KAIGO—a personalized meal delivery service—recently secured $3 million in seed funding from prominent organizations including Micromanagement Ventures and Mike Lee (the founder of the app MyFitnessPal). The health-focused service uses a food-as-medicine approach that offers health-optimized meals from local restaurants directly to individuals.
To begin using KAIGO, consumers must complete an online assessment indicating their health priorities, such as improved sleep, weight management, or increased energy. Afterward, a medical partner of the brand will contact the user within 24 hours for a deeper, more personal dive into the individual's goal. Lastly, KAIGO will work with a partner dietician to create a personalized health plan which can then be implemented with meal deliveries from local chefs and restaurant partners.
The cost of the KAIGO service is a one-time $299 fee (to cover personal assessments), a monthly fee of $249 to have the meals planned, prepared, and delivered as well as the costs of the meals themselves.
