Homemade Taste without the Hassle: Wegmans Offers Families an Easier Option for Delicious, Complete Thanksgiving Dinners

ROCHESTER, NY , October 30, 2017 -

This Thanksgiving, step away from the stove to make memories and savor time spent with family and friends. Just heat, eat and enjoy. Wegmans complete Thanksgiving dinners are better than ever with improved flavor, prepared exclusively with wholesome, simple ingredients. Hand-carved and ready-to-carve turkeys are slow cooked to perfection, and classic sides like mashed potatoes are made with potatoes, cream, butter and salt --no additives, preservatives or artificial coloring. Chef crafted meals for you to enjoy at home with the ease and convenience of Wegmans catering. 

Making sure Wegmans’ holiday meals contain only fresh, great tasting, simple ingredients and products is part of the company’s longstanding commitment to providing easy meals for busy families. Food You Feel Good About, signified by a bright yellow banner on packages, identifies Wegmans Brand products sold throughout the store that meet a specific set of criteria:

  • Free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Free of trans fats from partially hydrogenated oils
  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • Meat and poultry from animals not given antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products

“We’re incredibly proud of the quality of our holiday dinners and the convenience we’re able to offer busy families. Our catering teams are happy to help put together the perfect menu for any gathering from a selection of dinners and ala carte options prepared with fresh ingredients and care,” says Rene Madara, catering merchant. “Families can enjoy their favorite Thanksgiving dishes just like they would make at home – without all the hassle of prep and clean-up.”

Hand-carved turkey options are priced higher for the convenience factor. Last year, more than 30,000 families enjoyed delicious, stress-free holiday meals by letting Wegmans do the cooking for them.
