Glory Box. Est. 2020

Hi, we are Lucas and Meghan, founders of Glory Box. We were both born and raised in Alberta.  One of our favorite summer activities to do together is to frequent local farmers markets.  

Once we had our first child it became harder to access locally sourced products. Now with physical distancing and limits on people in public spaces it has become even more difficult to access some of our favorite items. That's why we launched our company Glory Box.

We have always been concerned with sustainability and supporting the local community.  We know consumer spending choices are in our our hands and as shoppers we decide which companies grow, scale and succeed. 

Where did the name come from?

Contrary to what some may think the name was a spin off of one of my favourite dishes my wife makes, the Glory Bowl. It's a mixture of roasted vegetables, Sweet potatoes, onions, beets, toasted almonds and rice, sooooo amazing. When a coworker asked what was in it? I replied with a bunch of glorious stuff. Thus Glory Box was born.
