About al FreshCo
al FreshCo has been in the making, in some ways, for years, as it builds off of the many
experiences Laurel, the owner, has had farming, researching food access, and working in global
commodity trade. The idea of the meal kits came together when she found herself prepping
meals for a pregnant friend, who she feared otherwise wouldn’t eat her vegetables. The prepping
left her friend no excuses; all she had to do was throw it in a pan, heat this, sauté that; and so
began al FreshCo!
Laurel started selling kits in Ireland, where she was working on a small vegetable farm. It turned
out to be a great growing season, and the farmer found herself scrambling to find alternative
markets outside her CSA demand. Laurel began using this excess to make her first meal kits, and
was thus able to give the farmer an alternative and flexible outlet for her excess crop, and also
was able to get a broader range of people eating fresh vegetables.
Boston, for Laurel, is home. Since February of this year al FreshCo has been operating in
Jamaica Plain. Connecting produce grown by responsible local farmers with her community
members, to enable families and friends to come together around hearty, healthy meals,
motivates Laurel’s hopes to reach more people with the kits.
