Fresh Face: Lancaster Local Provisions
Owned and Operated by Chef Diana Smedley and her fiancé and business partner, Gabriel Luber, Lancaster Local Provisions is a weekly food delivery service offering peak season produce & local artisanal goods. The business which was started just a few months ago as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, aims to make local, nourishing food affordable and convenient.
The young pair however, are not new to the food trade. Two years ago Chef Diana launched Hot Spoon Preserves, which specializes in handcrafted fruit spreads, conserves, and chutneys, which are low in sugar and made with seasonal produce & ingredients from Lancaster County.
When the pandemic forced Hot Spoon Preserves to cancel its seasonal market operations, Chef Diana & Gabriel, in the spirit of service, launched Lancaster Local Provisions.
The subscription service allows members to select a weekly Market Box filled with seasonal produce. Each week’s box is curated by Chef Diana and comes with simple recipes that utilize the weekly ingredients. Members can then customize their orders by adding-on locally sourced dairy & meat, pantry items and artisanal goods, which are then delivered directly to their homes.
Members also have the opportunity to take part in virtual cook-a-longs with Chef Diana. Each week these interactive, livestream sessions show members how to cook simple & delicious recipes in as little as 40 minutes. In addition to this, Chef Diana will be sharing educational content and quick cooking tips that are easy to practice in our busy lives.
Lancaster Local Provisions is currently serving Lititz, Mount Joy, East Hempfield & Manheim Townships. They’re planning to expand to serve all of Lancaster City and beyond, while strengthening their working relationships with local farms, makers and food pantries.
Chef Diana & Lancaster Local Provisions is on a mission to get people cooking and eating seasonally, using the best ingredients Lancaster County has to offer. They believe it’s important that we know where our food is coming from; and they have a vision to help create a sustainable, year round, local food system that will help preserve and protect our environment.
