I bit into my Red Caprese sandwich made with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and roasted red peppers, and I marveled at it - a simple, yet absolutely delicious catered lunch option. Every lunch at Freshbox Catering is served with a pickle spear, Miss Vicki’s Sea Salt Kettle Chips, an apple and a chocolate covered Oreo (my personal favorite). They've thought of everything, even putting the basil pesto for my sandwich on the side, which is a small detail that I can appreciate.

Not only do they offer high quality food at a competitive prices, but Freshbox is also founded on a great mission: to empower the residents of Faith Mission Shelters by offering a competitive work environment focused on life-changing skills and training. This offers a long-term solution to those living in poverty in the Columbus community. Once an individual demonstrates the personal initiative to apply for a position at Freshbox, they are taken through a three step, six month program. The program focuses on building accountability and developing food service industry skills, so that the individual can be hired to fill local food service industry positions. By empowering the individual to attain a steady income, he or she can live independently.

This amazing organization is about to celebrate its one year anniversary on September 25. In conjunction with their anniversary, they recently rolled out their online ordering option , to make ordering even more convenient. So, now you have even one more reason to try them out for your next catered event.

And then you can be marveling at the tastiness of your Freshbox sandwich or salad, while feeling good about supporting a worthy cause.
