A meal delivery service (MDS) is a service that sends customers fresh or frozen[1], prepared meals delivered to their homes.[2] These services individually package pre-portioned meals to assist with eating a healthy diet. These services cook and prepare meals for customers. Meals may come in small tupperware containers and are often labeled with nutritional information. There are also many options for specific diet types like vegetarian and vegan. These services often operate on a subscription business model rather than by individual order as in pizza delivery or with the broader category of online food ordering.

An alternate type of meal delivery service is a meal kit, which distributes ingredients and recipes that customers prepare themselves.[3]
