Frozen Meals

The frozen meal program has become a popular alternative or supplement to the traditional hot meal delivery. One advantage of the frozen meals is the ability to select your own menu.

View the complete Frozen Meals Menu here.

Frozen meals are presented in a cardboard container which can be placed in the microwave or oven. Each meal is labeled with cooking instructions as well as ingredients.
