Meal Quality and Sourcing

Meal Quality and Sourcing

Meal quality and sourcing have the highest impact on how weekly meal deliveries support individuals in the community. Medically tailored meals (MTM) and other essential services are only possible with high-quality ingredients and well-sourced foods. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), “Older adults often need fewer calories, but more nutrients, which makes it essential to eat nutrient-dense foods.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition ethically sources food and meal preparation services to ensure clients access the healthiest and most nutrient-rich foods.

What Affects Meal Quality and Sourcing?

Tailored meals with top-quality ingredients ensure higher nutritional value by reducing empty calories. Often, people in the community are limited in the types and quality of food they can access due to various factors, including financial strain or fresh food shortages. The meals created by LifeSpring Home Nutrition have the benefit of being made with foods picked at the peak of each season without needing to rely on local grocery chains.

According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “The demand for high-quality food has constantly increased during recent decades, as has the interest in the food quality issue both in response to market pressure . . . and also as a reaction to other factors, for example, health and environmental concerns.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition understands the importance of providing people with quality food to reduce healthcare costs and decrease the risk of preventable health issues.

Meal quality is affected by multiple factors, including:

LifeSpring Home Nutrition prioritizes the quality of each dish by using the most nutritional and ethically sourced ingredients. The meal preparation team only uses food from supply companies with a person-focused and ethical approach to customer service. Every dish is carefully planned, and the ingredients are sourced for the most nutritional value. Each dish provides clients with delicious food high in nutritional density.

We Use Only the Highest Quality Ingredients

LifeSpring Home Nutrition prepares frozen meals and maintains quality and consistency by purchasing ingredients picked at the peak of freshness. The flash-freezing process retains more nutrients than fresh, non-frozen ingredients, improving the taste and healthiness of each meal. According to Food Science and Animal Resources, “Rapid freezing is recommended to produce small ice crystals in inter- and intracellular spaces, thereby minimizing physical damage and quality loss in frozen meat” and other frozen foods. Sourcing ingredients through suppliers offering rapid freeze foods ensures the end product contains essential vitamins and minerals. Clients can reheat the food at their convenience without losing any nutrients.

How Does LifeSpring Home Nutrition Navigate Meal Quality and Sourcing?

LifeSpring Home Nutrition ensures clients receive the best meal options for their unique circumstances, needs, and preferences. Each department conducts quality checks to ensure each meal delivery arrives ready to be eaten or frozen for future meals.

Maintaining Meal Quality Checks

Quality checks ensure consistency between meals. Every dish delivered by LifeSpring Home Nutrition is monitored, and every batch of food undergoes comprehensive quality checks to ensure compliance with state and federal laws. The meal prep team focuses on more than just food quality. Taste and appearance are also an essential part of quality control. People are more likely to feel full and happy when they have access to attractive, tasty foods.

LifeSpring Home Nutrition provides meals for individuals covered under state programs, including CalAIM. According to the Journal of Aging Research, “[F]requent provision of meals from a formal agency can improve food intake and decrease undernutrition risk” for older adults. In addition, “[B]y getting meals from a formal agency, those who would otherwise not be able to obtain or prepare food without assistance can keep living in their own homes.” The quality of food provided to vulnerable individuals in the community is maintained by strict policies and procedures.

Ensuring the Best Meal Quality

LifeSpring Home Nutrition ensures the best quality and sourcing of meals by only working with companies who put their values and customer safety first. Client care is more important than saving money, and everyone from the registered dietician (RD) to meal delivery drivers takes extra care to ensure each delivery meets the needs of people in the community. The meal preparation team understands the importance of providing nutritional resources to disadvantaged individuals. Food is a form of medicine that helps people heal from health conditions and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Everyone deserves access to quality service and meals.

LifeSpring Home Nutrition sources from companies best suited to provide the highest quality and most nutritious ingredients. The preparation team uses locally grown foods when appropriate to support farmers and companies in the community. However, sourcing good food is about more than finding the right ingredients. Integrity, cultural sensitivity, and transparency are also important factors when choosing where to acquire ingredients.

Partnering With Companies That Share Our Values

LifeSpring Home Nutrition partners with ethical and client-focused companies to create the best products. Being mindful of where ingredients and packing come from makes it easier to implement quality control measures. Many communities struggle with food insecurity due to economic hardship or loss of local food sources. Partnering with companies to provide weekly meal deliveries reduces food insecurity and improves the quality of life for community members.

Sourcing high-quality ingredients and meal options allows people more freedom in choosing what foods are delivered to their door each week. LifeSpring Home Nutrition partners with ethical, high-quality sources to ensure every nourishing dish looks and tastes good.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
