Standard service consists of an entree serving four people with appropriate sides. However all services are customizable to your needs.
Meals include fresh ready-to-serve meals along with ready-to-freeze meals for your convenience.
Come home to healthy delicious meals, prepared in your home, for your family to enjoy in just a matter of minutes. Our Standard Prepared Meal program consists of meals, completed to your specifications and palate, which can be either refrigerated or frozen to be re-heated in the next 1 to 2 weeks.
The most frequently ordered service is the 4 x 4. This consists of 4 different entrees of 4 servings each for a total of 16 meals. Many find themselves out of town on weekends, having at least one late lunch or dinner at the office, or becoming involved with other out of home events. Assuming you eat at home only 4 nights a week, this plan would provide a family of 4 with meals for a week or a couple with approximately two weeks of dinners. A popular choice for those who prefer weekly service is the 4 x 2. This provides 8 meals (4 different entrees of 2 servings each) perfect for a couple.
Other plan combinations are listed below. Larger plans accommodate families. If these plans do not describe your dining pattern(s) or meet your meal needs, they can easily be adjusted.
