Standard Weekly Service for Everyday:

$380 per cook-date + cost of groceries (Five meals)

$330 per cook-date + cost of groceries (Four meals)

$280 per cook-date + cost of groceries (Three meals)

$230 per cook-date + cost of groceries (Two meals)

Includes 2 to 5 meals with appropriate side dishes that are portioned for one to four people.  Additional portions, salads, desserts and extra sides are $20 each plus the cost of groceries.  There is a container fee which is an additional one time fee (see below).

Container fee:

Glass containers: One time fee - below -

$150 for Five meals

$120 for Four meals

$100 for Three meals

$80 for Two meals

These are recommended for all clients as they can be for single and multiple portion meals.  Customers on an extended service agreement may benefit from these types of containers the most.  They are freezable, oven-proof, microwavable, dishwasher safe and environmentally friendly as they rarely need to be replaced.

Plastic Containers:  Ongoing cost as long as service continues.

Reimbursement of cost each time new weekly containers are purchased.

These containers may be used again, however they lose their life quickly and may not be appropriately sized for the menu being prepared.  Therefore, they will need to be replaced on a regular basis.  They are freezable and dishwasher safe (top shelf only).  I do not recommend using them in the microwave.  These containers do not go in the oven.  When the dish is to be heated, it should be removed from the container and placed in an oven-proof dish or casserole that you provide.

All containers, once purchased, are yours to keep.
