What is in my food?
I focus on using fruits and vegetables that are organic or “no spray”, and I choose local/in season over more exotic options. I also prefer to use meat from “happy” animals. Finally, I avoid trans fats, artificial preservatives, and additives.

That’s it. I make real, homemade food you want to serve your family.

Where do my ingredients come from?

All meat and fresh produce are purchased through high-end grocers, direct from local farms and producers, or through organic food buying clubs. I personally hand-select the finest ingredients for each week’s menu.

Where is my food prepared?
Meals are prepared in a certified commercial commissary kitchen in Portland,  Oregon. Full Belly Fare is a fully licensed, insured, and registered business, and in compliance with all food handling, packaging and labeling laws.

How is my food prepared and packaged?

Whenever possible, packaging is recycled, recyclable and/or compostable. I avoid non-stick coating and aluminium cookware in favor of stainless, glass and ceramic. I use primarily non-reactive storage containers and never use plastic for hot foods. Food is delivered fully cooked, cold,  and ready to serve, refrigerate or freeze, or transfer to a heat safe container to reheat and serve.

What about food sensitivities?
With growing awareness among consumers about food sensitivities and individualized responses to different styles of eating, I strive to offer something for nearly everyone.

Each week, my menu will offer options for the gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, soy free, and paleo/primal leaning customer. Vegan and nightshade free are often an option as well. Many dishes even offer a combination of the above listed preferences. I’m also able to customize for several other sensitivities, such as egg and corn, on an individual basis.

The kitchen is not an allergy-safe space; therefore, my menus are not appropriate for those with allergies to trace cross-contamination levels of exposure.

How long does my food last?

Unlike “cook ahead and freeze for a month” programs, my menus change weekly and monthly.  They come to you fully prepared and require only replating and reheating (cold dishes can  be eaten straight out of container, if preferred.)

All dishes are designed to remain fresh and delicious for up to four days, unless otherwise noted as an “eat same day” item.   Main dishes can also be frozen for later use.

Can I give this service as a gift?

Yes!  Do you have a loved one who’s had a new baby, surgery, or other stressful situation? Although you may not be able to deliver a meal yourself, Full Belly Fare is the perfect gift solution for family and friends who want to provide meaningful support to someone experiencing a life transition or challenge. Or maybe you’re just looking for a meaningful, truly helpful gift for a holiday or personal occasion? Simply purchase an e-gift card and we can email the recipient (or you) the receipt and log-in information, with which to establish an account and place an order.

Money saving tip: Gift cards do not qualify for the 10% discount, but if your recipient orders at least $200 worth of food, they will get 10% off, so you can purchase a gift card for $180, for instance, and they can still order $200 worth of food, which will be entirely covered by the gift card after the 10% discount.

Can I organize or contribute to a group gift?

Yes! Are you making a meal train for a friend in need? Is someone making a meal train for you? Or maybe out of town family has asked how they can support you? Now, anyone whose community wants to contribute – big or small contributions, everything adds up – can have an account with Full Belly Fare, and contributors need only name the recipient and enter a unique code for that recipient, in order to make a contribution. It’s quick, easy, and contributions of any size are a breeze. Here’s what someone sees when they want to contribute: Contribute to a group gift!
