Delicious Fresh Vegan Food in Phoenix, Arizona

Hello and thank you for visiting Community Cuisine – the place to get your vegan food in Phoenix – delicious, healthy and affordable.

Vegan Food in PhoenixI am your community cook. That’s something like a personal chef for a group of people who eat similar foods. I am happy to have the opportunity to serve vegan food in Phoenix AZ.

My community of customers likes food made from scratch. Food that is prepared with fresh, nutrient-dense ingredients, mostly organically grown and from a local source if possible. Therefore, I use a great variety of plant-based ingredients. Vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds and a wide range of spices and herbs. Eating such a spectrum of plant-based vegan food may help you with health and weight issues. At the same time, you enjoy the richness of flavors of clean ingredients. That’s my customers tell me about the way we prepare the food.

I love feeding people.

It is a very personal thing for me to make the food you organic, vegan food, community cuisine, GMO freeeat. I feel privileged to provide it to you. It makes my life meaningful to contribute to your well being and enjoyment by making healthy foods tasty and fun to eat.

There is a more serious side to my love of feeding people. I am acutely aware of how many people in our city live in food insecurity. As many as one out of seven seniors, one out of four children may go to bed hungry on any given day in our beautiful Valley of the Sun. I believe that most people are interested in improving this grueling statistic that consists of many individual tragedies, but may not know how.

On my search for a way to engage in a solution, I became intrigued by the Non-GMO ingredients, vegan food, organic, community cuisineconcept of the “One World Everybody Eats Cafe”. I believe our awareness needs to grow to shift from a problematic situation to one that works. That’s why I’m planning to start such a community cafe myself. This cafe is a place to practice new attitudes towards food. It allows us to address the issues of hunger, food waste and health in a new way. I see Community Cuisine as a place where one comes to eat not just to satisfy one’s appetite, but also take an active part in our community. My invitation to you is to participate in what I have to offer in any way that meets your needs.

    Wonder food! So excited to have found Ingrid & Dan. Made my first pick up tonight and stayed for the community dinner as well. I feel blessed. Met many loving diners and Kithchen helpers too.
    So impressed. I am grateful that real food prepared with care is no available to me regularly. Thank you Community Cuisine! Your newest fan! Andy

    I’ve been a customer for a bit over 6 months and am as much impressed with Community Cuisine as when I first started. What a convenience and money saver! I no longer throw out salad makings because I can’t use it all and no way am I as good a cook. 😄 More important to me are the concept behind Ingrid’s venture, her friendship and the camaraderie at the community dinner. Thanks for all that you do: Ingrid, Daniel, Richard and all of the staff!

    Hi Ingrid, I was not able to order for a couple of weeks, and wow did it show me how much I appreciate your food and your service, to be able to have fresh organic food waiting for me all ready to eat sitting in my fridge all week long is so wonderful.. I mix and match and add things and I know I am eating great healthy wonderful tasting food and I am not wasting food my buying too much and throwing food away when I don’t finish all of it!! Thank you thank you for your service and I hear now that you do delivery….awesome!!!

  5. Beth says:

    I enjoy all the dishes from Community Cuisine but the lemon raspberry cake served recently was especially creamy and delicious! Thanks Ingrid and crew for making such wonderful, healthy food!

  6. Donna Delahanty says:

    My passion is also feeding people and cooking vegan Ingrid. I wish you much success with your endeavor. 🙏🏻💗

  7. Tricia says:

    First time ordering. I always wanted to hire a healthy cook. Really looking forward to this new life.

    I can not express enough of my gratitude for Ingrid and her entire staff who work so hard to prepare healthy food and then give to others in need every Monday. I love every recipe that I purchase and look forward to the next menu. I have fibromyalgia and about to start school and work full time so this service is going to be especially important to me since I have to find short cuts with daily activities during this busy time to prevent flare -ups. Also, since the food has no preservatives or refined sugars, my body will have reduced inflammation as well. Strongly recommend this food service which supports the local community and is much cheaper than ordering from online food prep websites. Get the word out 🙂

  9. Mary Walczak says:

    OMG – you’re my lifesavers! I can’t tell you how important your service is to me. I was introduced to you about 2 months ago and I rely on your food. It’s so tasty, nutritious and healthy and the best is, since money is very tight, I no longer waste food, throwing away what’s spoiled because I had to buy a big package or so many items just to make one dish and didn’t get to it or to use it all. You save me time and money and you take care of my “diet.” Thank you so much for all that you do!

