Little Green Box

A box with ingredients + recipes to prepare 4 meals per week

About the project

You want to eat healthy but you do not necessarily have time to go groceries shopping?

You want to eat good Belgian and organic products but you do not have time to go through all the farms in your area? Every night you open the door to your fridge and wonder what you're going to eat tonight? Then Little Green Box is for you! :)

 

LITTLE GREEN BOX IS A BOX WITH:

All necessary ingredients * to prepare 4 meals per week:

  • For 2, 4 or 6 people
  • Recipe cards full of little tricks
  • Good Belgian products
  • Good seasonal products
  • Good organic products
  • Simple family recipes
  • An express recipe (less than 20 minutes of preparation)
  • Three recipes of maximum 45 minutes of preparation
  • Max 2 recipes with meat
  • To prepare all alone or with family
  • With minimal waste!
  • And lots of other surprises!

* Excluding salt, pepper and fat (olive oil, butter ...)

 

The products are mainly produced by Belgian producers, the short food circuit, organic agriculture, and these are mainly seasonal products. But why mainly? Because we will sometimes need to go through a distributor for non-Belgian products, because we will also work with a few producers who may not be certified organic but who work in sustainable and reasoned agriculture. What is certain is that more than 90% of the products will be Belgian, organic and seasonal!

But not only ! Priority will be given to bulk products in order to get as close as possible to zero waste, and how we collaborate with producers is also different from the norm: instead of ordering, for example, 200 kg of potatoes and 1000 Pieces of carrots, producers will dictate what their freshest products are. It is from here that we will create our recipes and not vice versa!

 

 

And yes ! We want to highlight products and creations made in Belgium! That's why we are working with several projects in sustainable development (not just food), such as Green Peas, a zero-waste grocery store in Court-Saint-Etienne in Brabant Wallon, KITETIK , Kits to make your own beauty and maintenance products, and Le champignon de Bruxelles, a cooperative that uses organic waste from Brussels breweries to grow mushrooms in the capital!

These projects and many more will be put forward through monthly contests to win different products, as Little Green Box likes to pamper its customers ☺. Moreover, the recipes will not only be created by our team but by guests, to offer you different ways of cooking such as, for example, the gluten-free week, the vegan week or even the Paleo week!

What are the funds for?

The recipes are ready and the collaborations with producers / processors / creators are underway. For boxes to be physically created, Little Green Box needs your help!

 

Principle of crowdfunding:

For those who do not know it yet, you can contribute to the project by choosing one or more of the counterparties to the right of this page ----->

You can also participate in this project by making a free contribution.

 

So that the first Little Green Boxes arrive at your place, we need a minimum of 8.500 EUR.

This will:

  • Buy semi-professional photographic material (case + zoom + tripod + reflector) to create photos that will make you want to taste our recipes (and yes, because the pictures taken with a smartphone are not always nice ...): 3.150 EUR 37%)
  • Purchase small kitchen equipment to complete what we already have, in order to create new recipes that you are going to looove: 720 EUR (8,5%)

  • Give the commission for Ulule: 680 EUR (8%)

 

If we get to 11.000 EUR, the fans of the videos will be enchanted! We can then produce the first videos of the recipes so that those who are more visual can also follow the complete recipes on their tablet, smartphone or laptop.

About the project owner

Who is behind Little Green Box?

Szandra, 32, happy founder of Little Green Box (but also many collaborators who decided to support this project in sustainable food!).

It all started in 2014, when my son was born. Vegetarian and sometimes activist, ecology and cuisine have always been an integral part of my life. But after the birth of Hugo, my whole world turned upside down. After 10 years of career in different multinationals, I fall into a burn out that allowed me to make a big STOP and realign my values ​​with my lifestyle. With a fresh catering diploma in hand, Little Green Box was born. Now I need you to give me the extra "boost" needed to bring this project to life!
