Did you know that Montreal has over 7,000 restaurants? With so many delicious options, the city’s food scene is right up there with New York City for the top spot in North America. But eating out and trying all the food choices Montreal has to offer can get pricey—that’s why meal kit services can be a lifesaver for those looking to cook and eat restaurant-quality food at home.

Not only are meal kit deliveries great for trying out new recipes, they’re a time-saver, allow you to avoid the grocery store, and can help you portion out your meals better. With so many companies to choose from, however, it can be hard to pick the right one. 

Whether you need a meal kit for singles or are cooking for your family, we’ve rounded up the top 8 meal kit delivery services in Montreal from leaders and locals alike.

Lufa Farms

LufaFarms

Lufa Farms produce

Lufa Farms is a grocery delivery service that began (and still operates) as a rooftop greenhouse in Montreal. With over 90,000 Lufavore subscribers, vegetables aren’t the only thing they’ve been growing! 

In reality, Lufa Farms is more than a meal kit delivery service—their specialty is grocery delivery, partnering with companies that share their values of transparency and sustainability to bring a variety of foods to their Lufavores. 

To take advantage of their meal kit delivery service, head to their website, then review recipes in the marketplace. Lufa Farms provides these recipes but you can mix and match ingredients to customize it to your preferences (No cilantro? No problem!).  Some options include Beef Taco Bowls and Chicken Vol-au-vent. They also offer a selection of ready-made meals like Chicken Samosas (yum!). 

How it works 

Becoming a “Lufavore” is free, and as a Lufa Farms subscriber, you’ll receive a curated starter base-basket filled with organic fruits and veggies for $30/week. You can then customize the basket if you wish, as long as your minimum order is $20. Home delivery and pick-up options are available, depending on your location. 

Cook It 

Cook It (Montreal-based meal delivery service) bruschetta

Squash and Maple Bruschetta

Cook It is a local meal kit service that delivers across Quebec and Eastern Canada. Cook It launches 14 new recipes each week, which aim to be quick and simple for novice chefs, averaging about 30 mins prep time. Some of their past recipes include Sirloin Steak and Herb Butter, Pork Bao Buns, and Japanese Soufflé Pancakes. 

How It Works 

Cook It has the flexibility to customize your delivery from the number of recipes, servings, and even the day you’ll get it delivered. You can also choose your delivery frequency—so if you want to skip a week, that’s totally fine! 

A 3-recipe, 2-serving box starts at $65, or roughly $10 per serving. Depending on the number of meals (3 to 7) and servings (2 to 4), the serving prices range from $8.48/serving to $10.83/serving. 

Most meal kit companies focus on sustainability from a food waste perspective, but Cook It takes it a step further by replacing single-use packaging and plastic with 100% reusable dishes. All you have to do is opt into their Sustainable Kit program. Once you’ve emptied and washed your reusable containers, you leave them on your doorstep for the Cook It team to collect and replace with your next box. 

Cook It also has a rewards program in which you can earn and redeem stars for groceries from their pantry. The pantry offers a unique chance to try new foods made locally across Quebec that you can’t find in the grocery store.
