A project to bring attention to the independent restaurants, farmers, producers and chefs that we love during a time when our actions can mean the difference in the survival of a local business. When you purchase a Clover Meal Box (meal box for 2- or 4- people, excludes Drinks and Build Your Own boxes) you’ll get a little something extra – as a gift from us and people whose work we love.
