Frequently asked questions

Meals are made fresh on the day of your delivery. We recommend consuming them within 5-7 days.

You can also easily freeze your meals. Just get them out of the freezer 1 day before consumption and put them in the fridge to slowly thaw out.

Your meals come fresh! We take pride in working with local distributors for fresh produce at all times.

We recommend storing your meals in a refrigerator set at or below 40° F (4° C).

One of the biggest mistakes people make is stuffing the fridge too full. When foods block the flow of air, it makes the fridge work harder and leaves certain areas of the fridge warmer than others.

Don’t place foods against the back or sides of the fridge, and aim to keep all of the food separated by about half an inch. This ensures that air can flow between the spaces in the fridge, and foods will be less likely to become rancid.

The refrigerator should also be cleaned as it gets dirty, but a full cleaning of the sides of the fridge once every three months is recommended. To do this, take all of the trays out of the refrigerator and clean them with hot, soapy water. It’s also a good idea to use a solution of diluted bleach to adequately kill bacteria. A good ratio is about one tablespoon of bleach for every gallon of water. Because many shelves have double-walled glass, it’s important to avoid soaking shelves. If water gets in between the glass, it can cause a situation that allows mold and mildew to thrive.

Don’t open the containers until ready to eat. The less you open your meals, the less chance for exposure to mostuire, air contaminants, or anything nearby potentially hazardous.

Keep meals cold when on the go. If you’re on the go, and you’re not consuming your meal within the 30 mins, we recommend packing your meal in a cooler or heavily insulated lunch box with an ice block. The more warm air your food is exposed to, creates an environment for your bacteria to grow. If you leave your meal in a cooler all day and don’t eat it, we DO NOT recommend putting it back in the fridge for another date. When food travels through a variety of temperatures, it will most likely grow mold quickly.
