They are priced the same so that the customer may purchase the meal up front and allow the recipient to select the meal of their choice after the purchase is made.
Because our meals are prepared family style the minimum order is two servings. Our meals are intended to provide support to families, not parties or larger gatherings so we set a maximum of 8 servings. We have trays available for larger gatherings.
Unlike the meals, the trays are priced individually so you cannot purchase a tray and allow the recipient to select the one they want. However, a recipient can change an order if they choose. The amount paid by the customer would be credited to the recipient and they can use it to select another tray or meal. They can also reschedule delivery if they choose. Gift cards are also available.
Absolutely! Just order the family style meal of your choice and we will have it delivered to you.
An order can be changed with enough notice (please see below), but an order cannot be cancelled for a refund.
Yes, Family style meal orders can be changed up until noon of the day of delivery.
Tray orders can be changed with 48 hours notice.
