At Kitchen Doula, we believe food is more than just fuel. Food is how we take care of each other and express our love. In the challenging, exciting, and stressful moments of life, we need to eat well not just to feel full but also to feel loved. Whether it's your first months home with a new baby, you're recovering from illness or injury, or grieving the loss, Kitchen Doula is here to take care of you or your loved one.
It's a great idea to book Kitchen Doula in advance or to encourage friends and family to purchase gift certificates so you can rest easy, knowing food will be on its way. We make all our deliveries on Thursdays and orders received by Monday are eligible for delivery the same week. Orders placed on Tuesday or later are likely to be scheduled for Thursday of the following week.
At Kitchen Doula, we are deeply committed to environmental responsibility. All soups and stews arrive in BPA-free pouches that can be recycled. Do not put these pouches in the microwave, instead defrost in the fridge or in a bowl of warm water.
We deliver in San Francisco and the East Bay, within 15 miles of Oakland. If you're not sure if you are within our delivery range, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (and stay tuned as we are working to grow our range!). There is a flat fee of $20 for all ala carte orders. For orders over $200 and ALL packages, delivery is FREE!
All meals are made from scratch, with the highest quality ingredients. We prioritize local, organic produce and exclusively use meat from pasture-based, sustainable, small farms. You can read more about our sourcing here. We use very limited sugar, almost always substituting honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar and avoid packaged, processed foods as much as possible.
Our menu items are noted whenever they are vegan, gluten, and/or dairy-free. We do, however, prepare our meals in a commercial kitchen and cannot guarantee that there will never be any cross-contamination.
