HOME DELIVERED MEALS

Our founder, Monty, created HOME DELIVERED MEALS in response to requests from our customers. They wanted a meal that could be delivered either hot or frozen. Our company was the first in the state to produce and deliver portioned oven-ready meals. All meals meet the latest DRIs for Indiana and come to you either fresh or frozen. These meals are designed to be nutritious, vibrant, and tasty as well. This program gives you the flexibility to match not only meals to specific clients, but also to various delivery options as well. HOME DELIVERED MEALS are available for purchase as individual meals, 2-packs, or 5-packs. We can also custom design a multi-pack meal for your program as well.
