Menus

Our meals will strengthen and comfort you – and they taste great!

We offer several menus of entrees for you to choose from, and each option can be further tailored to fit your individual dietary needs, such as food allergies or religious beliefs. Contact Nutrition Specialist Brianna Elliott at 612-767-7332 with any questions.

Our professional chefs prepare our delicious meals in-house using fresh and, when possible, organic produce. In fact, many of the fresh veggies come from our urban garden.

We deliver your entrees frozen, so you have the flexibility to choose when you’d like to enjoy a meal. In addition to entrees, each delivery includes fresh fruit, sandwiches, salads, desserts, snacks and a half gallon of milk.
