Mother, daughter team up for Meals for a Week

When Vicki MacTavish left the emergency room after spraining her ankle, she told her husband, John, the first place they had to go was Meals for a Week. "I fell and sprained my ankle, so I thought, ‘Perfect excuse for a little extra pampering,'' Vicki said. Meals for a Week, 1430 Fulton Ave. in Grand Haven, prepares and delivers home-style meals ready to be preheated and served.

“I would recommend it because it’s their loss if they don’t take advantage of a great opportunity of gourmet food brought to their house,” Vicki said. “They can sit back, watch their favorite movie, have a glass of wine and Chris does the rest.”

Chris McNinch owns the month-old business with her daughter, Erin McNinch-Gates.

McNinch said the idea came to them when her mother-in-law, who lives in Lansing, broke her hip. McNinch spent a week looking for a service that would deliver home-style meals to her mother-in-law, but couldn’t find anything.

“You can (order) curbside at a lot of restaurants, but you still have to go pick it up,” McNinch said.

The two spent nine months completely gutting and renovating the building before opening on June 16.
