Click Now, Serve Later

If you’re a little spent on cooking, let our chefs prepare your family’s next holiday meal. Reserve a fully cooked spiral ham, all your favorite sides, appetizers, rolls, desserts and more online now. Don’t forget our party perfect options, like plump shrimp platters, elegant cheese platters and fresh fruit and crudité platters. Check your local store’s online ordering site to see what’s offered.

Everything on our menu is made with the same high-quality ingredients and standards that apply in our aisles, including no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives, and no hydrogenated fats.

All of that deliciousness can be reserved online or with the help of a Team Member at our in-store Holiday Tables, and it’ll be ready to pick up at your local store.

Don’t Forget the Ham

Our crowd-pleasing spiral-cut ham is ready to heat and eat – easy! It serves up the flavor you’re craving without synthetic nitrates or nitrites. And all of our hams come from pigs raised with no antibiotics, ever, no animal by-products in their feed and no added growth hormones*.

While delicious on its own, a few simple additions can put a fun, personal spin on your spiral-cut ham. Just reheat with whole cloves or rosemary springs tucked between the spiral cuts. Or glaze and serve with Dalmatia Sour Cherry Spread or Maple and Orange Marmalade.

*Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones when raising pork.

Product selection may vary by store. If you have any questions contact your store directly
