What if I don't want my box delivered to my home?

No problem! You can update your delivery address inside of your Account Settings. (Select 'Plan Settings' and scroll down to the 'Delivery'tab and click 'Edit' for 'Delivery Address'. )

We suggest one of the following solutions:

  • Get it delivered to a neighbor’s house.
  • Get it delivered to your place of work.
  • Get it delivered to a nearby business or restaurant that won’t mind you picking it up at a later time during that delivery day.

What if I am not home to accept the delivery?

No problem! We'll drop the box at your door (or whatever you specify in your 'Delivery Instructions'), so it will be patiently waiting for you when you get home. No signatures necessary.

When will my box be delivered?

We deliver fresh, amazing meals 7 days a week; however, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for all customers, as well as Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in specific areas. Deliveries typically arrive between 8am and 8pm.

You may track your current order delivery via the "My Menu" page.

My Bundle Box Items arrived at a different day/time than my other items. Is this normal?

Yes. The HelloFresh Bundle Box Items arrive in a separate box and may arrive at a different day or time. After your Bundle Box purchase has been processed, you will receive an order confirmation email including details informing you of this. Additionally, you will receive an email with a tracking link for your delivery once your order has been shipped.

Rest assured, we pack your items inside an insulated box to keep them safe and cold, in case you can’t get to your delivery right away. We even modify our packaging based on season to ensure optimal freshness.

My Bundle Box contains dry ice. How do I safely handle dry ice?

Dry ice is solidified carbon dioxide and is much colder than regular ice. It can burn skin similar to frostbite. As dry ice melts, it turns into carbon dioxide gas and can be a very serious hazard in a small space that isn't well-ventilated. You should wear thick, insulated gloves when handling it and avoid inhaling carbon dioxide gas.

Keep dry ice out of the reach of children and pets. Never eat or swallow dry ice. For safe disposal, allow leftover dry ice to melt and turn into gas in a well-ventilated area. Dry ice can cause carbon dioxide gas to accumulate and build up pressure, do not dispose of dry ice in a sewer, garbage disposal, garbage chute, etc.
