The Denver Box is a curated food and drink kit for 4 people, from local independently owned restaurants for $100. 50% of the proceeds goes to further the work of local Nonprofit Partners of The Lion Project. Each box will have a QR code linked to a video telling the story of the nonprofit that your Denver Box is supporting that month.
From the Denver Box and The Lion Project teams we thank you for supporting your local community and keeping hope alive during a difficult time.
Featured Chef & Restaurant Owner - Lisa Altenburg
Lisa Altenburg was raised in Columbus, Ohio and graduated with a degree in corporate finance from Clemson University. After college graduation, she spent close to one year travelling throughout Australia and New Zealand before starting her corporate career in the mortgage industry.
Lisa moved to Denver, Colorado in 2004 to work for Clayton Fixed Income Services, formerly, The Murrayhill Company. At Clayton, she managed a team who provided mortgage and real-estate market risk management solutions including residential loan due diligence and servicing oversight. In 2006, Lisa took a position with Janus Funds and worked in the Corporate Finance department, where she worked on allocations and produced the internal monthly management report.
Prior to Lisa’s career in corporate finance, most of her experience was in the hospitality industry. Growing up in a large Italian family, food and entertaining were always a priority. She likes to say that the industry “gets into your blood and you can’t shake it.” Lisa always had a dream that she would one day own her own business in food service; so when she met Yvonne Lo, previous owner of Y.Lo Epicure Catering in 2008, she decided to follow that dream.
Over 12 years later, Y.Lo Epicure Catering is still thriving as a premier corporate and custom catering company in metro Denver. Lisa has grown the business over 700% since the purchase by offering exceptional food quality and customer service. Y.Lo Epicure Catering was a finalist in the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce small business awards and also won Top Denver Caterer by the 7news A-List Contest. Lisa’s passion for the food service industry and lasting relationships with employees and clients are the perfect recipe for success!
Outside of Y.Lo Epicure Catering, Lisa has been able to give back to her community by serving on several non-profit boards including, Girls on the Run, Cherry Creek Chamber of Commerce and Wishbone Foundation. With her background in corporate finance and experience running a successful small business, Lisa has proven to be an asset to these organizations. She is also very committed to her personal health and fitness and remains physically active with golf, skiing, running, hiking and yoga. Most importantly, Lisa spends all of her free time with her husband Dax and seven year old son Riggs.
During COVID we wanted to do something to support our community and The Denver Box gave us a great opportunity to support restaurants, nonprofits and visit with friends. Not to mention the food is so good. Oh and reasonable in price.
I love having a great meal with some close friends. Plus the food is easy to make and super good.
My wife an I love the Denver Box. We get to try new restaurants in the middle of COVID and do not have to worry about contracting the virus. Not to mention the food is amazing!
