This holiday season, we’ve teamed up with PayPal to let you feed the hungry with just one touch. On December 15th, we’re hosting a festive feast in San Francisco for hundreds of those in need with all the trimmings—holiday decorations, guest speakers, Munchery chefs and, of course, plenty of fantastic dishes.
If you’d like to participate (and we hope you do), just pay for your next Munchery order using PayPal anytime between November 25th and December 15th and we’ll donate a percentage of the proceeds (in addition to our normal give a meal get a meal program) to this special event. We’d also love a few helping hands—decking the halls, peeling the potatoes—on the day of the event. If you’re interested, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone deserves a meal served with love and we hope you’ll help us do just that. Happy holidays from the Munchery team!

From the very beginning, it was important to us that Munchery give back to the communities it serves. With the holidays just around the corner, we wanted to supercharge our existing meal donation program – through which we have already donated hundreds of thousands of meals in the Bay Area. With more than 50 million Americans struggling to put food on the table and less than two weeks until Thanksgiving, how could we not?
So, we partnered with ridesharing service Uber and Food Runners—an organization dedicated to alleviating hunger in San Francisco—to create #TaptoFeed, a campaign that will deliver thousands of meals to those in need, all in just one day, and all on-demand. You’ll be able to watch your donation travel to its destination in real time. This is technology at its very best, and we’re so proud to be a part of it. We hope you will be, too.
Here’s how it works:
—If you haven’t already, download the Uber app for iOS, Android or Windows
—Open the Uber app today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and tap the FEED vehicle in the bottom navigation
—Donate a meal – $10 provides a meal for someone in need custom made by one of our chefs
—Track your meal in real time as it makes its way to a Food Runners location
—Enjoy a $10 credit toward your next Munchery order and lots of good karma
From the Munchery family to yours, thank you for helping us spread some Thanksgiving cheer and have a wonderful holiday season!
Over the last couple days, we’ve received some questions concerning Munchery’s use of refrigerated trucks near our primary commercial kitchen. I’m writing this morning to answer those questions publicly and to apologize to neighbors who have been bothered by our operations.
1. Why does Munchery use refrigerated trucks?
Food safety always has been–and always will be–our #1 priority. Our food is prepared fresh each day, then chilled to maintain optimal flavor and quality for delivery.
Like any food business which delivers fresh product (think meat or produce), we use a fleet of refrigerated trucks to keep our food chilled en route to customers. Delivering in this format lets us offer temperature-sensitive dishes your local takeout place can’t – like grilled fish or medium-rare steak.
2. How does Munchery use refrigerated trucks?
We use refrigerated trucks in two ways: (a) to deliver meals to customers and (b) to distribute produce we receive from our purveyors to our culinary teams. After each day’s deliveries, trucks are emptied and cleaned. We never use trucks as overnight storage for any food.
3. Are your truck engines left idling throughout the day?
No. In compliance with state law, our trucks’ engines are never left idling. Because these trucks are loaded with chilled food ahead of delivery, we run the refrigeration units while they are loading (the units turn on and off automatically to keep the temperature at a level which is food-safe). These units, which are mounted on top of trucks, operate independently of the trucks’ primary engine. This is permitted under state law.
4. Why do Munchery’s trucks receive parking tickets?
At times, we have failed to move our trucks during street cleaning. We’re working hard to make sure this doesn’t happen again and understand this is a serious issue.
5. What are you doing to be a better neighbor?
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience we have caused our neighbors. In recent weeks, we have engaged with neighbors and, as a small token of apology, offered free meals while we work to improve the situation.
While we operate in an area zoned for industrial activity and our operations are in compliance with all state and local laws, it’s really important to us that we are considerate neighbors. To that end, we are taking the following steps:
6. What are you doing to be a good corporate citizen?
We do our best to be a positive force in the community. Some efforts include:
As context for why we do these things: I spent most of my career writing software to help nonprofits. I’ve always believed that giving back should be a core part of any company’s mission. I feel incredibly lucky to live in the Bay Area, and it’s really important to me that Munchery is a force for good.

Thanksgiving is about three things: spending quality time with loved ones, expressing deep gratitude, and stuffing yourself silly. None of which require that someone spend the entire day in the kitchen.
Our four-person feasts are an easy way to simplify the holiday — reserve one now and let Munchery chefs take care of dinner. They worked together to come up with a classic, comforting menu that gets the beloved all-American meal just right.
Each family-style delivery includes free-range, all natural roast turkey with pan gravy; creamy mashed potatoes; cornbread stuffing; local brussels sprouts sauteed with smoked bacon; an autumn salad; and homemade cranberry relish. And vegetarians needn’t feel left out this year — there’s also butternut squash with local quince and chestnut stuffing, accompanied by roasted brussels sprouts and pomegranate seeds.
There’s holiday pumpkin pie too, of course. And clean-up couldn’t be easier.
Let our chefs whip up the classics and bring Thanksgiving to your doorstep. Here’s to a holiday filled with love, laughter and plenty of time with family and friends!
