Our meals are $6.99 each. We have 8 special diet menus and our regular senior meal selection that you can view below by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
A quick explanation of our meal service:
Our meals are prepared fresh, never frozen. You choose off the menu what your want. There is a minimum order of 7 meals. You can also order 10, 14 or 21 at a time. It takes approximately 7 days to process your order. Between 7 and 14 is the recommended amount of meals to order that takes up approximately the same amount of space as 4 loaves of bread in your refrigerator. Meals are guaranteed to stay fresh 14 days from the day you receive them. They’re shipped in a box with ice to stay fresh, and when you receive them, open the box and just place them in the refrigerator, not freezer.
At mealtime you remove the plastic lid, place it in the microwave to heat and you have a meal. If you don’t finish the serving, attach the plastic lid and finish it at a later time.
Eating the right foods can help people to stay mentally sharp, emotionally balanced and full of energy while keeping a positive attitude and maintaining a healthy immune system. Older people may eat poorly for reasons ranging from lack of desire or skill to cook, poor appetite due to a boring menu selection to physical problems. Living alone most often results in an individual being unable to meet their dietary needs and forces them to make compromises.
Weight loss and poor diet issues are as much a problem as overweight in the elderly. Protein and energy requirements for older adults seem to be higher than for younger individuals. Also, higher supplementation is necessary during an illness, health condition or after surgery. Once an individual reaches his or her seventies and eighties well balanced diet would generally be beneficial.
Motivation to cook a balanced meal for one’s self coupled with the natural physical limitations related to aging can make preparing meals monotonous and even challenging for a senior. Cooking a meal that’s both appetizing and nutritional is quite an undertaking when you figure in the time to prepare an entree and side dishes. Preparing single meals is expensive and wasteful. Our meal plans offer a nutritionally sound approach to healthy eating for older adults.
USDA approved and inspected FRESH food preparation and delivery of nutritionally sound meals. Meals are FRESH (not frozen), ready to heat and eat.
Utilizing cutting edge USDA technology, without the use of added preservatives, we guarantee 14 days of freshness after delivery.
All deliveries are made in coolant packed containers the week after an order is placed. You do not have to be home to accept delivery.
Studies have shown that an individual who is malnourished when admitted to a hospital tends to have a longer hospital stay, experiences more complications, and has a greater risk of morbidity and mortality than a well nourished person with the same illness whose nutritional state is adequate.
It is great to know there is a program that deliveries FRESH nutritious meals.
