What is MemphisEATS?

The MemphisEATS project produces healthy, plant-forward meals for students, faculty, staff and the community to pre-order and purchase. Nutrition students in the College of Health Sciences develop recipes and calculate nutrition information as a part of their education. We partner with Chartwell’s Dining Services for production. With a high focus on flavor and biodiversity, the meals are a cost-effective way for you to try vegetables at the center of the plate.

Meals feature five or more vegetables or fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains. Each week features a vegetarian and meat option. Meals are one serving per container, fully cooked, perfectly portioned, ready to heat and eat!
