Product Storage & Preparation
It's so easy
As soon as our meals are delivered to you by Meals on Wheels, they should be placed immediately in a freezer and stored there until they are ready to be cooked.
Desserts can simply be thawed and/or warmed according to label directions before eating, while soups and entrées should be cooked directly from frozen. There is no need to defrost them.
All entrées can be easily cooked in the microwave or oven, and our soups can be cooked in the microwave or popped out of their container into a pot and cooked on the stove top. For cooking times, follow the directions on the label, but make sure that soups or entrées are cooked properly throughout to 74C before sitting down to enjoy them.
Afterwards, the empty plastic soup container can be recycled and the empty paperboard entrée container can be composted or placed in your green bin, where facilities exist.
