SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Feastin*, a meal delivery platform designed by restaurants, for restaurants, has announced new menu items and partners for the month of March, including meal kits for Passover and Easter from Bay Area restaurants, and delivery from “Top Chef” contestant Nelson German’s restaurants. Launched by restaurateurs Sebastiaan Van De Rijt and Hannah Wagner of Bamboo Asia in October 2020, Feastin was established to directly support the restaurant industry, local farmers and purveyors, while elevating at-home dining experiences. With a zero-commission structure for its partners, every dollar consumers spend on a meal kit or prepared food goes directly back to the restaurant. Feastin users can also shop for groceries on the marketplace, making the site a one-stop shop for all meal planning needs.

Feastin manages their own deliveries, making it possible for every item to be delivered across the Bay Area - from San Francisco to as far north as Napa and Sonoma, south through San Jose and east to Walnut Creek. One simple 20% fee covers contactless delivery, service, tax, and tip for the company’s full-time drivers, all of whom are food handler-certified and wear masks. Unless otherwise noted, Feastin orders made before 2pm are delivered in two days.
