MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Moms don’t exactly enjoy making two lunches a day. While Kids Deli won’t pack Moms’ lunches, the service will take care of their kids’ mid-day meals.
CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald reports that parents in Miami-Dade County can now pay someone else to do the deed.
Kids Deli is a school delivery service that brings customized lunches right to the participating school or summer camp. Parents simply go online at the company’s site, www.kidsdeli.com, select from one of 16 main courses, 10 sides and seven beverages, choose a period of delivery (such as weekly, various days or school year) and the lunches are prepared, boxed and delivered fresh to the school.
Unlike catering companies that work with private schools, Kids Deli lunches are customized based on an individual child’s tastes and health requirements. The easy-to-open lunch boxes, with a colorful logo, are clearly marked with the child’s name, the contents, and any special allergy alerts before they are loaded into a van every weekday morning.
A quarter of the parents who use the service add personalized notes to the lunch that remind little ones to attend gym after school or that old, affectionate standby, XXOO.
Kids Deli co-owner Dan Kaplan partners with Shelly Werner, her son Brett and executive chef Pedro Rosado for the delivery business.
