Baltimore-based technology company DinnerTime Inc. announced Wednesday it has signed an agreement with Johns Hopkins HealthCare to provide Johns Hopkins Employer Health Programs members with free access to DinnerTime’s personalized meal planning and sale-smart shopping service.
Johns Hopkins EHP members can sign up for DinnerTime free-of-charge when using their EHP membership number and referral code as part of their EHP benefits package.
Using “what’s on sale this week” at a favorite local grocery store, DinnerTime’s mobile-friendly web app automatically creates a week of highly personalized, delicious meal recommendations based upon a person’s, or family’s, tastes, budget and time constraints, as well health concerns, food allergies and other dietary restrictions and preferences. As a result, DinnerTime users save time and money, and eat healthier and tastier meals.
“We’re very pleased to work with Johns Hopkins Employer Health Programs,” DinnerTime CEO Laura Moore said. “Johns Hopkins is a world renowned leader in healthcare delivery and the largest private employer in Maryland. We look forward to serving up many millions of healthy meal recommendations and shopping savings to their EHP insured members in the coming years.”
Sharon Lacy, a vice president of wellness initiatives at DinnerTime, said DinnerTime is an exciting addition to the benefits available to EHP members.
“Indeed, recent research published by faculty at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has shown how important it is to encourage people to make more meals at home, and eat less takeout and restaurant food. Helping members save time and money, eating delicious healthy meals made-at-home is great preventive medicine.”
DinnerTime’s powerful personalization engine combines artificial intelligence, nutritional science and behavioral science to achieve an unparalleled consumer meal-planning and sale-smart shopping experience. In addition to being available as a monthly or annual subscription, DinnerTime partners with employers, health plans, health associations, and grocers. DinnerTime includes weekly sales at more than 7,500 grocery stores nationwide and has more than 10 million potential meal combinations with kitchen-tested recipes to address every need, taste and budget.
