Organic food delivery nationwide
Sweet Roots NYC (sweetrootsnyc.com)
For: Picky eaters and those with dietary restrictions.
Founder Marisa Claire Smith, 26, started the company in 2012 because she needed to follow a particular diet for “some ailments.” But she says that the sourcing and cooking was “drudgework.”
Sweet Roots works with clients to find out their specific food needs, and makes getting ingredients for meals to them as easy as possible.
“I want to have deep and meaningful relationships with my clients, ” Smith says.

How it works: Sweet Roots starts with a 20-minute phone consult about your diet needs (vegan, gluten-free allergies, hatred of onions, etc.), so the company can build your preference profile.
Farm-sourced ingredients are then delivered to the customer’s door, washed and prepped, and organized by meals. You cook it yourself — but must have your own salt, pepper and olive oil. Sweet Roots promises that your meal will be cooked in 30 minutes or less and that it’s easy to clean up.
Cost: Breakfast is $15, lunch, $20, dinner, $25. Delivery fee is $10. If you want your meals designed around your specialized diet, add $100 a month. For 0 a month, you’ll get weekly check-ins and extra support from their menu planner; meals not included.
Sample meals: A seafood option might be maple-mustard roasted Arctic char with crisped millet chive cakes, and a spinach side salad with strawberries; a vegan option could be spinach linguine with chickpeas, acorn squash, sorrel, basil and olive oil served with a spring herb salad.

Sweet Roots NYC delivery representative Dan Richards delivers two ready-to-cook meals to Carolyn Lanzetta at her Gramercy Park apartment.
For: Kids whose busy parents want healthy (organic, seasonal, locally sourced) meals for them.
Founder Isabel Gunther loved cooking for her now-3-year-old, but recognized that many mothers she knew didn’t have time to cook — or just didn’t like to.
Her service, Gunther says, “helps moms because it provides the food that they want to give their kids but don’t necessarily have time to cook. It’s important that kids know what real food is .”
How it works: Order à la carte or by subscription for home delivery; order by subscription for delivery to participating schools.
Cost: Dinners $10.95 plus tax; school lunches $8.65 plus tax.
Delivery zone: Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Fort Greene and Brooklyn Heights.
