Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my order take to be delivered?
As we custom-make your order, your delicious ready-to-eat meals are delivered to your door in 2-3 days. We deliver every day, 11am-9pm.
Why are Heritage Foods products so inexpensive?
As part of our mission to improve community through food, we believe it is critical that customers in our area can access our meals. To this end, we keep a very low profit margin and rely on a manufacturing model instead of a restaurant model to keep costs as low as possible.
What sort of packaging do you use?
We use plant-based containers that are compostable. As we work to improve the health of our community through food, we want to mitigate the negative environmental impacts of our products as much as possible, and many plastic-based containers leach marine-toxic chemicals into the ocean, where they often end up.
What does low glycemic load mean?
Low-glycemic load refers to the level of metabolically available carbs in a particular food. It’s the best indicator of how a food affects your blood sugar and insulin levels. Low-glycemic load diets have been linked to reduced risks for cancer, heart disease, and other conditions. Learn more.
How do your source your ingredients?
We study mainstream and craft supply chains to determine how to get the best quality ingredients that adhere to our four nutrition fundamentals into the products that we prepare for you.
Is your food prepared in a nut-free environment?
No, we use nuts in our salads and dessert recipes, in particular.
Why is this better than a meal kit?
Far less waste, far greater time saving.
