Healthy, nutritious meals — cooked and delivered for free
Each week, our Twin Cities clients receive five days worth of meals, 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, breakfast cereal and Ensure — including all breads and baked breakfast items. We include sustainably produced, local and organic ingredients wherever possible. In fact, we’ve planted a three-acre garden that can produce up to 30,000 pounds of organic produce, a healthy portion of our annual veggie needs.
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.
