Online grocer Peapod has partnered with meal-planning technology company\DinnerTime.com to offer a convenient solution for shopping for tasty, affordable meals.
In the two dozen markets served by Peapod, DinnerTime members can now select the Skokie, Ill.-based delivery service as their desired grocer. Automatically including “what's on sale” at Peapod, DinnerTime then recommends meals based on each household's tastes, budget, time constraints, health concerns, food allergies, and other dietary restrictions and preferences. With the push of a button, the personalized meal plan/ shopping list automatically creates an order for at-home delivery or pickup at one of Peapod's 200 kiosks.
DinnerTime members save time on planning while enjoying healthy meals much more affordably. For instance, members of the Lutherville-Timonium, Md.-based meal-planning service can enjoy meals like sesame-crusted salmon, wild rice and grilled asparagus; or herbed pork chops with cinnamon apples and fresh green beans; or black bean spaghetti with chunky marinara sauce, all for as low as $3 per serving, using on-sale ingredients. DinnerTime offers more than 10 million meal combinations of highly curated, kitchen-tested recipes.
“At Peapod, we understand that our customers are not just shopping for ingredients, they’re shopping for convenient meal solutions,” said Peapod Chief Marketing and Creative Officer Carrie Bienkowski. “With over 40 million orders delivered, we’ve helped our customers save time and money while getting dinner on the table. Partnering with DinnerTime was a natural choice, and we’re thrilled to offer its members our service to simplify grocery shopping and streamline their meal-planning process.”
In addition to being available for consumers in monthly or annual subscriptions, DinnerTime also teams with employers, health plans, health associations and grocers. Many large employers and health plans, such as Johns Hopkins Employer Health Plan and Evergreen Health, provide DinnerTime as a free-to- member offering in their wellness programs. Likewise, large organizations such as the American Heart Association and the American Federation of Teachers sponsor DinnerTime for their millions of members.
