We definitely want to make sure your food stays fresh on the journey to you, so we make every effort to ensure that each box arrives at your doorstep with all meals at the appropriate temperatures. We carefully pack our boxes with insulated thermal liners and refrigerants to maintain appropriate temperatures during transit and delivery, and our team regularly assess the efficacy of our packaging and makes modficiations as needed. That said, we do advise that you place all perishable items in the refrigerator immediately upon delivery, understanding that you are receiving temperature sensitive ingredients. Depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advance planning may be needed to ensure immediate and proper storage of meals prior to consumption.
