I have never heard of such a thing…. maybe it is some kind of crop share,  but buying food out of a cooler in a van seems really sketchy.

It’s not a scam-  it’s just one of those stupid home delivery food services.  That’s just one company- there’s another one that specializes in eggs, milk, cheese.  They charge more for the delivery and you have to buy in bulk.  Some companies like that do subscriptions where every month or week or whatever they drop off X food and then there are more fees for canceling a subscription. 

They’re perfect if you like your food freezerburned.

Edit: did a little research online and often they misquote you how many lbs and the cost per lb and when you call to complain they magically never get back to you.

It’s a scam (or at the very least, shady), and along the same lines as the speakers scam.

(I have a fairly broad definition of the word “scam,” though.  You’ll get your steak/seafood/speakers/etc, but there will be some sort of catch to it (you overpaid, the item is crappy, you get roped into something else, etc)).

Never heard of this company. The only frozen food vendor that comes by is the icecream man and the occasional Schwanns man.

Do a google search for the name of the company plus the word scam and you’ll see what I found.

I’m a little late to the game….but, we had a meat salesman come by last fall. I don’t know the company name and he talked to my fiance for about 10 minutes before I took over and managed to get rid of him.  He was in a van and had an answer for every objection.  I finally told him we really weren’t interested, we have a side by side that was packed full and had no where to put extra meat…he then tried to sell me a freezer!  Crazy…
