Freeze it Forward for 2018
At the heart of our company is the desire to help others, and to empower our community to serve.
We love to encourage you to “Freeze it Forward” in small ways with your freezer meals. We’ve been given a lot, and we want to give back because of our abundance.
We all know someone who might be walking through a difficult or challenging season, or simply might be overwhelmed – single parents, foster/adoptive parents, new parents, military families, families experiencing economic hardship, compromised health, or even a nonprofit organization.
Well friend, we are ready and prepared to help equip you to help them. And we’re ready to do it in a BIG way!
We want to give away memberships so you can gift meals!
Apply and Nominate!
Getting started is simple. Simply submit an application nominating yourself or for someone you know to receive a yearly Once A Month Meals membership, totally free! Seriously, it’s that simple.
Do you know someone who is…
- Having Money Troubles? Do they need help balancing the grocery budget, or making ends meet?
- Starting a New Diet? Do they need help to improve their health and wellness? Or did they have to start a new diet because of a recent diagnosis?

How to Get Started
If you plan on bringing or gifting someone meals, using our system and membership to make it easy!
Our system automatically doubles each recipe, yielding two meals. You can always keep one and share one when you cook a menu. It’s also easy to customize serving sizes to share with a big family or to create single serving meals – whichever serves your purpose better. Single servings are particularly helpful for those who are ill or who live alone.
Easy Meals to Gift for Friends!

Using Once A Month Meals to Prepare a Large Quantity Fresh Meals
There are a variety of ways that you can use Once A Month Meals to serve and we wanted to provide you with a few resources to think about to make this effective for your community. Below are some posts with suggestions for economical meals and/or menus that you can use to make food go a long way.
If you are not freezer cooking, but instead, taking the meals to be eaten right away, here are a few tricks:
- Make Lunches: Pick all LUNCHES (these are meals that are cooked on cooking day), this way you can use the grocery list, prep lists and cooking instructions to plan and execute your day.
- Our Recipes Double: Remember, our system doubles servings so if you are taking food to a location for workers and there will be 20 workers, set your serving size to 10.
- Contact Us: Our team is always ready, willing and able to help you build a menu that will work for your time and resources available. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Contact us in a chat (the orange icon in your bottom right hand corner of your screen) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on any of our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, etc)!
