Where is the food prepared?

The food is prepared in the commercial kitchen of the Riverside Church, Hood River.  It is a fully licensed commercial kitchen meeting our requirements.

Where are the pick-up/delivery locations?

Pick up of meals is on Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm at the Riverside Church. Here are the pick up instructions:

  • Parking lot pickup procedure:  We use the commercial kitchen at the Riverside Church, 317 State Street.  There is a parking lot connected to the church on Sherman.  Follow these simple steps:
    • Park in one of the parking spaces in the parking lot up on Sherman behind the Riverside Church.
    • TEXT, “Pickup” AND your LAST NAME to 949.241.6159
    • Have your trunk or door open for us to place your order directly into your car.
    • Please do not text us until you are parked in the parking lot.

Delivery cities include Hood River, Mosier, White Salmon and Parkdale.

We will be quickly expanding delivery and pick-up locations in the future, thank you for your patience.

Is the food certified organic?

Our emphasis in on locally sourced foods that may not be certified organic but use organic practices.  We are here to create an incredible product for our customers that supports the local economy.  Building a relationship with farmers that use holistic practices when growing or raising food is more important to us than added expense to have a certified organic sticker.

We will promote our local growers on our website and in our printed materials so that you know where your food is coming from and what the farming practices are.

What are the portion sizes?

There is a lot of debate around correct portion sizes and we also recognize the each person in your family may have different nutritional needs. That being said, here are the standards that Local Rhoots strives for when it comes to eating well.

Protein: We plan for 4-oz of animal protein per person. Our proteins are hormone and antibiotic free, organic and free range, wild caught and grass fed wherever possible.

Fat & Carbohydrates: We love vegetables and healthy fats. In fact, we envision a Local Rhoots plate to be 80% vegan and filled with yummy vegetables, healthy fats and some fruits.

Calories: Our meals range between 400-600 calories per person.

Nutritional Info: We provide the calories and macro-nutrients per person on all of our recipe cards for our dinners. Lunch macros are available upon request.

To see some examples of our nutritional info, please checkout out This Weeks Menu. For other questions about our portion sizes and nutritional values, please contact service@localrhoots.com.

Why Do You Charge for Shipping Separately?

We charge for shipping each week so you can update your choice. In town this Tuesday? Maybe you want to pick up for free. Do you usually pick up, but have a commitment this week and need your meals delivered? Update the week’s shipping choice when you make your weekly meal selection.

How Do You Reuse My Weekly Packaging?

Once you’re finished with your meals, rinse out your containers and put them back in your cooler bag. Bring the cooler bag back to your next pick up or leave it on your porch if you have home delivery. We’ll sanitize everything for use again in a future week.

What Happens if I forget to PIck My Meals?

If you forget to pick your meals for the week, we’ll choose for you.
