How much does it cost to get deliveries from Wholesome Foods?
Wholesome Foods delivers free of charge* anywhere in Arizona. Nation wide shipping is also available. A shipping and handling charge will apply.
Do I have to buy in bulk?
There are no minimum or maximum orders and there are no contracts required. Since the majority of our items come portion controlled and individually packaged, they can easily fit in your side by side freezer and typically contain four to ten servings per box.
Is it expensive?
Our prices are very reasonable. Depending on what items you choose, your avg. serving might cost you anywhere from $3.50 to $6.50 a serving. Considering that for $6.50 you can barely get a meal at your local fast food joint and now you get great gourmet food that’s already prepared, individually packaged, delivered directly to your door.
Can I save money on my normal grocery bill?
Our average customers tell us that their weekly grocery bill is around $150 per week for a family of 3 people. Half of that $150 will go to the main part of their dinners. Side dishes and drinks are fairly inexpensive. So that leaves $300 a month in center of the plate expenses. The same $300 spent with Wholesome Foods will get you over TWO months of entrees.
Why does your food taste fresher than other frozen foods and even fresh food?
People are generally under the misconception that grocery stores provide “fresh” food. The truth of the matter is that the thawed fish on display might have been on ice for several days as it freezes up over night and thaws during the day. The hamburger meat that you see nicely packaged with today’s date on it, could have been a rib eye steak three days before, as it sat too long and started to discolor.
Our meats and poultry get frozen and sealed once, with the USDA inspector present. This way you know that nobody handles your food after it’s packaged and remains frozen till the time you use it. It ensures that all the natural nutrients remain preserved and there is no loss of flavor or freezer burn on any of our items within the first year of purchase.
What do you mean by edible portion?
More is not always better. When you purchase say chicken at your local grocery store you typically get coup fed chicken that has been injected with steroids, preservatives, antibiotics etc. By the time you come home and trim off all the fat, skin, bones that you paid for by the pound, your edible portion gets reduced by as much as 50%. After you cook all the excess juices and fluids out of the portion, you end up with an edible portion that is only a fraction of the total portion you purchased at the store. Not only did you have to go through all the labor, you also have a lesser quality product that costs you the same as the already trimmed, marinated and or cooked Wholesome Foods portion.
I always forget to take food out of the freezer, what can I do?
Don’t worry most of our items thaw within 20 to 30 minutes in water! No need for taking food out the night before or to use a microwave.
How long before I need to reorder again?
There are no contracts. Each family’s food needs are different, but on average we see our customers every 2 to 4 months. Our average customer takes anywhere from 54 to 160 servings which will last them for 4 to 16 weeks. They might not be completely out of everything, but are ready to restock their staples and try something new for the new season.
What if I don’t like the items I choose?
Everything is satisfaction guaranteed. If you are unhappy with any of your items, we will gladly exchange any unused portion that was not to your liking.
