“When your next door neighbor dies, you call right away. You take over a casserole. It’s a natural progression,” David says. But what if that neighbor now lives across the country or busy schedules prevent a house visit?
MealGifts.com takes away the distance. Even if you can’t be there in person, it will feel like you are as your recipients enjoy a Southern-style meal and read your heartfelt note. This was David’s vision, and his company has been serving up comfort since 2007 while offering people a comforting alternative to flowers.
About our meals
We don't want to brag, but our meals are great. We are very proud of the quality of the food which is cooked in a gourmet kitchen then frozen in heat resistant containers. Once your recipient receives their meal, they simply peal back the film and throw the meals in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes (detailed instructions come with each meal).
Our meals, ranging from Chicken Marsala to Beef Burgundy to Lasagna, serve from 4 to 12 based on the package size. Each meal comes with sides and bread and some even come with desert and soup. When your recipient receives their gift, they will have plenty of food for the whole family, or they can cook the meal and have left overs for days. We don't skimp on the serving sizes!
About the process
We want to make using MealGifts.com as easy as possible for you and your recipient. You can browse our meal gift options or even buy a gift card for your recipient. Once a meal is selected you can enter the contact and address information for the recipient or you can just give us their phone number and we'll contact them to arrange the delivery schedule. Our kind and courteous support team (with our warm southern accents) will call your recipient and arrange the best time and location for them to receive the meal. The food is then prepared in a gourmet kitchen, frozen in heat resistant packaging, and delivered in an insulated box. The food is delivered by FedEx in a refrigerated truck and will stay frozen in the packaging for 24 hours until it is transferred to your recipient's freezer or oven.
Our customers love us
We get so much positive feedback about our meals and the entire experience. It's so satisfying to go to bed at night knowing that we've accomplished what we set out to do. Our customers love the food and the experience has been described as "exceptional" by our recipient's feedback. Here's a recent note that we received from a brand new customer:
"My first purchase was a success. The ordering process was efficient, the delivery was on time and the presentation was very neat. The recipient sent me photos. Most importantly my loved one who is recovering from surgery, loved it. She said the food tasted great and it was so helpful to her situation. We will most definitely be ordering from you all again. It's not everyday something goes this smoothly and successfully. Great job!"- Tasha H
