If you don’t already own the miracle-working, everything-in-one, cult-favorite Instant Pot, Jennifer Lopez’s newest venture will convince you to scoop one up. This week, the singer and her fiancé, former New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, introduced Tiller & Hatch Supply Co., the first frozen food delivery service made specifically for pressure cookers. 

The couple teamed up with brand developer Launched.LA to create eight hearty dinners that are super-affordable (they start at $2.85 per serving) and require minimal prep (and, more important, almost zero cleanup). As it turns out, J.Lo and A-Rod aren’t just in it for cozy fall meals like coconut chicken stew and Southwestern-style minestrone. They also want to give back.

When we heard about the students and amazing teachers at Jacksboro Elementary in Tennessee, we knew we had to help.  We heard teachers were helping students bring home food when they didn’t have enough.  When we saw this story, it brought tears not just to my eyes, but Alex’s as well!  I don’t know if you guys know, but Alex and I are part owners in a company called Tiller & Hatch, and we decided to donate a years worth of of their yummy, healthy meals, for the students and their school’s food pantry. 🍽✨ This is why being a business owner, and having actual ownership in companies (not licensing), is so important to me and Alex, especially as Latinos. It’s about showing our community, this is what life can be. You can take charge and take ownership. It allows us to have a say in creating things that make people’s lives better and have partners that share our passion for giving back. Because giving back and being there for others is really what matters most ❤️❤️❤️ We are happy to be in business with partners who also believe no child should EVER have to go to sleep hungry. Everyone should have access to delicious, nutritious food. This was my favorite moment of the month and it’s one of the best things we’ve been able to do. @tillerandhatch #tillerandhatch

After hearing about how teachers at Jacksboro Elementary in Tennessee were sending students home with food, the pair decided to donate a year’s worth of Tiller & Hatch dinners to the school’s pantry. “This is why being a business owner, and having actual ownership in companies (not licensing), is so important to me and Alex,” Lopez wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. Plus, a portion of proceeds from all sales will benefit shelters and charities working to fight hunger. No wonder she went on to refer to this as her “favorite moment of the month.” 

If you want to put your pressure cooker to good use, you can sign up for a subscription or purchase the packages directly at Walmart stores. Considering Instant Pots go for around $100 (or less, if you snag one on Cyber Monday) and the four-meal delivery bundles start at $60 every two weeks, pricey Seamless orders and dining out every single night just got a lot harder to justify.
