WHY PREPARED MEALS ?
We are all at the mercy of circumstances that are out of our control. BUSY LIVES combined with BAD FOOD options leaves us little choice but to COMPROMISE OUR DIET. Most folks, if given the opportunity, would eat better if tasty, healthy options were convenient and readily available. Meals from Scratch proudly announces that we are offering exactly that – a tasty, convenient, healthy option – PREPARED MEALS with a PURPOSE
Meals from Scratch was created in early 2012 with the goal of providing a better prepared meal than what existed in the grocery freezer. As it turned out, with fresh ingredients and a great chef, its not too tough 🙂 As you can imagine, the big names in the industry have given prepared meals a bad rap by putting out questionable meats with obscure fillers, boring carb-laden starches and barely a smattering of anything resembling a real vegetable. Meals from Scratch is not to be confused with the average “Frozen Dinner”
We are all aware of the impact of a compromised diet on our health. In the last 20 years we have seen an epidemic of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. This is the direct result of high fat, high carb, sugar laden foods dominating our dining choices. In reality, unless you research, shop and prepare your own meals, you will have a difficult time finding healthy options.
OUR HISTORY & INSPIRATION
If you have heard enough and just want to get to the meals – CLICK HERE
Shortly after our first month in operation, we would meet our first and most important client. This client, who would eventually become nothing less than an all-in partner, filled us with inspiration and gave us purpose enough for a lifetime. The Pink Ribbon Girls charged us with the responsibility of feeding their members, a constantly growing group of individuals battling breast and female reproductive cancer. Meals from Scratch would help support these courageous individuals, giving them and their families convenient meals and nutritional support – allowing them to focus on getting through treatment without worrying about meals for themselves and their family. In early 2012, Meals from Scratch was preparing a dozen meals a week and supporting a handful of families. Currently, we are shipping over 1,000 meals per week, supporting nearly 100 families at a time.
We’ve come a long way… Nowadays we work with dietitians and doctors with Kettering Health Network and Premier Health (Miami Valley Hospital). Our meals are used by Bull Diabetes Center as well as KHN Cardiologists and numerous Assisted Living and Home Healthcare facilities.
