food as it should be...
healthy. wholesome. real.
There are a variety of factors affecting health, but your food choices are perhaps the most influential of all. That’s why here at Outside the Box, we’re striving to encourage improved community health by providing healthy, wholesome food offerings in a safe, welcoming, comfortable, and inspiring environment. Our foods are always 100% gluten free and dairy free (or at least a dairy free option). We emphasize the use of organic, locally-sourced, and hypoallergenic ingredients, and our specialties include grain bowls & green bowls, soups, smoothies and a bakery.

OBX sponsors and supports children in South Africa who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Sponsorship through Horizon International helps provide school uniforms, medicine and food. Regular mission trips to South Africa are taken to help foster relationships with these kids by providing guidance, education and leadership through vacation bible schools and teen retreats. Please join us in helping these vulnerable children with their daily needs. Thank you.
