If you’ve got a herd of hungry Sooners at your table, you’ll know how hard it can be to rustle up a variety of healthy, tasty, and reasonably priced meals every week. Short on time and ideas? Meal delivery services can come to your rescue.
We’ve compiled a list of Oklahoma City’s ten best meal delivery services comparing their menus, prices, and shipping. Because Oklahoma City has a diverse population, we’ve included meal delivery services to suit different needs and budgets, from singles to extended families.
Read on to learn more about what Oklahoma City’s best meal delivery services can do for you.
Meal delivery services send you kits containing all the ingredients you need, along with cooking instructions. You prepare and cook the meal yourself. Many delivery services offer kits that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less while some send fully-prepared meals you simply heat and serve.
On the other hand, food delivery services like Grubhub bring you hot restaurant food ready to eat.
It really doesn’t get any more convenient than this, but delivery fees and takeout meals can do a number on your budget, so they’re not an option for the long-term.
