Frequently Asked Questions
Is all the food vegan?
Yes, all our food is 100% whole-food, plant-based, low-fat. We do not cook
with or use animal products or
byproducts. Additionally, to keep the food low-fat, we do not use coconut,
avocado, nuts (except for small
amounts in almond milk), or peanuts. Occasionally, we will use small amounts
of seeds, but only as a garnish or
condiment, never as the main substrate of our dish. Some of our dishes
What about allergens?
Since all of our food is plant-based, it does not contain any meat or dairy
products. We do not use peanuts,
avocado, or coconut. Most of our items are completely nut-free, but
occasionally, we use almond milk. Some
dishes may contain soy and gluten which is marked when clicking in the
information icon for each meal.
How much does it cost?
Our service is sold by item, not by the week or month, but a single item
often will have enough food to provide
more than one meal. For many items we offer medium and large sizes depending
on your appetite. For our most
popular dishes, we also offer family size to feed a whole group. Our prices
vary from $2 for the smallest side
order to $51 for our family size lasagna.

What if I am not home during the delivery time?
We generally deliver from 2–5:30 pm so that you can receive your meal for
dinner. If you are not home, we will
leave the packaged and sealed food in an insulated cooler with a frozen gel
pack. Depending on the outside
temperature, the food should stay cool at least a few hours. However, if you
will be arriving home late or have
concerns, please contact us.
Where and how are the meals prepared?
We have our own brand new kitchen at our location in Duarte which is used
only by Little Green Forks. We use
strict cooking and sanitation procedures to ensure the best meals. All our
meals are prepared with love by our
chef and cooks. We buy the freshest produce and prepare the meal in the
morning so that you get a wonderful,
fresh, delicious meal by dinner!
Do I have to subscribe to a plan or order multiple meals at
NO! You can order one meal at a time or 30 meals at a time. You can choose
what meals you want for each day; we
won't force you into a meal plan.
How environmentally friendly is your packaging?
All our utensils, napkins, and salad containers are 100% compostable. The
paperboard containers are 90%
compostable. Since the soup containers need to be microwave-safe they cannot
be compostable (the high heat
starts breaking down compostable plastics) but they are 100% recyclable.
How long will my meals keep in my fridge or freezer?
Our entrees can last up to 4-7 days if properly refrigerated, or up to two
weeks in the freezer. However, all
our dishes are made fresh daily and taste the best when eaten the same day.
How do I prepare my meals?
All soups come in microwave-safe containers. If microwaving,
crack open the lid to allow steam to
escape. Heating times will depend on soup size and microwave power.
Generally small/sides can be heated for 1
minute on high, mixing at 30 seconds. Larges can be heated for 2–3 minutes
on high, mixing every 30
Soups also taste terrific when heated over a stove
Most entrees come in
paperboard containers with a plastic film over top. These containers are
safe for microwave use. Please cut a
slit in film before heating.
These containers can also be used in an
oven, but remove the plastic film
Many of the dishes can also be transferred to pan and reheated
on the stove-top.
