Kate's Plate

FAQs

Because you need to know.
How does Kate's Plate differ from other meal kit services?
  1. We are local in your area. Since our food is delivered to your door (and not shipped across the country), we are supporting our local vendors, using local employees, and business resources.
  2. We do a lot of the prep work and cooking for you. Veggies are cleaned and chopped, fresh dressings are handcrafted each week, grains are cooked, and meats are ready for you to cook. It makes these kits a snap, and not more work in the evening.
  3. We focus on ‘clean-eating’ recipes. Ingredients REALLY matter to us! We scour labels so you don’t have to. We don’t use preservatives, emulsifiers, or funky chemicals in our recipes – they are better for you and taste better that way too!
How far in advance do I need to order?

You need to submit orders the week before service – the deadline is Tuesdays at midnight. Your meals are delivered or available for pickup the next Monday.

Is nutritional information available?

We are working on getting nutrition information done as soon as possible!  The info will be under each meal’s page.

Can I make substitutions?

Unfortunately, at this time – we are unable to accommodate special requests/custom orders. Most parts of the meal come individually.  For example, you can leave off the dairy, leave the asparagus out, or not use the sauce.

What if I have a food allergy?

We cannot guarantee that cross-contamination does not occur in the shop during order prep.  We recommend that if you have a severe allergy, that you do not use our service. 

What are the pickup hours?

Pickup hours are Mondays from 8am-6:30pm. Our location is 914 Senate Dr. Dayton, OH 45459. We are CLOSED on Tuesdays, so please plan accordingly.

Is all the food organic?

Whenever possible, we absolutely do purchase organic! However, not every single item is. Some produce has more pesticides than others, so items on the Environmental Working Group’s List (www.ewg.org) that rank highest in pesticides, we always buy organic. Those that are on the clean fifteen list are lowest in pesticide residue, and we find the freshest but not necessarily organic if that’s not the best choice.  Due to variations in season, shipping, weather conditions, and supplier issues, we do our best to get organic, local ingredients but from time to time have to substitute a conventional item due to availability.  Chicken is organic, beef is local grass-fed, pork is a mixture of pastured and conventional, seafood is either wild-caught or organic farm-raised.

What happens if I lose my instruction card?

The ‘How To Prepare’ cards are posted on each meal’s page on the website for easy reference.

How do I suggest a vendor or local farm?

Email us at hello@katesplate.com or tag us on Facebook to let us know what area farm or vendor we should use! Farms have a few ways to participate and we can get in contact with them about it. YAH for sharing the love.
