  • Follow the Safe Food Storage Tips provided to ensure the quality and freshness of your food.​

Safe Food Storage Tips:

  • All perishable foods should be refrigerated until they are to be consumed. This includes:​

  • Proteins like chicken, eggs, fish or tofu​

  • Cooked vegetables and grains or starches​

  • Dairy products like milks, yogurts, cheeses, cream cheese or spreads​

  • Cut fruits or vegetables like fruit salad or crudite (and their dips)​

  • Frozen soups, chilis and stews may be stored in the freezer or in the refrigerator for a few days if you don't have freezer space​

  • Perishable cooked foods (such as the daily entrees we’re providing) SHOULD NOT be kept for more than one week. Please discard those items not consumed within that time frame.​

  • Read pre-packaged foods for storage guidelines. Packages will often have statements like: Must be refrigerated; Keep refrigerated; or store in a cool, dry place. But when in doubt, refrigerate!​

  • Things that do not need to be refrigerated: dry good like cereals, crackers, chips or pretzels, breads or baked goods, dessert items like brownies, cakes or pies, hand fruit.​
