If you’re anything like me, finding value amidst the apocalypse is a priority, especially when it comes to feeding your family. With many restaurants in Kosciusko County offering carryout and delivery options, it has become a little difficult to sort through the onslaught of information to discover family-sized meals. With our normally-two-income family down to one bringing home the proverbial bacon, value, especially when it came to feeding our family of four, has become the nomme de rigueur. So began my quest for family-sized meals.
This list of family-sized meals for carryout/delivery in Kosciusko County isn’t meant to be all-encompassing but it will be updated as new info is brought to my attention. I mean, the end of the world can only last so long and my plethora of snappy French phrases is more of a modicum so hopefully this whole thing ends favorably sooner rather than later. Until then, feast well, my friends, and I’ll see you on the other side someday.
