When it comes to the health and sustainability community, there’s no shortage of awesome people to rely on for support, information and innovation. What was once a movement is now the norm, and there are new and exciting initiatives developing every day. One such is a company that we’re incredibly excited about, Vital Supply Co.

An initiative founded by Reuben Major, Braden Matthews and Mack Davis, three individuals with a combined 30 years of culinary experience, Vital is an innovative take on food delivery that places as much emphasis on health and integrity as it does on flavour. Their food is locally sourced, dairy & gluten free, with no sugar added, and each meal is balanced with key nutritional components that are curated to refuel and reenergize with maximum benefits. On top of that, they source all of their meats from Two Rivers Meats, an MGF favourite!


A remarkable and unique aspect of Vital’s service is the technique they use to cook their food. All food is prepared using the Sous-Vide method, which relies on precise temperature control to lock in both flavour and nutrients.

With menu options like Flank Steak with Chimichurri and Seasonal Vegetables, Purple Carrot and Brussels Sprout Salad with Chicken, and Coconut and Oat Banana Pecan Pancakes (did we mention they do breakfast, too?!), there’s truly an item for everyone.


Ideal for offices, gyms and fitness studios that are tired of the lack of healthy lunch options, Vital is a saving grace. The website allows for easy ordering, and the kicker is, they deliver it right to your fridge (which they also provide).
