Starting the first week in August 2020, the Meals INN a Box will no longer be offered on a weekly basis. However, going forward we will be offering them for every holiday throughout the year. Over the years, we have had many requests to offer something similar to our Thanksgiving pick up meals for other holidays. Now we have the perfect solutions for you. As always, the Meals INN a Box will be picked up at the Event Center. Thanksgiving will be the only holiday that will be packaged for a larger group. This meal will continue to feed 10-12 guests. All other holidays will be offered in boxes that will feed 2 people and you can order multiple boxes if you have a larger group. Thanksgiving and Easter will be the two meals that are picked up hot and serve ready on the actual holiday, but at this time, all the other holiday menus will be picked up cold a day or two before the holiday and include easy reheating instructions for you. We have designed all the Holiday Meals INN a Box menus in advance for the next year. I think you will enjoy them all. If you visit our website at and select the Meals INN a Box tab, you can see the menus for the entire year of holidays. As with our restaurant reservations, you can order up to a year in advance. Although it is unlikely, we do reserve the right to alter the menu and/or price based on product availability. We will fill up on those big holidays, so order early if you are interested. Here are the holidays menus for the rest of 2020:
