Purple Asparagus, an award-winning, Chicago-based, non-profit that educates children, families and the community about eating that’s good for the body and the planet, and Meez Meals, Chicagoland’s premier DIY meal kit service, are proud to announce a partnership to combat childhood obesity. “Improving the way families eat through education and hands-on cooking is a common goal for both organizations since their inception,” said Melissa Graham, Founding Executive Director of Purple Asparagus.

For every unique Meez Meals recipe selected by a new customer using the code “purple20,” the family of a Chicagoland student participating in Purple Asparagus' nutrition education programming will receive a free meal. Meez Meals will also apply a $20 discount to the customer’s order as a thank-you for providing assistance for such an important cause.

Jen Moore, Founder of Meez Meals, stated, “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with an organization like Purple Asparagus that is doing such incredible work here in Chicago to promote the health benefits of cooking from scratch and family dinnertime. Meez Meals is honored to be able to expand our ability to provide healthy, delicious meals to the local community, especially those in the most need.”
