Delivery

With HelloFresh, customers enjoy the convenience of receiving fresh ingredients right to their homes. Customers must select their meals by 11:59 of the day their box would be scheduled. Deliveries typically arrive on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for all customers, as well as Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in specific areas between 8 am and 8 pm. HelloFresh delivers to the entire continental United States.

Meals come in an insulated Styrofoam cooler box along with ice packs to keep ingredients fresh. In addition, meats and fish come stored in insulated vacuum-sealed bags made from recyclables. The packaging is made almost entirely of recyclable materials. However, some customers report malfunctions with their packaging.
