How do I prepare the meals at home?
It varies from item to item, but here are some general guidelines. Entrees in bags can be microwaved, boiled in a bag or opened and heated in a separate container. Entrees in oven containers can be removed from the bag and reheated in an oven at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. All products requiring heating should be warmed to a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Can I pick up both weekly meals at one time?
Yes. Please let us know you would like to pick-up both Tuesday and Thursday's meals on Thursday; however, the meal for Tuesday should be consumed first. Thursday's meals cannot be picked-up on Tuesday due to it's shelf-life.
How long does the food stay fresh?
Meals should promptly be taken home upon pick-up. Immediately prepare, refrigerate or freeze. Under proper refrigeration, the meal should be acceptable three days from our preparation.
Why doesn't Meals 4 Home provide condiment packets, napkins, or salad dressings?
Our objective is to be responsible stewards. Unused packets and paper products may end up in the trash. Extra labor to order and inventory items increase costs. We believe in minimizing waste. Besides, everyone has personal preferences.
