Dinner Planning Made Simple.
Starting your week with a plan for dinners is magical. It allows you better maintain your pantry, save time & money, reduce food waste, eat healthier, streamline grocery shopping and the list goes on! However, the plan is the hard part. Who has time to sit down for an hour to pick dinner ideas for the week? Not many people. This is why we started MealVista.
MealVista makes getting healthy food on the table at an affordable price as easy as picking a movie on Friday night. You'll simply browse dinner plans created by food blogger and dietitians, select one and then we'll help you follow the plan with a pantry smart shopping list, grocery delivery/pick up integration, easy to follow recipes, and the ability to crowd source cooking questions in real time!
We've created the easiest means to start your week with a plan and realize the benefits of meal planning. All you need to do is pick a plan before you shop!
MealVista is a social enterprise, meaning we have dual mandate to make a profit and improve our food system for everyone.
Over the past 50 years the simple act of getting good, healthy food on the table has been made nearly impossible for millions of Americans and harder than it should be for the rest. This has caused the health crisis we see today. We are building MealVista to correct this and make eating well as easy as it used to be. We are bringing health back to American communities by fixing what we all eat.
