Power Supply - Fuel for a Powerful Life

Sep 10, 2013 01:33AM

Power Supply, provider of chef-driven prepared paleo meals, recently announced that it has joined forces with Mindful Chef, which delivers paleo-inspired and vegetarian meals to yoga and specialized fitness communities.  

Under the Power Supply brand, the company will serve a variety of active lifestyle consumers, including those at CrossFit gyms, yoga studios, multi-program gyms and other intentional fitness communities, where members are looking for tasty, convenient, healthy and nutritious meal options to fuel their active lifestyles. Power Supply and Mindful Chef currently deliver to 46 locations in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Customers do not have to be members of a specific location in order to pick-up there.  

“The prepared meals world hasn’t really reached beyond its diet- and weight-loss centric roots,” says Patrick Smith, Power Supply founder and active D.C. entrepreneur. “With this step, we’re putting together a unique mix of technology expertise, food service know-how from fast-moving areas like the food truck world, culinary expertise and understanding of new eating approaches like paleo. The result will be a more engaging, intuitive and tasty eating experience for active folks—from ordering to enjoying their food each week.”  

Since 2010, Power Supply has created and delivered more than 250,000 meals to active and time-starved professionals in the Capital region. Mindful Chef founders, Jeff Kelley and Joshua Kriger, followed a similar path in starting Mindful Chef. After teaming up in the food truck world where Kelley founded the popular Eat Wonky, the two turned to prepared meals with a focus on clean eating for conscious consumers, including soon-to-be and new mothers, vegans and people with gluten and dairy intolerance.

The combined meal offers will debut in the fall and feature continued emphasis on responsible, local ingredient sourcing, as well as support for local causes through the Power Supply Giveback program. The program donates one percent of all company proceeds to local non-profits, including the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture and Microgreens.
