The New Parkway Theater is bringing back its food crates, chock-full of healthy, prepared food that you can eat right away, keep for a few days, or even freeze some of the items for later enjoyment. Nearly all of the items will arrive cold, and all that you will need to do is heat and serve. All ingredients are fresh, sourced locally whenever possible, and are prepared fresh in our commercial kitchen.
Unlike a traditional take-out menu, you are NOT ordering the specific dishes that will come in your crate. Instead, you are telling us if you’d like a full crate (delivered) or a half crate (pick-up only) and your dietary restrictions, and then we will fill the crate accordingly with a balanced selection of 8 seasonal dishes (one quart each for a full crate, one pint each for a half crate). The list of possible items for each week is just that: possibilities. You may be familiar with a community supported agriculture (CSA) box where you eat from the bounty of the farm for that particular week, and you should think of this as a CSR, or a community supported restaurant. Only you don’t need to sign up for an extended period of time. You may sign up for weekly service or one time only.
Another thing that’s different about our service compared to traditional take-out joints is that everything will be delivered in reusable and recyclable containers. We ask that you kindly return the plastic containers to us or reuse them yourself. And if you’re getting a half-crate, please arrive with a bag to carry away your goodies.
Delivery Zone and Delivery Times: Crates will be ready for delivery and pick-up on Tuesdays. The target delivery time is 1-5pm, and we will deliver full crates to the following cities: Oakland, Alameda, Piedmont, San Leandro, Emeryville, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, and Kensington. If you live outside of these cities or have ordered a half-crate, you may pick up your crate from the theater between 4-6pm. Please note that you will only receive correspondence from us about your purchase the day beforehand. It will come via email and will be sent to the address registered with PayPal.
Placing and Tailoring Your Order: We want you to get a crate that you’ll love but we cannot accommodate every possible dietary preference or restriction. For the dates below, you may choose a dietary preference/restriction (omnivore, no red meat, dairy-free, vegetarian, or vegan) and list up to one omission (no gluten, no nuts, no cilantro, no pork, not spicy). Any additional requests will be charged up to $10/crate. Please know that omnivore crates are just that and not entirely carnivore; plenty of non-meaty items in those crates too! The one thing you will not find in any of our crates is seafood, including shellfish.
Please be careful when placing your order. If you need to make changes after you submit, there may be a fee involved. Take a look at our cancellation policy and contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
