Residents in Baltimore, Annapolis, and Prince William County can get their hands on the company's nutritious meal kits.

Meal kits have always been popular for their convenience, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made them important, if not a necessity. Following an increased demand for ready-to-eat meals, Healthy Fresh Meals is expanding its services across the DMV area. The company, which is headquartered in Hyattsville, will now distribute deliveries at locations in Baltimore, Annapolis, and Virginia's Prince William County.

Healthy Fresh was founded in 2016 by Shana Greenbaum to address the need for healthy food options while remaining accessible to the public. Prepared by professional chefs, the meals are pre-packaged and made with locally-sourced ingredients. Their menu rotates each week, so customers can find everything from spaghetti and meatballs to vegan burrito bowls, as well as low-carb entrees. Various sizes options are available, including single-servings and family-sized portions.

Deliveries are made each Sunday, with pickup offered at select locations within each state, typically at fitness centers and gyms. Currently, pickup is offered at nine locations.

Meal delivery has been on the rise since the COVID-19 pandemic surged in March. Along with providing dependable and healthy meals, its convenience has been ideal for vulnerable communities including seniors and immunocompromised people who may not be able to leave the house for groceries. According to WTOP, Healthy Fresh has witnessed a 40-percent increase in business within the last few months, particularly from people with elderly family members.

In addition to serving citizens, the company also serves the community at large. In 2019 they provided free meals to federal employees during the government shutdown and stand as the "Official Meal" for D.C. United Soccer Club (customers can even enjoy "eating like an athlete" with their athlete menu!)

Healthy Fresh Meals deliver between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and require no subscription or minimums to enjoy. Interested? You can find out more here.
