Who uses our service?

Friend That Cooks serves busy families and couples who don't have enough time to feed their family the way they would like. We eliminate food stress by planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning up, leaving them to simply heat and eat.

Many of our families have members with special dietary needs or food allergies. By cooking from scratch and customizing every menu, every week, for every family, we are able to accommodate any family's food needs.

As an hourly service, the more food our families need to make it through the week, the better value we are. We may not be the best choice for single clients, though couples who use us for more than just dinner find a lot of value in our service.
