Sustainability and Citizenship
We believe in giving back to the communities we serve
How your green packaging can be recycled
Your meals are shipped in insulated green packaging that keeps meals cool (and the planet happy). All components of your packaging are recyclable. Most municipalities will recycle your packaging, alternatively you can find a recycling facility near you below:
Your corrugated box is made from cardboard. Find a recycling facility here.
To recycle your gel pack, let the pouch thaw and cut the corner. Carefully pour contents into trash. Recycle the pouch anywhere #4 plastic is accepted. To dispose, place entire pouch in trash.
Your greenliner padding is made from carpet padding. Find a recycling facility here.
Your greenliner sleeve is made from chip bag foil. Find a recycling facility here.
How we are cultivating a better world
Every choice we make—about who we work with, what we serve, and what we stand for—affects the bigger picture; the health of the planet. Nutrient-rich soil reduces the need for pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, buying locally reduces vehicle emissions from transportation, and humane animal husbandry means diminished reliance on antibiotics. As we strive each day to be better, we keep in mind that everything is connected.
Responsibly raising the bar
We care deeply about where our ingredients come from. While industrial farming practices have evolved to maximize profits and production, we make an extra effort to partner with farmers, ranchers, and other suppliers whose practices emphasize quality and responsibility.
Commitment to the military
Veterans and military spouses play a vital role in strengthening our communities, and our company, through leadership, service and civic engagement. Veterans are more likely to stay socially active, volunteer, and give to charity compared to their nonmilitary counterparts when they return to civil life. That is why we have launched the “Stars and Stripes Initiative” which places an extra effort to hire veterans and military spouses.
Donating to our communities
For each purchase MealPro donates a portion of sales proceeds to feed hungry families in our community.
Our Citizenship Principles:
All of our packaging is BPA free and delivered in 100% recycled cardboard boxes. Your thermal liner is also made from green material.
We offset all of our carbon emissions to renewable energy projects around the world. We believe in supporting a cleaner, greener future.
A portion of each sale goes to fund meals for the hunger banquet where children and families in need are served a warm meal twice daily.
