***Due to the uncertain times, prices for goods and services, including food, may not remain stable into the near future. The prices listed on our menu are current. However, due to market conditions, these prices are subject to change. If there is an unusual food cost increase for anything on your menu, we will do our best to find a replacement, if this is what you wish to do, to keep your cost stable. Please speak with your Event Coordinator for additional information.

Also, be sure to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram for information on our “Pop-up” weekly meals that will happen on occasion. You may also sign up for our Happenings Email available free on our website for upcoming Meal INN a Box information. Each meal is made for a predetermined number of people. Some feed two (2) people and some feed four (4) or more. We have tried to anticipate your needs for home entertaining but if you have larger groups, you can certainly order multiple boxes.

You may also consider simply having the menu catered. We cannot, however, change the quantities of the boxes. Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate any food allergies or challenges you may face with the menu. Feel free to contact us directly with questions or to discuss your needs. It is difficult, however, to make substitutions. Most of the meals, with the exception of Easter and Thanksgiving, are picked up cold with very, very simple reheating instructions. Easter and Thanksgiving are picked up hot and serve-ready on the morning of the actual holiday. You can order these boxes up to a year in advance. We will begin taking reservations the day after the current holiday for the following year. We encourage you to get your orders in early as we do fill up. You will also be able to order boxes online as well. Boxes will be prepaid and picked up at our Event Center location. The address is 3712 Layton Avenue. From the corner of Lake Elmo Avenue southbound and County Road 14 (Old Highway 5) go east 2 blocks to Layton Avenue. Take a right (south) to our east entrance for pick up. We will bring it to your car. If you have any additional questions regarding our Meals INN a Box, please call our Event Center at 651-779-5994. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.
