Jen P. and I had the opportunity to meet the owners of the Myers Park store at Providence Plaza (intersection of Providence and Sharon Amity), Cindy and Chip Wilson. We toured the store and best of all, we were able to try out several fabulous meals. The Mr. Food concept is to bring families back to the dinner table. They provide a place where you can, within 30-45 minutes, prepare a weeks’ worth of meals. The ingredients are fresh, from the herbs to the vegetables and meats. Not frozen!! I don’t know about you, but I have tried several meal-prep locations where the meat is frozen and I have wondered how old is it and can it really absorb the flavors!
Mr. Food no-fuss Meals offers a family-friendly environment. They provide a KidZone for the days when you have the kids with you. They also host Kids Can Cook sessions where you can bring in your 7+ year old and have them help you assemble your family’s meals. Very Smarty! The Wilson’s are inviting kids in anytime all day Wednesday, June 4, Thursday, June 12, Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 28. This will be a great summer activity.
Mr. Food no-fuss Meals has also introduced the Our Table program. This is a program of giving back to the community. For every 10 meals prepared at the Wilson’s Mr. Food no-fuss Meals locations (they will soon be opening two additional area locations – in Ballantyne and Matthews), their team will create an 11th meal and work with various organizations to ensure these meals are reaching those who need them most. While you are preparing meals for your family you are also helping to give back to the community.
At Mr. Food no-fuss Meals, you can also host private parties and fundraisers. You can get a girls’ group together to prepare meals for a friend having a baby or for a family experiencing a hard time. You can get your friends together and share a bottle of wine while prepping all of your meals. How fun is that? All of this is done in a very open, comfortable environment.
