Unfortunately, we do not offer a direct to customer program at this time. We are able to work with community clinics, insurers (including Medicaid and MedicareAdvantage), employer wellness programs, restaurants, and other institutional food vendors. If you have relationships with any of these, we may be able to work with them to add SWEGS as an optional benefit, if it does not already exist.

If I am on a meal program, how do I assure my dietary restrictions are taken into account?

Your medical provider will determine which of our meals suit your dietary restriction needs. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact one of our representatives via email at [email protected] or via phone at (800) 348-5059.
