About Us

In 2015, we sought out to make delicious, nutritious food more accessible to more people, in the most convenient way possible. We sought to create an experience that made life easier for people – healthy meals that actually taste good, delivered to your door - no shopping, no chopping, no dishes. From there, Eat Purely was born.

With high food and business standards from the beginning, we sourced ingredients from local farms. We teamed up with talented chefs to bring delicious recipes to life every week. We began delivering meals to our family, then our friends, then our neighbors. Now Eat Purely serves the entire Chicagoland area. It's no surprise that we all want good food that tastes great, and food that is super convenient, and that's exactly what we're about.

Our Values

Our Food: Quality and flavor. 

Our Community: Chicago and the planet.

Our meals are created with the freshest, intentionally-sourced ingredients, never containing any hormones or artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives–simple, real ingredients with real convenience. When crafting our recipes, we consider what ingredients are seasonally available and what foods are both delicious and nutritious to create dishes you will love. Our food is made fresh daily, so we make it simple and convenient to enjoy meals that taste good and are good for you. 

Giving back to our community is in Eat Purely's DNA. Since our inception, we have donated meals to people in need. Whether it be the Chicago Public Schools system, the Greater Chicago Food Depository or our local healthcare system, we continually engage with our community leaders to determine how we can help provide access to healthy meals for those in need.

Beyond this, we know our actions have an impact. That’s why we respect where our food comes from, we’re committed to sustainable practices, and we are continually working to minimize our carbon footprint. As a food company, we have a responsibility to take care of our primary food source. Every decision we make is intentional and purposeful.

Our People: You and us.

Our mantra is that eating is individual. We are passionate about fueling you with great-tasting, nutritious food that fits your lifestyle. We want to give you time back to do the things you love – spend that extra hour with your friends, at the park, at work (if you need to!) – we’ve got your meals covered. Because we believe that when we eat well, we live well.

As we care about you, we care about our employees. Our staff is our family. Please know that 100% of the tip you provide goes to your driver.

We are committed to our food, our community and our people.

Our Mission

We exist to help people eat well because we believe that when people eat well, they are better equipped to live well.

More About our Commitment to Our Planet:

The decisions we make are intentional and purposeful. While we are doing our part to protect our planet, we know the job is never over. That’s why we are continually evaluating and adopting new business practices that enable greater sustainability:

We thoughtfully source our ingredients to ensure everything we use in our cooking is free of hormones, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.

You’ll notice seasonal ingredients featured in our menu items, allowing us to harness nature’s current and freshest outputs while providing the nutritional support our bodies need. Our packaging is recyclable.

We use an air-tight seal on our meals to not only keep contaminants out but to maintain the quality of our food and lock in its freshness, leaving it fresh for up to four days.

Our goal of zero food waste is supported by our trained staff, meticulous inventory systems, and proactive menu planning; any unsold meals are always donated to community members in need.
