A Medic’s Journey: A Message from the Chefs

The journey of a paramedic is a demanding and challenging one, marked by high levels of stress, long hours, and the need for quick decision-making in critical situations. Throughout this journey, the role of food is crucial for sustaining physical and mental well-being.

  1. Energy and Stamina: Paramedics often work long shifts, sometimes in high-pressure situations. Adequate nutrition is essential for providing the energy and stamina needed to handle the physical demands of the job. Meals should include a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats to ensure sustained energy levels throughout the day.
  2. Quick and Healthy Options: Due to the unpredictable nature of emergency medical services, paramedics may not always have the luxury of sitting down for a leisurely meal. Healthy, easily portable snacks and meals become important. Options like granola bars, fruit, nuts, and pre-prepared, balanced meals are convenient choices that can be consumed on the go.
  3. Hydration: Staying hydrated is vital for any paramedic. Dehydration can impair cognitive function and physical performance. Carrying water or electrolyte drinks and making a conscious effort to drink regularly, especially in high-stress situations or during physically demanding tasks, is crucial.
  4. Coping with Stress: Emergency situations can be stressful, and the ability to cope with stress is paramount for paramedics. Nutrition plays a role in stress management. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as fruits and vegetables, can help combat the oxidative stress associated with high-pressure situations.
  5. Post-Shift Recovery: After a demanding shift, proper nutrition is essential for recovery. Meals that include a mix of protein and carbohydrates help replenish energy stores and support muscle recovery. Adequate rest and nutrition are vital for preventing burnout and maintaining overall well-being.
  6. Mental Health: The connection between nutrition and mental health is well-established. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals play a role in brain function and mood regulation. A well-balanced diet can contribute to better mental health, helping paramedics cope with the emotional challenges of their profession.
  7. Shift Work Challenges: Paramedics often work irregular hours, including night shifts, which can disrupt normal eating patterns. Developing strategies for managing meals during night shifts, such as planning and packing nutritious snacks, becomes essential to ensure that dietary needs are met.

In summary, the journey of a paramedic is physically and mentally demanding, and proper nutrition is a fundamental aspect of maintaining health and well-being. By prioritizing balanced meals, staying hydrated, and making mindful food choices, paramedics can better cope with the challenges of their profession and provide optimal care to those in need.

These are recommendations, and heating may vary based on your personal preferences.

First, all meals are packaged refrigerated not frozen. However, if you are outside our hand delivery area, your meals were packaged with dry ice. 

So during the shipping period, the dry ice will freeze the meals to ensure they come to you fresh and with no chance of being warm. We have tried all different refrigerants, which do not last with weather/heat and any chance of delays with UPS. The last thing we want are meals showing up warm or spoiled due to weather/time. If you have received meals from other companies with gel packs, we can pretty much guarantee they were frozen when they went in the box.

We are required by the Department of Health and the FDA, to keep the meals at 40 degrees or below to meet all food safety guidelines.

We can assure you that your meals are made fresh just a day or sometimes a few hours before going out the door. Just take the meals, place them in the fridge and they will be perfectly fresh to enjoy.

Central Florida delivery times do vary depending on the number of local orders placed during the week. You can expect to receive an email on Monday morning with your delivery times (please make sure you check your junk/spam folder). Now, we will clarify, that we do our best to reach your delivery location at the designated time, however, traffic and weather can cause delays.

We also wish to make you aware, that if you live within the $6.00 HAND DELIVERY AREA, you must be home at time of delivery OR provide a cooler OR provide an alternate delivery location. Our meals are fresh and never frozen, delivered in temperature controlled vans so they are cold but cannot be place on your door step for a long period. You can provide your own cooler with refrigerant, but we cannot be responsible if they damage the packaging.

For our Family receiving their meals via UPS (those outside the $6.00 delivery area), we are limited to shipping times regulated by UPS. Everything we ship will have no longer than 3 days maximum and your are not required to be home. Our boxes are packed with refrigerant (dry ice) and are well insulated. *Note: your meals may arrive frozen due to the dry ice, remove from box and place in the fridge they will defrost and be good as new.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Yes, with our meal delivery plan, you have free range to pick which meals sound best. We update our menu weekly, so while we do choose which meals we’re preparing that week, you get to decide which meals and sides you’d like delivered. Our recipes contain ingredients and flavors from various cultures and traditions, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. They’re delivered fresh and never frozen.

First, we are truly sorry that this has happened. As much as we stress our concerns with UPS management there is not much we can do.

We personally take your package (with extreme care) to the UPS facility, were it is handed over and into their care. Beyond that we have no control of what happens next and therefore can not be financially responsible for any damage.

Please make your claim with UPS and if you do happen to need any information from us, to assist in recovering your loss,  we are more than willing to provide the information (if available).

First, we apologize that your meals did not arrive when they should have. This is a tough answer and one you’re mostly likely not going to be happy with. Accountability in any business is important and we really don’t believe in pointing fingers, however once we have delivered your package/shipment to the shipper, they are now in control and believe us we wish we could be.

When we were hand delivering all of our meals, we were in control. If your meals arrived damaged, warm or with any issue we would refund part or all of your order without question. As we grow, we rely on others to do their part, as if it were us and unfortunately that is not always the case. As a small business relying on much larger businesses, with the resources get things done, we have to trust it will get done correctly.

Now since you’ve asked this question, it means they didn’t and the shipping company has failed. As much as we would like to refund money for the mistakes of others, we are a small business with a lot less capital than those that have made the issue. We advise anyone who has had this experience to take pictures of inside the box, record the date you received it and file a claim immediately with UPS.

Yes, because everything we cook/serve is prepared fresh and never sees a preservative. Your meals stay fresh for 7–10 days in the refrigerator. We do, however, have a disclaimer on salads. Due to the nature of greens, we shorten the shelf life to 3–4 days in the refrigerator. Our meals do freeze well and this a great option, if you can’t eat all you bought.

Absolutely. You can freeze your meals, especially if you do not intend to eat them within the 7-day “best if used by” date. That said, fresh is always the best. Please remember when heating from frozen, additional time is required from the time stated above.

Fire Dept. Meals would strongly advise against freezing meals that contain uncooked greens, like salads.

Not only can you heat your meals in the oven, but this is how we typically reheat our meals! We have changed our packaging and they area no longer oven-safe, so you will need to transfer the meals to an oven-safe dish. We would recommend 10 – 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees or until the desired temp is reached. Heating instructions are on the label. These are recommendations and heating may vary based on your personal preferences.
