What are your rates?
We offer different menu options so that you can select the delivery service that best suits your needs.
Please go to “how it works” to see our price structures. Please note that all prices include labor, delivery and groceries but do not include tax, which will be added to your total.
Do you cater private events?
Yes! Mama loves feeding lots of people at parties. If you would like a quote, please email us the date of your event, type of event, how many people you would like to feed and what you have in mind and we will email you a proposal. Please note that mama only provides the food and serving ware but not the staff.
Do you have vegetarian options?
Yes! Liat is a vegetarian (although mama wishes she ate some meat with her potatoes!) and contributes many of
her favorite recipes to the menu roster. There are 2 vegetarian options per week, which are noted on the menu.
We offer full vegetarian programs with a surcharge of $25 per week.
Is Meal Mama kosher?
While Meal Mama is not a certified kosher kitchen, we only use kosher and hormone free meats and poultry.
Do you cook for people with food allergies?
Although you can omit up to two ingredients that you may be allergic to, please keep in mind that we use nuts,
gluten, dairy, soy and others common allergens in our kitchen and do not recommend that people with severe allergies order from Meal Mama. Mama does not want to see anyone sick!
Where does Meal Mama deliver?
Meal Mama currently delivers throughout Manhattan and most of Brooklyn. We also deliver to offices throughout
Manhattan for those folks that can't seem to get home before dinner (space in refrigerator required) but still want a nice, home cooked, healthy meal, made by mama, at the end of a hard day.
How do I reheat my food?
Meal Mama will deliver your meals in microwave safe containers. When you are ready to eat, heat your meal in the microwave with the lids slightly open.
Can Meal Mama accommodate my food restrictions?
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate substitutions in recipes but allow you to omit up to two ingredients per meal item.
How is Meal Mama different than other meal delivery programs?
Meal Mama is the first food delivery program in NYC that delivers home cooked, low-fat meals, to your home so that you can mantain a healthy weight while eating delicious food. We offer real portions prepared by a grandmother who views all her customers as family and prepares each dish with love. There is nothing fancy or pretentious about our meals. Our prices are the most affordable making our meals accessible to many New Yorkers who need a home cooked meal at the end of a busy day. Mama is not trained at a fancy culinary school. Her only training comes from real life experiences and her recipes come with stories and history. Many meal delivery services are diet driven and offer mass produced food that is frozen and served in tiny portions that inevitabely leave you hungry. Mama wants her customers well fed and her low-fat meals allow you to maintain a healthy weight rather than dropping weight. She does not want you to focus on counting calories. Instead, she wants you to focus on the flavors, ingredients and enjoyment that comes with the meals she carefully prepares for you. Mama is committed to each of her customers and will soon have an advice column on the site so that customers can ask her anything from dating advice to cooking advice. Also, check out our blog in the near future which will share some of the stories behind mama's meals. While you eat our meals in your kitchen, we want you to feel like you are in our kitchen while mama prepares them!
Is Meal Mama a diet program?
Meal Mama is not a diet program. While mama's main concern is that you receive fresh, delicious food that fills your plate, her meals are healthy and low in fat. Meal mama uses many fresh vegetables in recipes, little oil, whole grains and only hormone free meats and poultry. The service ensures that you can maintain your weight, not drop it, by eating deliciously fresh and healthy foods in portions that will not leave you hungry!yorkers woho
Does Meal Mama offer a referral program?
Yes! Mama loves cooking for lots of people! Refer a friend and get one free meal with a minimum of 2 weeks that a friend signs up. Just have your friend email us your name with their first order and as soon as they order 2 weeks of delivery you get a free meal.
Does mama bake?
Yes! Mama has her own line of cookies called “cookie mama” which will be available soon as an a la carte option. Mama's cookies are delicious with coffee or tea and make great hostess gifts! When mama is in an especially good mood, she might slip a couple in your order.
Do you use organic ingredients in your recipes?
Our ingredients are not always organic but are sourced locally whenever possible. We offer a selection of meals which use whole grains, legumes and we always cook with antibiotic/hormone free meats and poultry.
Do you offer gift certificates?
You can purchase any of our plans as a gift. Meal Mama deliveries make great gifts for a new mom, a
busy friend or simply as a gift for someone who appreciates good home cooking. Because our programs
are one of the most affordable it is easy to find a reason to buy a plan for anyone! Please email us at
email@example.com for more information.
What is your cancellation policy?
While there is no commitment, executed orders are non-refundable. For example, if you signed up for two weeks of meals and payment has been processed cancellation of meals for some or all of the days is not accepted even if they have not been delivered yet.
