Meal services abound these days, but a local meal service, fully cooked and delivered to your door just feels that much closer to homemade. Here are a few of our favorite Fairfield County meal delivery services.
The Best Fairfield County Meal Services
Feast and Fettle
Feast, don’t fret, with Feast and Fettle’s meals prepared by professional chefs, using handpicked ingredients from local suppliers, and delivered to your home weekly. Each week features at least eight entrees and ten side dishes to choose from, including vegan options. The order deadline is Thursday at noon for the subsequent week. Orders are hand-packed and chilled one day prior to delivery—fresh, never frozen. Deliveries, in insulated bags, are made Sunday through Thursday. Meals come with reheating instructions and are ready to enjoy in under ten minutes. No commitment—skip weeks as you like.
Kinney Lane Foods
Chef Rachael Mahoney prides herself on her small women-run company focused on creating nutritious meals, delivered to customers’ homes. The menu, with seasonal ingredients largely locally sourced and organic, is designed with healthy eating in mind and preserving foods in their whole form. Meals are made daily in Kinney Lane’s New Canaan kitchen by a team of chefs. Many meals are free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars, and organic meat comes fresh from local farms. The order deadline is Friday afternoon for the following week. Deliveries: Mon and Wed.
Chef Laura James says food is her love language, and she’s ready to speak it fluently in your kitchen with her in-home meal prep concierge service. Enjoy a 15-minute free consultation call, and then James will propose a menu, do the grocery shopping, cook in your kitchen and leave you with six dishes to last three to four days. She uses locally sourced, organic ingredients as much as possible, with Double L Market and Superior Seafood in Stiles Market being two of her favorite Westport shops. Cost: $250 + groceries.
Stocked By Three Owls
Stocked is an a la carte prepared foods marketplace that delivers to your door. No subscription, set meals, or plans—simply healthful, organic menus that change every week, with choices to mix and match: salads, grains, proteins, and more to incorporate as you like into your culinary routine. Stocked promises something for every age, diet and lifestyle. You select your delivery day (Mon, Wed or Thurs) and stock up for the week or choose a package, like the 3-day Fridge Stock.
WECO’s chefs prepare family-style meals using ingredients from their partner farms and hand-deliver them to your door in time for dinner—or you can pick up from their location near the Westport Train Station. All you do is heat, plate and call your crew to the table. No subscription fee or minimum order required. Just pay for the meals you order. Delivery is $6, for the bliss of doorbell to dinner in 10 minutes. WECO uses a trust-based payment model, billing for ingredients only; customers add what they like for labor, overhead and “love.”
