mom & Dad, do the math

Let’s face it the University of Chicago can be expensive and that’s just the tuition, add to that housing and meal plans, plus the cost of fast food and the associated delivery app fees, this can be an additional shock to the wallet. Fire Dept Meals can’t help with the tuition or the housing, but we sure can take your student’s hunger fires and get them extinguished.

You also need to keep in mind that you are going to spend 50% to 80% more than whatever meal plan you sign your U of C student up for! Why? Simply because they are not going to make it before the various options close, or they just don’t like the options, or they are just to lazy to walk, too hot, too cold? Now the missed meal is money wasted and they still have to eat, along comes a highly processed fast food joint to save the day. Now you apparently care about your students education, sending then to such a great university, show them the same care by helping them eat clean unprocessed meals..

food is medicine or food is poison

It’s funny to think that, the University of Chicago will teach “Nutritional Science” and its importance, yet serve your Maroon highly processed foods through its meal plans. The choice is yours; clean, unprocessed food that has proven to be the best medicine and the best way to prevent unwanted health issues. Or highly processed foods that are nothing but a slow poison.

We have a minimum of 6 meals for the University of Chicago however, delivery is FREE, and you will receive your meals on Thursday.

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.

Certainly! You can freeze your meals, especially if you don’t plan on consuming them within the recommended 7-day “best if used by” timeframe. However, it’s important to note that fresh food is always the best option. Please keep in mind that when reheating frozen meals, additional heating time will be needed beyond what is stated on the packaging.

Fire Dept. Meals advises against freezing meals with uncooked greens like salads.

Not only can you heat your meals in the oven, but this is how we typically reheat our meals! Just remove contents from the plastic container, place in an oven-safe dish, cover with an oven-safe lid, and heat to the desired temperature. We recommend starting with 10 – 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. 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.

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).
