Home cooked meals that feed the whole family
We started Family meals because we wanted to serve the immediate community in the best way we know how, with food. We believe a meal with family can heal wounds, change opinions, and actually change the world. Speaking as Jesse: So much of my life has been influenced by sitting around the table sharing a meal with family and friends alike. Back to my earliest memory in the kitchen with my mother helping her crush the tomatoes for the salsa with my bare hands, to cooking here in my kitchen for your family, I have always loved being a part of the reason we all come together. I have also known from a very young age that sitting around the table together, was a special time.

Meet Chef Jesse
Jesse Smith, is the founder and head chef of Familymeals. Jesse is a Seattle born chef that has over 20 years of professional culinary industry experience. Jesse prior to family meals, was the Executive Chef at several restaurants including Bizzaro café, and Pinkys. With stints at fine dining establishments such as Revel and the Space Needle, Jesse brings fine dining skills to accessible meals designed around what he would make at home for his family.
Raised in Arlington on his family’s farm, he has always had a close connection with food. He now lives in Seattle with his wife and 2 daughters. After watching many of his colleagues struggle to be both a father and a chef, he decided to forge a new path to make time for his family, and began a chef driven hot lunch program for elementary schools, that has been wildly popular with both the Kids and Teachers at the schools his company services, and are expanding rapidly, to new schools. In the 3rd year of this business, Covid-19 happened. As everyone scrambled to figure out the next step, Jesse started FamilyMeals, a community-based meals program, to continue to serve the community he so deeply loves. Jesse is now expanding this program to the greater Seattle area to provide restaurant quality, significant portioned, family style meals that feed anywhere from 4 hungry adults to 8, with leftovers!

“Family meals has saved my sanity many an evening. Knowing that we would get a delicious meal, amazing quality and something everyone in the family loved made it easy for me to justify ordering and me not needing to cook was the cherry on top! Also, since there is always a ton of food – it usually meant a couple of lunches were covered too. Win win all the way around!!”
