Many parents simply have too much on their plate. Somewhere between work and homework—grocery shopping is something you just keep dropping from your list. Lucky for you, several Atlanta-based delivery services have cooked up a solution. Offering everything from gourmet dinner kits to locally-sourced organic produce, these services can provide all the ingredients for a healthy meal.


The folks at PeachDish attest that preparing and sharing a meal with people you love is the most universal way to connect. Each week, the PeachDish team develops a menu and mails members all of the fresh, pre-portioned ingredients and instructions needed to cook two dinners for two people for $50 a week. Their menus feature southern-infused and seasonal hits like “Morocco Meets the Mason Dixon Line” (crisp, roasted chickpeas, pan-seared sirloin, couscous and sweet green beans with warm tea & chocolate) and “Sophie’s Chicken” (light cream and mushroom sauce, egg noodles, herb roasted almonds & mason jar mousse). Put the kids down, pour yourself a glass, and serve up a sweet, stress-free date night sans the sitter.
