What began as a company known for catering and pop-up events in early 2018 has evolved into a shipping container café that promotes “a kinder way to eat.”

Located in North Kansas City’s Iron District, Kind Food serves plant-based fare for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Also open for a vegan-friendly brunch on Saturdays, the eatery’s notable dishes include banana French toast made with two slices of bread from Farm to Market Bread Co., a wrap filled with housemade crispy coconut “bacon” and the warming Kind Curry bowl loaded with chickpeas, cauliflower, sweet potato, bell pepper and onion cooked in a creamy yellow curry sauce and served over fluffy seasoned quinoa.

Chef-owner Phillip Jones uses neither animal products nor processed meat or cheese substitutes in his cooking, sourcing locally grown and organic produce whenever possible. Along with his wife, Jonelle, he aims to bring a healthy dose of delicious food to the local community and perpetuate kindness to animals, to the planet and to one another.
