Does MOW deliver in inclement weather?
We try our best to deliver meals on schedule, but if the weather is very bad and roads are not passable, the kitchen will be closed or deliveries may be delayed for the safety of our drivers and kitchen crew. All clients are notified by telephone if we will not be delivering. We also provide emergency bags each year with provisions to use on days when the kitchen is closed due to inclement weather.
How do I reheat my meal?
The plastic trays are microwave safe so meals can be reheated in your microwave. If you don't have a microwave you can switch the food to your own baking dish and warm it in a conventional oven.
