Get Meals


The first ingredient in our meals is always love. Our made-from-scratch meals are nourishing, medically tailored and approved by a registered dietitian nutritionist to address specific health conditions.



There are many ways to give a gift and make an impact! Your generosity will provide delicious, nourishing meals and nutrition education to thousands of people who are home-bound or too sick to cook for themselves.



Help us deliver love, dignity and nutrition to neighbors in need by joining us in the kitchen, or taking a route to deliver meals directly to our clients' doors! Both individual and group opportunities available.

Looking Back and Looking Forward

By: Matthew Pieper, Executive Director

St. Barts holds an important and meaningful place in our history, and we're so honored to be able to once again gather in this sacred space 35 years later. In 1988, the kitchen at St. Bart's was probably no more than 5,000 square feet. We could've never imagined back then that we'd grow to become who we are now: one of the largest community-based providers of home-delivered meals and nutrition education in the country.
