How does it work? 

“My Chef Lara’s” pricing structure is a service fee plus the cost for groceries.
The cost varies depending on the type of service selected. As an example, to plan, shop for and prepare 10 nutritious dinners for two people (20 meals), the service charge is $350, plus the cost of groceries.

Plan Types:    Click the Number of meals amount to view a picture.

  • 5 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 20 meals
  • 4 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 16 meals
  • 3 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 12 meals

Pricing per meal depends on the number of meals we can prepare during one cooking day.

Our most affordable option is a 5×8 which gives you a total of 40 complete meals for a per meal price of less than $15.00 including all groceries. This is less than what you would pay for a take-out or order-in option

Additional services are charged at an hourly rate of $50 / per hour.

Service Area 
Our service area covers Southern MA and RI (about 1/2 hour to an hour radius from Providence, RI).  This covers as far north as Worcester/Needham areas and all of RI.  Depending on location additional fees may apply.

Please contact us for any additional information you may need on this.

How long will the food last?
How long the food lasts really depends on many factors including how often you eat out, if you will do any of your own cooking, etc. Below is a table of information with approximations of how long the food packages may last for a 5×4 service:

 5×4 Service:    Time
 1 Person  4 – 8 weeks
 2 People  2 – 6 weeks
 4 People  1 – 2 weeks

We also offer a Share-a-Chef program which would allow you to share the service fee with another family. Please see Additional Services for more information.
