How does delivery work?

You will receive an email with a one-hour delivery window the Friday prior to your first delivery.

 

When are the delivery windows?

Deliveries occur on Sunday and Wednesday evenings between 5pm and 10pm.

 

What if the meals arrive at my door and I am not home to receive them?

It is ideal for someone to be available to receive your meals at delivery but our cooler bags will keep your meals cool for about an hour - depending on the outside temperature. Just don't forget to return the cooler bag!


How do the meals arrive?

Your meals will arrive in individual plastic containers in a black cooler bag.

 

Do I need to return the cooler bag?

Yes, please!

If you're home, we will take the cooler bag at that delivery but if not we will pick up your empty cooler bag at your next delivery.

There is a $50 charge for each unreturned cooler bag.

 

Do I need to/can I return the containers?

No, thanks!

For sanitary reasons, we do not ask for the containers to be returned. All of the containers provided are reusable and make great home organizers! If you do not intend to keep them, we encourage you to please recycle.

 

How do I store the meals?

Simply keep them in the refrigerator until you're ready to dig in!

 

How do I heat the meals?

All of our meal containers are microwave-safe.

Some meals (like our salads) do not require heating. To heat, simply open the lid (or remove entirely) and microwave for 1-2 minutes.
Heating time will vary depending on the power of your appliance and personal preference.  
Some meals are made in aluminum pans – please remove the food item from the pan before reheating in the microwave.

 

Can I freeze the meals?

We recommend consuming all meals fresh but some clients do freeze certain meals – like our casseroles, chili and muffins.  

 

I forgot to eat a meal! How long will it last?

We recommend consuming all meals within 3 days of their delivery.

 

Can I add dressings/sauces to the meals?

If you’d like to, sure!
A splash of oil or vinegar with the organic greens would be a nice addition but the meals are perfect to consume as prepared. Of course everyone’s palette is different so if you’d like to add something we recommend checking ingredient labels (if you can’t pronounce it, toss it!) and opting for dressings/sauces without added sugar, preservatives and other faux ingredients.  

 

Are the meals organic/grass-fed/free-range/wild?

We always use real, fresh and quality ingredients and source organic produce and items whenever possible however our meals are not fully organic at this time.
