Our Story


Our food system is deeply flawed. San Diego County has more small farms than any other county in the United States, yet the majority of San Diegans have no idea of the world class produce that’s grown locally. This is primarily due to an antiquated food distribution system that is not compatible with small farmers. Our mission is to connect you with local food.


Driven by our mission, we take the initiative to connect directly with local farmers
to procure the ingredients that we serve to you.



LuckyBolt’s journey began in 2003 when it’s founder, Kris Schlesser

it’s next to impossible to maintain a healthy diet when you’re busy.
