"Green GrubBox is now Encora!"


A Encora subscription provides you with the most sustainable way to enjoy take out from some of your favorite Green Dining Alliance restaurants. You can enjoy good food knowing you’re not contributing to the waste stream.

Encora is a free service for users. We take a $5 deposit each time you check out a container. Once returned, the money gets credited back to your account. We never store your credit card information on our servers.

You can sign up on a computer, but you’ll need to download the app to use a Encora.

Once you have the app and created an account, order your food from a participating restaurant and request a Encora.

When you pick up your food in a Encora, scan the QR code on the box and you’re good to go! Enjoy your food!

When you’re done with your food, find a Return Station on the app or website. When you are at the Return Station: open your Account page in the app (the gear icon at the top) and View Box History. Click on the box your are returning then scan the QR code on the Return Station and drop in your box! If you are able, please rinse your box first.

The Encora will be picked up, washed in a commercial kitchen, and be ready to be used again!
