Meal Services


Makayla Fink (9th), Reporter

Lately more people have been using “meal services.” If you don’t know what that is, it’s the services that you sign up for and pay weekly for boxes of different uncooked meals that have recipes and basically your whole week of meals is planned out for you. Each meal for a family of 4 is 4 dollars.So for a family of 4 for 2 days is 70 dollars. There are many different types of meal services such as hello fresh, blue apron, and planted and freshly. 


My family and I have tried most of these and they are pretty good . Except for some things I don’t really like such as the small portions. For example when we have chicken and a veggie and the chicken usually has sauce. For a family of 5 I don’t think there’s enough. But the food is really good.


As I said before my family has used a lot of these and we really liked them. Some of our favorites were. Right now we are using hello fresh. We use it around 2 to 3 times a week and it’s mostly chicken and other stuff. I think it’s really helpful because it helps you if you don’t know how to cook it also if you don’t know how to cook and for beginners. It also get delivered right to your door with all the ingredients 

I asked my mom, Cheryl Fink, to say a little bit of what she thinks because I’m the one who buys and cooks it .¨We have used Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, Freshly, and Plated.  We have a continuous subscription to Hello Fresh. We find their recipes to be the best. The quality of the food is great, the recipes are yummy, and they are easy to prepare.


 We have been doing Hello Fresh for about 4 months. Everything is already measured, and each recipe comes packaged together, so it is easy to figure out what you need to make the meal, it is already done for you. It comes with all of the ingredients. The only thing I have to provide is salt, pepper, and sometimes butter. Everyone in our family agrees on Hello Fresh.

For me I think these are really good, useful and helpful. The food tasted really good.The only thing is the size of the poisons and the types of food because it’s literally the same thing every night just in different ways. It’s always chicken and something else. Maybe if they try solids or pasta and other stuff but in all i really like these meal service and i hope we continue using them and hopefully go one to some others
