As part of a life change, I started packing my lunch and snacks so that I always had healthy options. After my kids were born, rather than get stuck at a drive thru, I started packing food for them too. By prepping in advance, cooking extras for dinner, and washing and chopping vegetables on the weekends, packing meals became easier. The only thing missing was a safer way to pack our healthy meals. Concerned about chemicals in plastic containers leaching into our food, I went on a search for alternatives.

Stainless steel was the perfect material; it’s safe, lightweight, and non-breakable. However, I couldn’t find stainless steel food containers anywhere. After a year or so of searching for stainless steel food containers and not finding what I needed, I built it. In 2008, I launched LunchBots from the garage of my home in Northern California. LunchBots is a family-owned business and our mission is simple: to provide the highest quality, best-looking, healthiest food containers on the planet.
