We had the good fortune of connecting with Abner Stephens and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Abner, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Food is an essential to life. Not only does it provide nutrients that helps us grow, it is also a love language. As a chef and owner of Love Box LLC I connect people to food by creating a variety of dishes whether plant based, grass fed, turkey based, or etc. No matter what someone is going through the taste and smell of their favorite meal brings a smile to their face. Nowadays people or students aren’t having access to proper nutritions. We partnered with a local non -profit organization to provide healthier food items. We also dedicate sessions on meal prepping to promote healthier eating for people with diabetes.

Food is love and love is food. A meal can turn a depressed moment into a joyful moment. A meal is apart of everyday life and celebrations. Love Box is honored to be apart of creating meals that touch hearts and souls all over the community and the world.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I pray and clap for others. I got here from hard work, believing in my self and staying prayed up. Our brand /story is Love is Love! Share the Love! Love yourself!
