As more Americans are trying to stay home as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, using a meal kit delivery service like HelloFresh can help you limit your exposure to crowds at stores.

HelloFresh is a meal subscription service that delivers to your door everything you need to cook fast, elegant and healthy meals. You don’t have to think, plan or even step foot inside a grocery store.

As a HelloFresh customer, you choose the meals you want and then you receive easy-to-follow recipes and all the necessary ingredients pre-portioned in an insulated shipping container each week.

How is HelloFresh addressing food safety?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “there is no evidence” to support that COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, is transmitted via food.

Regardless, HelloFresh CEO Uwe Voss is ensuring the company’s subscribers of the steps HelloFresh is taking to safely deliver ingredients.

In an email to subscribers today, Voss writes:

“All of our facilities have the highest levels of food and employee safety certifications, strictly following GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices). Nevertheless, we are reinforcing adherence to our rigorous and established hygiene processes and increasing sanitation measures throughout. As we closely follow the developing situation, we will continue to stay at the forefront of best manufacturing and shipping practices.”

HelloFresh plans enable you to personalize your meals. You can choose from meat-and-vegetable, vegetarian, family-friendly and low-calorie options. Each plan includes two to four recipes per week, with each meal serving either two to four people, depending on which plan you choose.
