Mom’s Meals is a leading national provider of refrigerated, home-delivered meals and nutrition services for individuals desiring convenience or independent living and for patients recuperating at home or managing a chronic disease.
Filling the Need
People always ask us why we started Mom’s Meals. Well, the answer is simple. We wanted to help folks, like us, struggling to find solutions for lending a hand to their parents and relatives living far away.
We quickly saw a need – and a desire – to help aging moms and dads, relatives living far away, loved ones recuperating after a hospital stay, or those with chronic diseases who may be struggling to care for themselves. Time after time, we heard stories about families facing these issues. That’s when we knew we needed to turn our idea into a solution for everyone who needed access to nutritious meals that were both convenient and easy to prepare.
At the time, our own moms needed meal support, and we found we couldn’t be there to prepare or bring cooked meals regularly. That’s why we called our first product “Mom’s Meals.” We wanted to provide our own parents with the same fully-prepared, delicious, comforting meals they used to make for us, plus use some of their favorite recipes on our menu.
Our very first meals were made in a small kitchen in Nevada, Iowa. We hired a professional chef from the start to make sure the meals tasted great, and the entire family pitched in to help package the meals, ensured each customer had the right order, and delivered them right to their doors.
