Simply Good Jars
Simply Good Jars are chef-made, ready-to-eat meals in reusable jars that are good for you and the planet. Founded in 2017 in Philly—the birthplace of America, and his hometown, Chef Jared Cannon realized there was an incredible need outside of traditional eateries for faster, healthier, food options that are actually delicious. Jason left an 18-year career working for celebrated restaurants and growing fast-casual eateries to bring his concept to life. Simply Good Jars are durable, reusable, recyclable, and convenient. And for every pledge received to repurpose, reuse, or recycle their jars, they donate to a local food organization to help feed someone in need. With Simply Good Jars, together we can all eat well, feel good and waste less.
