"I received this as a gift after the birth of baby #2. I'm so happy I was able to relax and NOT have to make a meal for the family. Even my toddler gobbled everything on his plate. Mandy was AMAZING. Oh, not to mention...she cleaned up my kitchen too! Highly recommended."
"This service is AWESOME! We used it for a friend who recently had surgery and the last thing they needed to be worrying about was meal planning/ shopping/ meal prep. It was so easy to create the meal fundraising site and by that evening had funds pouring in from our friends and family!"
