The Lunchbox Reimagined

$1,439,098

Lunchtime: It’s the most difficult time of the day to control what you eat. 

Eating out, or getting takeout, can get costly — and it’s virtually impossible to know exactly what’s inside your food.

That's why we created the Prepd Pack, a revolutionary new take on the humble lunchbox.

From planning and preparing your lunches, to tracking your food’s nutritional value, Prepd Pack and its integrative app makes the entire process easier, more enjoyable, and less wasteful.

Beautifully designed, Prepd Pack is uncompromisingly modern, consisting of a main case that houses a versatile modular system of containers and smart magnetic cutlery.


The removable modular containers are central to Prepd’s functionality — corresponding to each day’s needs, these individual food compartments can be combined in multiple configurations within the Prepd Pack. Made from the highest-quality materials, the containers are food-safe and completely leak-proof.

Our immersive app makes prepping your lunches for the weeks ahead simple. We partnered with professional chefs and nutritionists to create an evolving library of recipes tailored to fit a broad range of diets, appetites, and health goals.

All available recipes are designed to fill the modular containers, perfectly — making meal prepping less complicated, and, by eliminating unwanted food waste, more efficient.

Get ready for a simpler and smarter grocery-shopping experience — our app will take care of organizing shopping lists, so you’ll know exactly what to buy the moment you get to the store.

The Prepd app will be available for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, and will be free for all backers.

Finding calorie counting difficult? Relax — the Prepd app does all the math for you. By filling your Prepd Pack (and tummy) with our mouthwatering recipes, you’ll gain instant access to precise and in-depth nutritional information.

All collected data is stored within the app, giving you meaningful on-demand feedback about your diet. The app will also connect with HealthKit on iOS, allowing you to conveniently navigate all your health and fitness information in one place.

The app is filled with prep-friendly meal plans, making batch cooking extremely efficient — just imagine preparing a week’s worth of lunches in under an hour.  

Developed by experienced meal preppers, these original plans are delicious and ingeniously diverse, making your everyday meals exciting and uniquely different.

We've done the hard work, so you don't have to. Bon appétit!

The modular glass-clear containers nest perfectly atop one another, making fridge storage neat and (since you can plainly see what’s inside each container) insightful.

Have your lunch ready to go when you are — order multiple sets of containers and prep ahead for as many meals as you want. 

Save time for other things, like enjoying your morning coffee.

Joining the Prepd community lets you connect and share ideas with people who, like you, are passionate about food and health — a place to discover endless amounts of tips and tricks for prepping better lunches.

By creating your very own profile page, you’ll be able to browse the interactive library and save recipes to curate your own meal plans.

Homemade lunches are infinitely healthier — keeping both you and your wallet in better shape. With the Prepd Pack you can enjoy a delicious lunch and save money. *Spending values obtained from the 2015 Lunch Survey by Visa.

The ever-increasing amount of plastic packaging is exacerbating the environmental footprint. Unlike takeout, using the Prepd Pack is completely waste-free 

We don’t just talk the talk, we’re serious about sustainability. In an effort of tackling climate change, we’ve chosen to manufacture the Prepd Pack from high-quality recycled and eco-friendly materials.

Take part in the fight for our planet. Cut down on unnecessary food waste by preparing your own lunches and controlling exactly how much you consume

The Prepd Sleeve add-on will insulate your Prepd Pack with a layer of premium fabric-lined Neoprene (a flexible, heat- and wear-resistant material, used for making wetsuits) — providing extra protection and ensuring your food’s temperature stays consistent during longer commutes.

The Sleeve’s stylish strap also allows you to carry the Prepd Pack in one hand, effortlessly and securely. Personalize your Prepd Pack’s color, choose either Stone Grey, Charcoal Black, or Prepd Blue.

Freeze the cold packs overnight and clip them inside your Prepd Pack to keep your food cool and fresh for even longer. Seamless and unobtrusive, the cold packs easily dock along both sides of the Prepd Pack without taking up any usable space.

Though a labor of love, bringing Prepd to where it is today was a long and challenging journey. We’re already in the final stages of development, but we now need your help to bring Prepd fully to life.

The money raised on Kickstarter will go directly toward the final tooling, first production run, and completion of the app

Years in the making, and leaving no stone unturned, we have meticulously considered every functional and aesthetic detail of the Prepd Pack.

We are really excited about bringing the Prepd app to life. And not without reason — more than a simple recipe bank, the app will help you regain control over lunchtime, hit health goals, and stick to resolutions.

Our app’s UI design is clean, is easy-to-navigate, and is cross-device functional. Plan your meals on your iPad, then get your shopping lists on your iPhone — and Android devices too!

We are a team of award-winning designers and engineers united by a common goal of making healthy living easier and more enjoyable through good design.

Risks and challenges

Production - Our team is experienced in both design and manufacturing and we have developed the product together with our trusted suppliers from day one. However, you won't settle for a mediocre product and neither will we, so we won't be compromising on quality in order to save time. Should any issues arise we promise to keep you updated every step of the way.

App Development - Part of our motivation for choosing Kickstarter was to gain feedback on your most desired features for the app. Although we have already completed our first prototype and outlined a plan for how the final app will function, additional time may be needed to develop additional features.

Growing our community of experts - We currently are working with a number of chefs, dietitians and nutritionists to help build and curate the content for the App. It's our goal to build a wide range of recipes and plans to suit everyone and we will be working hard to continually expand the variety by partnering with specialists in different areas.
