  • What happens to the box & ice packs after I have received my order?
    To reduce the environmental impact we recycle all our styrofoam boxes and ice packs. Therefore, we ask that you please leave the styrofoam box and ice packs outside for us to pick up when we deliver your next order, or at a time arranged with you.
  • What if it is left out on a hot day?
    Orders will always be delivered in the styrofoam boxes with ice packs, however it is important that you direct us to place your delivery in a shady place. Ordering your meals frozen is a great option for the warmer months.
  • If I’m not home, how long can the box be left outside?
    Meals are delivered to you in an insulated styrofoam box with ice packs! Don’t worry if you are not home when we deliver, as your meals will stay cold for up to 6 hours. Or order your meals frozen for peace of mind. Alternatively arrange to get your meals delivered to your office or left at a next door neighbours if they know that they will be home.
  • What will my meals be delivered in?
