What’s Unique About HungryRoot?
HungryRoot is based on a simple premise: if you have healthy food around, you're more likely to eat healthy. So, by filling your pantry with whole, fresh, nutritious food, HungryRoot is making it easier for everyone to eat and live healthier.
A grocery service that delivers fresh, healthy foods is already a novel concept. Here’s what else makes HungryRoot stand out:
People are different, and what healthy means to you might not be the same as what it means to your friend, neighbor, or cousin. HungryRoot is unique insofar as it provides healthy options regardless of what healthy means to you. So, whether you are strictly vegan, a completely keto, HungryRoot has a selection that fits your needs.
Besides that, HungryRoot gives you 2 delivery options. If you don’t have the time, interest, or knowledge to pick out the food items yourself, you can let HungryRoot go grocery shopping for you. The service will select ingredients based on the preferences you set out on your customer profile page. You can select things like gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegan, etc. Of course, if you like to hand-pick your produce, then that’s another option, too. HungryRoot lets you decide which food items look appealing to you and delivers that in your box. So, there’s a ton of personalization potential in these boxes.
HungryRoot offers plenty of fast and easy meal options. In fact, you can have your meal ready to eat in just 10 minutes using the recipes on the HungryRoot website and the ingredients you receive in your weekly packages.
HungryRoot provides you with fresh, delicious produce every single week. In fact, every item stocked in their pantries is free from all the things that are bad for you, including partially hydrogenated oils, artificial sweeteners, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavorings, and preservatives. There’s none of the junk that makes eating healthy harder, like refined sugars or trans fats.
How It Works
HungryRoot makes food delivery easy. You have 3 subscriptions from which to choose
- Small, good for 1 person
- Medium, good for 2 people
- Large, good for 3 or more people (families)
Then, you’ll answer a few quick questions to let HungryRoot better understand your eating habits and preferences. Questions include what type of food do you eat throughout the day, which meals (based on pictures) look the most appetizing to you, and what kind of snacks do you like to munch on.
Once you’re done, HungryRoot will recommend a plan for you, and you can customize it further by choosing the meal quantities you want. Then, you’ll finalize your plan, pay for your delivery, and wait for your food to arrive. You can also hand-pick your groceries if you prefer a more hands-on approach.
HungryRoot offers its subscribers tons of healthy and delicious recipes. The idea is to make the meals recommended with the food items you receive in your HungryRoot package. There are meal options for every meal of the day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), as well as snacks, dips, and desserts.
Plus, HungryRoot caters to specific dietary needs, including:
- Tree nut-free
