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

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.
