HUNGRY is uniquely designed to safely create and deliver high quality, affordable food during a time when food safety and hygiene-consciousness are at an all-time high.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) April 02, 2020
HUNGRY Marketplace Inc., the celebrity-backed platform connecting top chefs with people looking for local chef-made meals, today launches its direct-to-your-door delivery service HUNGRY@Home in Washington D.C. and Boston. The startup plans to roll out HUNGRY@Home in New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Austin and Dallas later this week.
HUNGRY@Home extends the company’s already successful business and event catering model into the consumer market, giving people much-needed access to healthy, family-style meals without ever leaving their homes.
All HUNGRY@Home meals are made with the utmost care and packaged by food safety trained professional chefs. Meals are sealed and delivered in a temperature-controlled environment by a food safety trained Delivery Captain. HUNGRY’s Delivery Captains are required to wear fresh gloves at all times, including before and after a no-contact meal drop-off.
“HUNGRY is uniquely designed to safely create and deliver high quality, affordable food during a time when food safety and hygiene-consciousness are at an all-time high,” said Jeff Grass, HUNGRY CEO. “Families are also facing several new challenges when trying to prepare healthy meals at-home. In fact, many parents are taking on more responsibilities in the wake of school closures and others are still adjusting to a home-centric lifestyle that doesn’t include frequent grocery trips or dining out.”
HUNGRY@Home is a subscription-based, family-style food delivery concept that gives families both flexibility and peace-of-mind. Each menu item is chef crafted and designed to incorporate locally sourced ingredients shown to boost people’s moods, immunity and overall well-being. As part of its initial rollout, HUNGRY@Home is currently waiving delivery fees in all markets.
“Our distinct ability to create and deliver safe and delicious food will help ease the burden of families living within our communities during this uncertain time,” notes Eman Pahlavani, HUNGRY co-founder and COO. “What started as a mission to feed people great food, wherever they are, is proving to be a lifeline for certain groups of people. It’s also allowing local chefs and hourly workers to continue to collect a paycheck - a life-changing scenario for some of the hardest hit individuals in our communities.”
A HUNGRY@Home family meal plan starts at just $100 and every HUNGRY@Home meal provides up to eight individual servings. For every two meals sold, HUNGRY donates one meal to help people in need, including local first responders. To date, the company has donated close to 500,000 meals.
