Menus

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

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.

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 our dietitian at 612-767-7332 with any questions.
