Expect delivery to your home within 2 to 14 days, depending on your location and the shipping option you select. Whenever possible, we will accommodate your request to ship to a P.O. Box. Shipping internationally will incur additional shipping charges and may be subject to restrictions on shipping food items to your country.
We ship the majority of most in-stock orders within 1 business day of receipt (Monday to Friday). On occasion, there may be a shipping delay due to a spike in sales, major holidays, or emergencies including hurricanes, blizzards, other natural disasters, or airport/delivery service shutdowns.
We encourage our customers to plan ahead and be prepared for a possible emergency. Our membership model is designed to keep you prepared, year after year. However, we are not responsible or liable if your kit arrives after the onset of an emergency situation.
If you move or your shipping address changes for any reason, please notify us of your new shipping address BEFORE your next Replacement Kit ship date. If you do not give us your updated shipping address and we ship a product to your old address, you will be responsible for the cost of the product.
All sales of our food items are final. We do not guarantee the freshness or quality of individual food items in your kit. We strive to provide products to you with best-by dates that are least 14 days past the six-month date of your order, whenever possible. The best-by date provides an indication of when the product will still have peak flavor; it is not the same as an expiration date. However, if you find any of the food is defective when you receive your new kit or Replacement Kit, please let us know promptly and we will make every attempt to replace the item.
