About The Lancaster Food Company

We started The Lancaster Food Company after years of friendship talking about, well, many things. But there were two common topics: how to have significant impact on the City of Lancaster, which has a 30% poverty rate, and the other was food—making it, sourcing and supporting the best of it, and, of course, eating it. We feel strongly about reducing poverty in the U.S., and feel we can do our part here in Lancaster by paying better than living wages, and by hiring people who might otherwise have difficulty getting work because of obstacles like legal records or educational gaps. And we love food. Craig's lifelong affair with food includes obsessing over how to make just about everything from scratch, from dry-cured chorizo to wild yeast sourdough starter. Charlie's lifelong affair with food includes eating lots of it, and once hosting an organic CSA, starting community gardens, and attempting to improve the public school meal system. We both recognize the deep impact of food on people—on our health, the economy, and our delicate ecosystem.
