IL Sacred Grounds Café Meal Program for healthy dinners

Sacred Grounds Café located at 233 N Main St, Edwardsville, is launching a new School Night Eats program to provide healthy dinners for families and singles.

Sacred Grounds Café located at 233 N Main St, Edwardsville, is launching a new School Night Eats program to provide healthy dinners for families and singles.

Since acquiring ownership of Edwardsville’s Sacred Grounds Café nearly two years ago, Kate Baumgartner has made some major changes to help build the business.

last year, Baumgartner has released a more comprehensive list To accommodate vegans and gluten-free pioneers (an improvement I strongly agree with).

Baumgartner said the list has increased significantly.

“our daily daily menu It hasn’t changed much,” but there are daily specials, she said, adding that the list is now “at least twice the amount of shows” than it was a year and a half ago.

Baumgartner puts a lot of thought into the fare offered at Sacred Grounds. There is an emphasis on locally and organically sourced ingredients to provide delicious and healthy botanicals.

“I buy all my ingredients a day,” Baumgartner said.

For fall and winter, Baumgartner is currently working on a soup menu. Plans include a weekly soup special with a sandwich or salad to complement the soup.

The latest addition to the café is the takeaway programme.

The Sacred Grounds School Night Meal Program provides customers with a healthy, fully prepared meal two nights a week.

(I know after a long day that the last thing I want to do is prepare dinner. One can only eat so much ramen or expect the significant other to fend for themselves.)

“It’s definitely exciting. There is no other program like this in town,” Baumgartner said.

The program started last week and offers family and individual meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Currently, one meal offer is available. Depending on how good the program is, additional options may be available later, including vegetarian/vegan and gluten-free options.

In the first week of the programme, Baumgartner said people were very responsive.

The number of meals available is currently limited to 20 orders, which is between 80-110 meals.

So be sure to place your orders for next week. You don’t want to miss it.

And a new site to boot

Sacred Grounds also launched a website last week to accompany the School Night Meals Program.

Dubbed current meal optionThis week’s offersOn the website, it highlights the available meal with a delicious-looking description and photo.

The site acknowledges that it can be difficult to “quit work, go to the store, shop, prepare food, get everyone together and eat,” or cook dinner for one person.

(Amen to all that I say).

“I’ve been imagining [the program] said Baumgartner, who felt strongly about the idea and took the time to realize it.

She admitted that everything costs a lot at the moment, including groceries. This meal program aims to help relieve some of the financial pressure on individuals and families while providing them with healthy meals.

During the development of the program, Baumgartner conducted a few Market research on the cafe’s Facebook page By asking followers how much it would cost to eat out or buy groceries to serve one dinner for their families.

The feedback Baumgartner received helped her set the prices for the dinners served.

Prices listed on the site range from $50 (four meals) to $70 (six servings). Check out the breakdown site.

Tuesday’s meals must be ordered by phone by 6 p.m. on Sunday and Thursday’s meals by 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
