uberfood truck delivers organic meals to La Jolla homes

By Ashley Mackin

When La Jolla resident Lisa Barnhouse-Gal wanted to find a way to feed her family on nights when she is uber-busy, she had a hard time finding one that was healthy, locally sourced, organic and easy.

That’s why she started uberfood, the new food delivery company that freshly prepares meals and delivers them to a home or office, though the home deliveries only began last month. A working mother of two boys, Barnhouse-Gal said she saw the need among her friends, who were becoming reliant on pizza and burgers.

The company prides itself on ease and the ingredients used; the meals contain locally sourced, organic produce and free-range and hormone-free meats and seafood.

With uberfood, participants order the meals on Sundays and they are delivered on Wednesdays. The meals will stay fresh through the weekend. “I’ve tested that many times myself,” Barnhouse-Gal joked.

The menu rotates based on the season and what is fresh, and dinners feed four to five people, and come with a salad, vegetable, protein and starch. Dinners average less than $20 per person.

Currently only serving La Jolla, uberfood plans to expand delivery days and then geographic area. To see the menu or place an order, visit
