Notice: Family Meal Sacramento will continue to provide meal kits to people in need aslong as donations and sponsors make it possible to do so. We are committed to serving our community.
Family Meal Sacramento was developed by the owners and chefs of five Sacramento restaurants to supply thousands of people with free, pre-cooked meals during the pandemic.
The program is designed to feed people who need it, keep people employed, support small businesses, and support local farmers. Family Meal Sacramento’s original restaurant partners include Allora, Binchoyaki, Camden Spit & Larder, Canon, and Mulvaney’s B&L.
Each Meal Kit includes 4 meals. They are free for the recipients. Restaurants are reimbursed $38 per meal kit and $2 from every kit covers the administrative costs.
Family Meal has supported a wide variety of citizens in need including elderly residents and people living with disabilities in Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) apartments, organizations such as Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, the Roberts Family Development Center, and Mercy Housing, as well as schools including 13 schools within the Sacramento City Unified School District and three schools within the Robla School District.
Two exciting expansions have happened sinceFamily Meal Sacramento launched in April 2020!
We are proud that Family Meal Sacramento inspired the state of California’s Great Plates Delivered program. Great Plates Delivered is now in place in several counties in California, including Sacramento's Great Plates Delivered. Family Meal Sacramento continues to provide meals to children and adults in need, and some of the same restaurants also prepare meals for Great Plates Delivered.
