our story

We prepare and serve food in a way that consistently aligns with our core values, providing an unparalleled level of service and integrity in everything we do. From our workplace and event catering to our Fresh & Balanced Bowls, we use organic, local, sustainably grown and produced foods that bring forth superior quality and provide equal parts sustenance and pleasure.

 

Thanks to our friends at Typsy for this video!

We spend the majority of our lives at work. There’s nothing wrong with that as long as our lives are balanced, harmonious, and enjoyable. I personally LOVE work. In the past few years of building Green Heart Foods and partnering with companies to improve their workplaces, I’ve learned how we can raise the bar higher so that work feels better.
— Lisa Chatham, CEO

We curate cultures and build success.

 

Green Heart Foods CEO, Lisa Chatham, founded the business in her home kitchen with a passion for food and a desire to make a difference. The business took off immediately with word-of-mouth referrals. After years of outgrowing kitchens, Green Heart Foods now has a state-of-the-art kitchen facility in San Francisco. The Green Heart Foods headquarters is a study in making a difference in the food ecosystem while curating a satisfying workplace. Our employees enjoy some of the same perks our catered guests experience: a yoga room, beautiful lunch buffets, and a healthy work environment. We see first hand how culture affects the quality of work.


Giving Back

We know that what we do has an impact on our environment. That is why we partner with 3Degrees to off-set the carbon impact of our cooking and Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to off-set our electricity usage. We also contribute annually to the Pachamama Alliance, a global community committed to creating a sustainable future while protecting indigenous peoples and lands.
