Cheffing for Families, May 29, 2013

IMG_4708I am asked often if I can deliver food for families and until this week I could not quite figure out a way that made sense.  Yesterday we did a trial with one family and are planning to start providing food for a handful  of families on a weekly basis.  We will work closely with each family to determine preferences, take care of any eating restrictions and meet any health goals.

This is the plan–– on Wednesdays (this day of the week was chosen to coincide with Path Valley Cooperative Farms delivery) we will deliver a variety of vegetable, grain and bean dishes as well as a just out of the oven whole grain bread, a couple snacks, a no sugar high protein breakfast and a low sugar dessert.  The idea is that that these items can be meals or complement a simply cooked piece of fish, chicken or meat that the individual families prepare themselves.  All the food will last for a few days.  This is the way that we eat in our house and are excited about sharing it with others...
