At Dream Dinners, our mission is to grow great kids by promoting the family dinner. We are working continuously to strengthen American families by bringing the homemade meal back to the dinner table. For more than a decade, we have work to change the lives of our guests with our Homemade, Made Easy offerings.
Throughout the years we have heard many stories of sadness and hardship, but we continue to hear stories of joy, triumph and reasons to be thankful.

Dream Dinners saved my family. Year 2013-our condo was for sale-in search of a house, we had great jobs, two kids under the age of three and expecting number three! That all started to change one random winter morning when our second son starting having seizures — soon being diagnosed with Atypical Uncontrolled Epilepsy; a horrific condition that keeps you in fear every minute of every day. In addition, we learned that we would be losing our unborn little girl due to complications. Our lives were turned upside down. Too many days off from work, too many hopeless doctors appointments, too many lengthy hospital stays. EVERYONE in our house was being affected right down to the core. We were falling apart-mentally and physically. This is where we are forever grateful for good friends!
“Everyone that I talk to, I talk to them about the fact that I do Dream Dinners and that it is a great way to monitor and lose weight. At my biggest weight, I was 311 pounds and I now weigh 148. Since I’ve started Dream Dinners I have lost 161 pounds, but the best part is not only have I changed physically, I have changed emotionally. I have so many things that I am able to do that I wasn’t able to do before, like ride bikes and playing with my kids, I feel great. It’s a wonderful feeling and I think it brings your spirits up, then you feel like you can do anything. I think I have more confidence and I feel so much healthier. I feel like when I get out of bed in the morning, I feel wonderful. Before I felt so tired and just dragging and now I feel like I have all of this energy and can do so many things. I am so much healthier and a big part of it has been Dream Dinners in my life…“
In June of 2007 I started Weight Watchers and then a month or so later I was invited to a sneak peak at the Poway Dream Dinners. My first question to Phil was if nutritional value was available and was thrilled to see that it was. I made my meal went home and enjoyed it. I got busy with everyday life and a few months later I finally ordered my meals once I reviewed the nutritional information and how it fit into my Weight Watchers Flex Plan.
“One of the things I like about Dream Dinners is how it has improved my family life. I come here with my husband, so that’s date night. We come over, prepare our meals then go and have dinner. And because he was involved in the preparation of the meal he is more likely to want to help me during the week. So, I definitely enjoy that. It was like you know in the movies, you always see that romantic scene where boy and girl are having a glass of wine and making the meal. Well, now I get that.”
