  • Our Story

    Inspired to create office food that is worth feeling good about, Jessie Gould created OX VERTE — a forward-thinking food company that caters to the health-conscious and hungry alike.

    Our Mission

    Our mission may be grand but our methods are humble. We want to make real food an everyday occurrence, and offer wholesome meals that can nourish our bodies and nurture our communities. To tread lightly, but eat like an ox.

  • The Ox Grain Bowl

    healthy while hearty

    Grain bowls have been around a long time. We're building on the tradition of this simple dietary staple by offering an array of local and organic ingredients that change with our seasonal menu. Think of it as an evolution of 'make your own salad' with heartier options prepared by a chef that you can combine to suit your palate or dietary needs.

  • The Ox Kitchen


    With sustainability in mind, the OX kitchen works with suppliers that provide seasonally-relevant, organically grown ingredients, rather than having out-of-season or, unnecessarily organic produce shipped-in. We are a small company with an opportunity to make a big impact, a responsibility we take to heart.
