Chewbox, founded by Chef Roy Choi and Kim Gaston, is a food delivery service focused on healthy, chef-driven meals and job opportunities for underserved communities. Chewbox started as a pilot program for teachers who only had 30-minute breaks and unhealthy lunch options. Meals are made and delivered from Choi’s former Locol kitchen in Watts, and the program is now open to the public during the pandemic. The goal is to take the program across the country.
