Letter from the Founders
It all began over a cup of flour…
During the great grocery shortages of COVID-19, neighbors began sharing ingredients. Cathy needed flour, a neighbor knew Lisa had some, introduced the two of us and the rest is history.
We got to talking about our favorite local restaurants. While we were on the phone Lisa received a text from a local owner saying they had to close their doors. As Oprah would say- this was an “Aha moment!” How could we help these local restaurants that play such an integral role in the community?
Enter the Westside Food Fairy! We have hand selected restaurants to curate innovative menus. Our goal is to help drive revenue during these difficult times, and provide exposure for these restaurants. We also want to create higher standards for delivery, and ensure all food should be delivered SAFELY, with love and great care.
We will be giving a percentage of every purchase to participating restaurants that will go directly to employees who has been affected due to COVID-19.
Thank you for supporting these AMAZING local restaurants, and their chefs and teams.
We will get through this together, and together we will emerge stronger.
Lisa and Cathy
