Food startup, leCupboard, is set to release a series of vegan vending machines across San Francisco. The launch will take place in August, with the exact locations not yet specified.
leCupboard have a chain of high technology, automatic restaurants, which serves food through a series of iPads and lockers.
leCupboards pretty-looking food offerings, like chia pudding breakfast jars, lentil salads, and zucchini noodles with walnut pesto, all in nicely-designed to-go boxes.
Founded by Moroccon entrepreneur Lamiaa Bounahmidi, leCupboard is the customer-facing portion of her company Looly, a public benefit corporation which boasts over $2 million in funding according to AngelList.
leCupboard’s social mission is “turning our food system right side up.” That means we can expect the vending machines in places where healthy options don’t currently exist. That could be educational areas, hospitals, and offices.
Until leCupboard’s new vegan vending machine locations are revealed, you can find them at 1298 Church Street which is open Tuesday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (closed Mondays).
