The Conscious Kitchen is a farm-to-table prepared meal and grocery service, delivered to your door in Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Collingwood and surrounding areas. We care about helping our customers feed themselves & their families food they can feel good about- which for us means food that is fresh, locally focused, nourishing, and most importantly delicious.
Founded by Celeste Lopreiato, The Conscious Kitchen is a proudly queer, BIPOC, and womxn owned & run buisness. We create & cook all of our recipes with a small team, gathering ingredients and inspiration from local farmers & food producers, right here on our farm in Grey County (Saugeen Ojibway Territory).
Our menu changes weekly & seasonally, so that you will rarely eat the same meals twice, and we also have a great selection of curated groceries so you can create delicious meals at home. With our door-to-door delivery, we aim to make meal planning easy and convenient each and every week.
All of our products are always plant-based- but you don’t have to be! Many of our customers want to include more plant-based options into their diet, and we love making that easy!
Organic & Sustainably Farmed Ingredients
Almost all of our ingredients are sourced organically. We stand behind sustainable farming and preserving healthy farmland & soil.
Our goal is to source as many ingredients as locally as possible. We work with various local farms, and use seasonally available produce.

We order produce from Cedar Down Farm 9 months of the year, using about 350-500 lbs a week! It is run by Jeff Boesch and Leslie Moskovits and founded in 2010, located in Neustadt (traditional land of the Three Fires Confederacy of the Odawa, Potawatomi and the Ojibwe/Chippewas). They are certified organic, and use farming methods aimed to support and enhance the health of their soils and that contribute to the health and sustainability of their local ecosystem. They do not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides, herbicides or fungicides.
