The 8 Meal-Delivery Kits To Help Through Quarantine

Self-quarantine and social distancing may be difficult but necessary in the time of the coronavirus pandemic. Other than washing your hands, staying home is the safest bet to get over the spread. But a person’s got to eat. The benefit of a meal-delivery plan is that you are still cooking your own meals but without the trip to the overcrowded grocery store. We’ve listed eight of the best meal-delivery services with a bonus: they have discounts for new customers.

Hello Fresh
