Our Sustainability Commitment


"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." —Native American Proverbs


Today and everyday we honor a figure that has nurtured us for generations: Mother Earth. 

A thriving planet means our future generations can experience her beauty and bounty. For no stronger reason than preserving a brighter world for our children and theirs, we commit to using environmentally responsible practices across our operations.

Throughout the year, we continually reimagine our packaging materials to better care for you and Mother Earth, while upholding the highest quality meals and products that nourish your bodies, minds, and spirits.

Our Promises 

We are dedicated to creating a vibrant, bright future for our planet, one meal at a time. We promise to:

Choose thoughtful, sustainable packaging which is recyclable or compostable.

Minimize food waste by creatively using all parts of our produce and proteins in your meals—from seed to stem. 

Thoughtfully source from farmers and ranchers who practice sustainable and regenerative farming and livestock raising.

Inspire people to nourish their bodies, supporting a diverse and organic food ecosystem.

How We Are Doing

1. Better-for-the-Planet Packaging

We package all soups and stews in reusable, recyclable glass jars, more sustainable for the planet and cleaner for your body. We commit to never using oil-based plastic containers which can leach endocrine disruptors into food and water.

We use 100% compostable meal trays and snack bags, made of paper and corn starch, which composts into soil in 120 days in a commercial composting facility.

Our box liners are made with post-consumer recycled paper and are 100% curbside recyclable.

Our boxes are made with post-consumer recycled corrugated cardboard and taped with compostable, recyclable, water-activated tape printed with soy ink.

2. From Root to Leaf

Through careful planning and composting, we keep our food waste below 1% in our kitchen operations. We work creatively to make use of all the parts of our ingredients. For example, we simmer our nutrient-rich sweet potato skins and mushroom stems in our nourishing stocks that become the base of many meals, and we’ve crafted dishes like our Warming Beet Soup which uses all the nutrient-dense parts of the plant, from root to leaf.

3. Partnerships with Sustainable Farmers

We continue to source organic, high quality ingredients from environmentally responsible farms and suppliers, whose produce is both sustainable and clean for the planet and more nutritious for nourishing our bodies.

4. Every Meal Creates a Positive Impact

By selectively sourcing humanely raised animals from environmentally responsible farmers and ranchers, we strive to minimize our contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, while upholding the highest quality meals and nutrition that nourish your body for this important recovery moment.

As part of our Giving Back commitment to donate 2% of total sales, we pledge to donate one dollar to OneTreePlanted for every order of a Meal Program or Gift Box.

However, the work doesn’t stop here. We continue to research and reimagine ways to better care for you and the planet. Thank you for joining us on this journey—one in which we feel deeply connected to the Earth, to each other, and to our greater purpose. 

With love & light,

  • What is Ritual Meals?

    Ritual Meals is a postpartum meal delivery service. Our signature postpartum meal delivery product is The Postpartum Program, which includes meals, snacks, and teas shipped weekly to your doorstep. Customers receive orders with all the fresh meals, snacks, and teas you need to enjoy nourishing postpartum food prepared by our chefs. We save you the time and energy of going to the grocery store, finding new recipes, meal planning, and portioning.

    Our talented chefs work with our Wellness Team to create new menus each week for you, based on what’s seasonally available from our community of local farms and ranches. We use the highest quality ingredients which are organic or pesticide free produce and grass-fed or pasture-raised animals.

  • What are the benefits of postpartum food and Ritual Meals?

    We understand that, as a new mom, you've got one of the hardest jobs in the world—so we created The Postpartum Program to help you heal and feel your best after giving birth. Our postpartum meals are nutritionally designed to support your physical recovery, energy levels, hormonal balance, milk supply and quality, and mood. At Ritual Meals, we are serious about supporting your postpartum nourishment and postpartum wellness journey. Everything we cook is made with the highest quality, whole food ingredients, good for you and your baby, whether or not you are breastfeeding.

    Our postpartum nutrition philosophy is focused on food as medicine.

    Our postpartum meals include both plated food and soups and stews which are more easily digestible and improve absorption of essential minerals and vitamins that the body needs to repair, restore, and fortify after birth or surgery. Grass-fed and pasture-raised animal stock are the base of all of our soups and stews, supplying essential nutrients, lean protein, and collagen to boost energy, support and heal connective tissues, and support healthy metabolism.

    If you are breastfeeding, our postpartum meals can provide measurable benefits for your milk supply and quality. Our postpartum meals often include galactagogues (ingredients which support milk supply and quality), including flax seeds, oats, tahini, brewer’s yeast, and more. We also avoid ingredients that could be associated with colic or sensitivities for breastfed babies, including cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and hot peppers.

    * This program is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. We recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to starting this program if you have a medical condition or are taking any prescription medication or nutritional supplements.

  • How much does Ritual Meals Cost?

    The Postpartum Program at Ritual Meals is priced starting at $176 per week. Meal frequency per week can be customized, which changes the cost of the program. As well, if you opted into our Subscription option, you can save up to 10% each week and receive free delivery with promo code FREESHIPPING.  Customize your postpartum plan to view prices.

  • What kinds of ingredients does Ritual Meals use?

    All meals are made to order and made from scratch with the highest quality ingredients. We prioritize local and organic produce and use only meat sourced from local farms that sustainably and humanely raise their animals. Our animals are always grass-fed or pasture-raised. Our produce is plant rich, organic or pesticide-free, low gluten, no refined sugars, and non-GMO.

    Organic or pesticide-free, whole, unprocessed foods are both more nutritive and more flavorful. We thoughtfully pair ingredients based on complementary benefits. For example, these pairings—lentils and red bell pepper, sesame and salmon, pasture-raised eggs and leafy greens, and chicken and quinoa—allow you to absorb more nutrients and experience their healing benefits.

  • What if I have allergy or dietary needs?

    Due to the small size of our culinary team, we are currently unable to offer substitutions in our menus, which are set weekly. To receive weekly email notifications about our upcoming menus which lists our full ingredients, please subscribe to our newsletter below.

    Please note: our Postpartum Program is not intended for severe allergies. If you have any questions about how we can support your dietary needs, please reach out to our Wellness Team at

  • How do you keep food fresh in transit? What if I am not home?

    We pack the postpartum meals fresh with care using 100% recyclable, insulated boxes and drain safe gel packs designed to keep your food refrigerated on the way to your doorstep.

    We understand that when it comes to birth, timing may not always happen according to plan. We highly recommend recruiting the help of a friend, neighbor, or family member so that if you aren’t able to get to your food when it arrives at your doorstep, they can help you store it in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy them.

    The delivery driver should leave the package for you at your door with no signature required. We package our postpartum meals in 100% recyclable insulated liners with drain-safe gel packs, so that your food stays refrigerated in transit. If you have any concerns with the temperature or condition of your meals once delivered, please contact our Wellness Team at
