About Our Food

About Our Food

CPM Delivers is a local food delivery service. We pre-cook exceptional food and provide simple reheating instructions for your convenience, and deliver it right to you!

What makes you different from other food delivery services?
1. So many things! We are not subscription based. The portions are human-sized. You have nothing to chop or prep. There are no recipes to follow. Just warm it up and enjoy!

2. We also are committed to making really good food that you and your family want to eat. Other food services offer a lot of food that you still need to chop, prep and cook. Some offer microwavable meals that are very healthy, but in tiny portions and don’t translate to a good family dinner. We do not have a nutritionist. We have good food, good ingredients and two chefs who know good food.

3. We have hearty chicken noodle soup, handmade meatballs, enchiladas, pot roast with mashed potatoes, breakfast sandwiches made with fluffy biscuits, French dip sandwiches, seasoned grilled chicken and so many other great things that you and your family will want to eat!

4. We do not use a lot of salt or fat. We use a lot of flavor.

What kind of ingredients do we use?
Good ones. Fresh meats, local produce, organic dairy, farm fresh eggs, organic baking ingredients, fresh herbs, freshly ground spices, house made sauces and dressings. All fresh. All the time. No preservatives, no fillers, no junk. We provide local and organic ingredients whenever possible – we work hard to make this happen.

Are you allergen free?
We have a very high standard of cleanliness, but since we share a cooking space, we must let you know that your food may have been made in the same facility which may have served shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, gluten, dairy and other food allergens.

You must use something that’s pre-made?
Yes. Some breads, tortillas, condiments and pastas – but only quality products. Sometimes these items are housemade, and will be noted on the menu.

Are you all organic or local?
No. We are as organic as we can be. A lot of our ingredients are organic or local, but some ingredients are very expensive when you go organic, and we would have to pass that high cost along to our customers. During any regular local harvest season, we shop farm stands or we are out in the fields picking our own produce.

Do you have vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and options?
We do sometimes have same of these options, you can find them on the menu item marked with an asterisk. i.e. *Gluten Free*

How long is my food good for?
You will receive a “best by” date on each package, with the exception of baked goods. Items with meats and other proteins are typically best when eaten within 5 days.

What kind of packaging do you use?
The kind that can be rinsed and tossed into your recycle bin.

How do I heat up my food?
Most of our items are oven or microwave ready in minutes. We recommend oven use for some items as the microwave can degrade the quality of the food, but you can feel free to microwave those items at your own risk (we have a lot of customers who microwave these items anyway and are perfectly pleased with the results).

When is my order due?
All orders are due on Thursday by 10 pm.

When do you deliver?
We deliver on Sunday evening and Monday evening, from 5-8 pm. There may be a change in delivery dates during holidays and holiday weekends. We also provide Monday Afternoon Cooler Drops for our customers on the go.

What’s a cooler drop? How does that work?
First, tell us that you want a Monday Afternoon Cooler Drop for your order. Your order will be delivered to your doorstep between 12-8 pm. We will leave your order with an appropriate amount of ice packs to keep your food cool until you arrive home. We ask that you put out the cooler and ice packs for your next delivery.