  10. Lori Koch says:

    Oh my goodness, I love what you’re doing! 🙏 Registered for July 11th dinner. What days/hours do you offer take out? Thanks!

  11. sara says:

  12. Tobias says:

    Where and when do you do the community dinner? And how many people do you need to come to our house and prepare dinner for us

  13. Holly says:

    Love the beet burgers, reheated w/a little coconut oil the sauce is amazing….ps…need more almond lemon cookies….!!!

  14. Cheryl says:

    Hello Ingrid! I love your wonderful ideas and thoughts you have on everyone needs to eat. It is so true that so many people go hungry and don’t have the financial ability to buy food and prepare it. How does your food once prepared get to those who are in need or want to purchase your food? Blessings, love and gratitude for your kind heart. <3

    • Daniel says:

      Hi Cheryl, thanks for your feedback! This is Daniel, Ingrid’s husband. At this point we have cooked food for people who had an immediate need to get fed because of their current situation i.e. there were sick, just gave birth or any other situation in which we thought having our food would make a difference. Other than that people join us for community dinner: to get fed… no questions ask. It’s a pay-as-you-can dinner and we never check how much people give. We often have left overs and end up giving those to volunteers (who we always need to setup and clean up community dinner). We are always improving what we do… this is where we are at as of now.
      I hope that answers your question. Cheers, Daniel

  15. Christine says:

    THANK YOU! Without the Community Cuisine team, I wouldn’t be eating healthy. Thank for you the delicious and diverse food!!

  16. Rachel Carson says:

    Thank you Ingrid and Team for the always delicious, creative meals! I so appreciate the concern about the quality and nutrition of the food you provide and I love that you are always thinking of new ideas like the 7 layer/large salads (amazing!!). I’m now a soup convert, a fennel lover, a cabbage lover (who knew 🙂 and there are too many other favorites to mention.

    Ingrid & Daniel, you are truly kind with huge hearts and passion. Thanks for all that you do!

  17. itsLISAhere says:

    I am grateful for you all. The delicious food that comes from this kitchen makes my life easier. Thank you for the nutritious, delicious tasty sensations you create. I know every bite I eat is filled with love & healthy nourishment. Thank you, thank you for my daily bread!

  18. Ingrid – I’m crazy for your stuffed cabbage! Thank you!

  19. Valerie Lane says:

    This was my 1st week ordering food through Your Community Cook. It was amazing. I work long days and it was nice to have healthy vegetarian meals already prepared. I order enough for the entire week. I have recommended this site to many of my friends.

  20. Carolyn says:

    This was my first time the food was awesome. Best ever food I was so inprss. The place makes you feel like you are in there home.

  21. I cannot express how grateful and humbled I was by chancing upon you, simply by looking for healthful food while at a real estate convention this past weekend where all they offered was fat-laden, sugar doused JUNK. And then I see how you care so deeply about others and give so much of yourselves, asking nothing in return. I was truly humbled by what I saw. I promised you that if I could photograph you I would post it in my Facebook page. I did that, and I placed your website there, too and told people that when in Phoenix they had to go visit you and eat the ONLY good food they will experience while at the Convention Center! Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and for what you do for our fellow human beings!

  22. Trish Connelly says:

    There are no words to express the gratitude that is in my heart for the love and passion that Ingrid puts into her cooking. Recently a friend shared the with me and I was blown away that I was able to get a weeks worth of meals for my husband and I for less that $100. But my amazement continued as each day we began to feel stronger and more energetic. Our weight is decreasing our blood sugars are decreasing and people are commenting on how much better we are looking. I can think clearer which is important as I am currently working on my masters degree. People ask if we are dieting and I tell them no, we are just eating good wholesome food made with love by Ingrid. The food is full of flavor and beautiful to look at. I have been telling all my friends and family to come and dine. The food is amazing and the service is too. I love the Sunday Community Dinner. Ingrid thank you and promise that you will continue with your dream because you are amazing and you have given us the chance that we needed to learn the benefits of good wholesome food. Thank you
    Love always,
    Trish and Fabio Connelly

  23. Feli says:

    I’ve never met someone (Ingrid) who appreciates every ingredient so much! Definitely food filled with love — it doesn’t get much better than that. Oh wait, it does! Because the people that go along with it are so awesome.

  24. Shay says:

    This is a diamond find! The cost is beyond reasonable, the food is healthy, the preparers make it with love! Glad to have heard about this through a friend, highly recommend this service and the community dinner!

  25. Cheryl Dennis says:
