When we started Just Add Cooking, we set out to create a convenient way for families to get into the kitchen, cook and share dinner together each night. But we quickly realized there was more to it than just providing recipes and ingredients.
We wanted to give our customers the food we provide for our own families: locally sourced, high-quality and fresh, responsibly grown, fished and raised with no GMOs and organic when possible.
We wanted to provide the convenience of a meal kit while still respecting our own standards of sustainability.
We wanted to support the local food economy that makes New England so vibrant whenever we could.

And so the mission for New England’s only local meal kit was born.
Just Add Cooking exists to nourish the families and communities we serve. Our meal kit contains only the freshest local ingredients, grown by New England farmers and caught by New England fishermen.
We provide an opportunity for families to meet over a delicious, home-cooked meal with food they can feel great about eating. We responsibly source and deliver these high-quality ingredients and globally inspired recipes - the kind of food that brings everyone to the table.

As a local company, we strive to minimize our environmental impact while providing maximum convenience for our customers. We don’t fly your meal kit in from someplace else. We locally deliver it the same day it’s packed, reducing food miles and using less packing material to minimize waste. Because ingredients are pre-measured, food waste is reduced. No more buying a jar of spices just to use a pinch.

We believe that food is a local business and you should know the origins of the food you eat.
Together, we create a sustainable food supply chain right here in New England to be proud of.

Happy Cooking!
