How long will it take to receive my order and how do I track it?

What are the shipping delivery time frames?

The processing and delivery time frame will take up to 1 to 5 business days from when the order is placed. However, this time frame may take up to 10 business days if the carrier experiences any delays.

If your order includes frozen foods, they will arrive in a separate shipment from your non-frozen foods. These portions may not be shipped on the same date and may arrive at your residence separately. Please note, our warehouse packs dry ice in frozen shipments to keep your food frozen for the duration of the delivery. In general, your food will remain frozen for approximately 4 to 6 hours once delivered. We recommend you unpack your frozen order and place in your freezer upon delivery.

Dry Ice Warning: Do not handle with bare hands.  Contact with bare skin may cause severe burns or frostbite.  Always use heavy gloves.  The dry ice should be contained in a plastic bag.  Don’t worry if the bags have opened in transit.  Leave the dry ice in the cooler and then place the cooler in a well-ventilated area.  Keep out of the reach of children.  One of the more fun features of dry ice is how it sublimates.  That said, if you open your cooler and there’s no dry ice left, it’s not the end of the world.  If your meals arrive partially frozen or very cold to the touch like you’ve just taken it out of the refrigerator (temperature below 40 degrees Fahrenheit), they’re perfectly safe to eat per USDA guidelines.  Simply refreeze and serve as normal.

How can I track my order(s) and view my order history?

To track your order, you can click the link in the email you received notifying you of the shipment. Please keep in mind that if your order contains frozen foods, you will receive two emails, each containing a separate tracking number for the non-frozen portion and frozen portion.
