Prep To Your Door
During the pandemic, we’ve served 77,000 meals in 3900 jars. YES, you read that correctly. We are a zero-waste business, in which we serve ALL meals in mason jars and pick the empties up each week when we drop off the new jars, like the milkman! Along with our zero-waste mission, we donated almost 1500 pounds of extra meals each week to less fortunate people in Austin. We’ve composted over 5000 pounds of scraps that would otherwise end up in landfills. We’ve saved over 170,000 pieces of plastic from landfills and oceans. We are so proud of what we do for our community: Fresh, organic, farm-to-table meals delivered right to people’s doors, which was instrumental in 2020 when people were scared to leave their homes. We’ve purchased over 40,000 pounds of Texas-grown produce, circulating around $65,000 back into our local farming communities. We recently proposed to make 9,000 meals at-cost to feed lower-income areas within the city as a part of Austin’s “Healthy Corner Store” program to increase food-access. We provide health, dental, and vision to all employees, both part-time and 1099 workers. We get to have so much impact because of the ease and simplicity of mason jars (and a lot of team work). Without Ball, we would not have a business. We are so thankful for quality glass containers that allow the ultimate convenience for our customers. Thank you!
