This month in foodd trends, sports complexes began to reopen with new safety protocols and noncommercial operators delved into meal kits.

In these unprecedented times, meal kits have taken on important new roles: a way to serve your customers in a virtual/grab-and-go world; convenience during changing routines; a source of fun (hello, family pizza night!); and more seriously, a lifeline of good nutrition for kids, seniors and everyone in between.

Boxes and bags loaded up with good nutrition, convenient heat-and-eat items, fresh produce, treats and more: meal kits are a great way to serve your customers in these crazy times.
