The eco-friendly meal delivery service you can only get around here

By Tanya Edwards, published May 13, 2019

"Food people and busy people — or, in all likeliness, both — have all probably dabbled in meal delivery services like Blue Apron, Sun Basket, Needham-based Purple Carrot, or a CSA share.

"Family Dinner, a food delivery service founded in 2017, mixes the best of both. You sign up online for the share size that is right for your family, or you can pick and choose from a selection of farm fresh and seasonal meats, fish, dairy, and locally produced vegan options. They e-mail you recipe ideas when your order is on the way, and it’s hand-delivered in a reusable bag that you give back the next time you order. Almost everything is wrapped in paper. It’s that simple."

Sauce it Up!

This broth is so tasty it can be enjoyed plain as a beverage. Just heated in a mug it's warm and comforting - like a sweatshirt for your mouth.  If that isn't your cup of broth, try a few of these ideas:

Loving you, a Latke.

1. Tomorrow January 9th and Tuesday January 12th we will be collecting dry goods for La Colaborativa, a Food Bank in Chelsea, in addition to our new monthly giving initiative at Family Dinner.

A Farmer's Year, Part 1

A Farmer's Year, Part 1

Well, hello again! This is Shannon here on the keys. This may be a new year, but I’m still going to be talking about the way food is grown, because that’s all I ever want to talk about! This is part one of a two-part series about what a year looks like for farmers around here in New England. I spoke with our friends over at Kimball Fruit Farm and Iron Ox Farm about what a year on their farms look like.

How it Works

Step 1:  Choose your share. There's no commitment.  You pay week to week and you can skip or cancel at any time.

Step 2Curation. We carefully curate each week’s share and place orders with local farmers and food purveyors.  Each share contains protein, fruits, veggies and grains.  Tell us if you have any allergies or aversions and we'll make substitutions.

Step 3: Cook, eat, and enjoy! We deliver your share at the end of the week. You receive an email with a list of ingredients and recipes. Cook, eat, and share the delicious things you made.

What is in a typical share?

Each share contains protein, fruits, veggies, and grains, tailored to your share type and size.  We are happy to accommodate your food allergies or aversions. 

Our blog, This Week's Food, captures the ingredients, farmers, and recipes that are featured in every week's share. 

Here's a shot of the Omnivore Whole Share that was delivered to our customers on August 1st, along with a list of ingredients:

Proteins: Pork and Eggs from Feather Brook Farms; Yellow Tail Flounder from Red's Best; Greek Yogurt from Brookford Farm

Fruits and Veggies: Blueberries from Kimball Fruit Farm; Beets from Clark Farm; Swiss Chard from Brookford Farm and Drumlin Farm; Corn from Drumlin Farm; Greens from Generation Farm and Queen's Greens; Squash from Clark Farm
