As more and more Americans practice social distancing by limiting trips to the grocery store in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many have turned to alternative ways to feed their families while still eating healthfully. Meal kits and prepared meals are both options that are stepping up to fill that gap, offering convenient and healthy options with fresh ingredients.
