Conveniently and securely
Who is Joy Kitchen?
Founded in 2013, we are a registered, incorporated, 501(c)3 non-profit food ministry serving Gwinnett County, GA. We have years of experience in creating healthful and appetizing meals, serving in-person and remotely. One of our guiding principles is always to offer food we would be proud to serve our family and guests in our own home.
About Our Frozen Meals
Where are they made?
We prepare, package, and freeze our meals in a local commercial kitchen which is licensed and regularly inspected by the GA Departments of Health and Agriculture. Our lead chef maintains a yearly ServSafe certification, Servsafe being a professional course in safe food prep and handling offered by the National Restaurant Association which all restaurant workers are required to pass.
What’s in the meals?
Our frozen meals are built around fresh, high-quality beef, chicken, or, now and then, pork or ham. Sides are usually a starch – rice, pasta, or fresh potatoes – and often some kind of colorful fresh vegetable. The meals are lightly seasoned.
Where do you get the meat for your meals?
We purchase our meats the same places restaurants do – from restaurant supply warehouses such as Restaurant Depot, and sometimes from Sam’s Club. Our meats are always fresh, never frozen, and always great quality.
Are the meals microwavable?
Yes, though our containers are NOT electric- or gas-oven-safe unless noted.
After we prepare the meals, we portion them into lidded freezer-to-microwave containers. After that we freeze, shrink-wrap, and label them. Cut away the shrink-wrap and lift the lid, and your meal is ready to microwave.
How do I get these frozen meals?
We are not open directly to the public at present. Instead, we distribute our frozen meals to selected pantries and shelters who distribute them for us.
