Reduce Food Waste and Use the Savings to Hire an Affordable Home Cook
Based on research done by the US government, consumers throw away 21% of the entire edible and available food supply in the US! Weekly grocery shopping of a married couple with children in the US is $224, average consumer food loss or waste is 21%, meaning that the average family with kids in the US throws away $47 worth of food every week.
Having a cook shop for groceries can help reduce the average grocery spending dramatically. The Foodom cook buys only what’s needed for the meal without impulse shopping or buying extra quantity beyond what is needed for the booked meal.
With meal preparation starting at $30 and grocery shopping starting at $15, booking a Foodom cook 1-2 times a week could be no extra cost or minimal extra cost to a busy family by reducing their food waste, and at the same time saving many hours per day thinking about what to cook, grocery shopping, preparing meals and cleaning up. Cooking 2 servings and 10 servings costs the same, order a larger serving size and enjoy the leftovers for a few days for the same meal cooking price.
