Mouthwatering Meals

Eat well with our home cooked meals prepared in our large commercial kitchen. Always using fresh ingredients, you’ll enjoy every mouthwatering bite.

Mother Lode takes great strides to improve the quality and sustainability of our kitchen. All of our meals will be made with the freshest, best tasting ingredients, using organic products whenever possible.

Our kitchen has partnered with local homestead farmers to recycle our food waste. Their homestead hogs will benefit from the food scraps! Our goal this year is to eliminate 50% of the garbage waste from our kitchen.
