The Integrated Frozen Prepared Meals and Groceries Program is our core service. We strive to serve each client with as many as two meals per day, year-round, from a combination of made-from-scratch meals and groceries, and/or nutritional supplements. Our focus is on balanced and individualized nutrition, and our menu selections feature a broad variety of items, including chicken, pork, fish, and beef, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, pastas, rice, and legumes.
Clients receive an individualized nutrition plan created by our Registered Dietitian, which is used to guide food order selections. Our menu changes every two weeks to reflect seasonal variety.
Meal selections are driven by each client’s specific health status and dietary needs.
Our Dietitian and Chef work in tandem to develop menu selections, and clients order from a changing menu every two weeks. We also provide nutrition supplements (e.g., Ensure) to clients if they meet eligibility requirements.
Our made-from-scratch meals are prepared in our commercial kitchen, and then flash-frozen for clients to store at home. Meals can be re-heated in a microwave for ease of preparation.
All menu orders are filled in our Nutrition Center. Selections consist of a combination of groceries and made-from-scratch meals. Menu selections are trans fat-free. The Nutrition Center is open four days a week, including five hours on Saturday and Tuesday evenings, for maximum convenience.
Clients fill out a new grocery menu every two weeks. Homebound clients receive a two-week or one-month delivery of meals to their home, depending on their location. Rural clients receive monthly deliveries.
