Healthy, nutritious meals — cooked and delivered for free
Our Twin Cities clients receive a week’s worth of meals at a time, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. We believe that eating delicious, nutritious meals helps make our clients’ medicines and treatments more effective, so they are able to lead healthier, more independent lives.
With that goal in mind, our chef and dietitian work together to create a variety of menus that not only meet the nutrition needs of our clients’ diseases, but also taste delicious. All of our food is cooked in-house — with the exception of items such as crackers, granola bars and breakfast cereal — including all breads and baked breakfast items. We include sustainably produced, local and organic ingredients wherever possible. In fact, we’ve planted a garden that produces lots of tasty veggies for our kitchen.
Volunteers are integral to our work. We offer opportunities to cook, bake, deliver and, now, plant and harvest food. Volunteers love working with us because it’s fun, meaningful, and they can immediately see and feel the impact of their work.
