The Healthy Meal Delivery Service Will Deliver Fresh Meals to Member Homes

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Organically grown meal delivery company DeliverLean expands its footprint with the launch of a new program for seniors called DeliverLean CARE, set to launch in January 2020 in partnership with Humana and CarePlus Health Plans. DeliverLean CARE will deliver meals to some Hu-mana and CarePlus Medicare Advantage members discharged from hospitals at no additional cost as part of their health plan.

This is just the latest project in DeliverLean's expansion. Under the leadership of Founder and CEO Scott Harris, the company has grown at an unprecedented rate and is still expanding. De-liverLean CARE's senior meals will address different chronic health conditions like Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cardiovascular Disease. A team of world class chefs and dietitians designed 6 specialty meal plans including General Wellness, Diabetic (Carb-Controlled), Low Sodium, Vegetarian, Pureed and Kosher. The menu items focus on transparency of ingredients and take into consideration comfort foods and the simplicity of meals for seniors. Some meals include Chicken Parmesan, Lasagna, Chimichurri Steak, Huevos Rancheros and Pan Seared Flounder.

"We're excited to bring fresh, healthy meals to our members when they are discharged from a hospital stay," said Alan Stewart, Humana Senior Vice President and Division Leader. "Our mis-sion is to provide whole person health care for our Medicare Advantage members and that goes beyond the care they receive in the hospital to ensure they have the support they need for a full recovery."

DeliverLean has had national recognition being ranked the 124th fastest growing company in the nation and 8th in the national food and beverage category by Inc. 500. The company     current-ly operates out of a 60,000-square-foot USDA/FDA-certified kitchen in Hollywood, FL and em-ploys upwards of 300 people.

"Together with Humana and CarePlus Health Plans, we are focused on empowering people by giving them access to healthy, fresh food delivered to their door," said DeliverLean CEO Scott Harris. "We're thankful that Humana and CarePlus are taking a preventative approach and be-lieve this benefit will greatly improve many lives while helping to reduce health care costs and lower hospital readmissions."

The meals are deli-vered overnight directly to homes and are ready to heat and eat in under 2 minutes.
