How long will my meals keep in the refrigerator?

We recommend enjoying your Spirited Food Co. meals within 4 days for best results. This is not an expiration date but a suggested "best by" date. Some meals may last longer (up to 6 days) depending on ingredients used. For example, some veggies will last longer than others. Of course, this is provided that the meals are refrigerated immediately upon receipt and kept in a refrigerator that is cooling adequately. If you do not plan to enjoy your meal within 4 days after pickup or delivery, another option would be to freeze the meal to have at a later time. Once a meal is opened and/or re-heated, it should be enjoyed right away.

What oils or seasonings are used in the Paleo / AutoImmune Protocol (AIP) items? 

All ingredients used in the Paleo / AIP menu items are listed for each meal. We only use olive oil, Kosher salt, garlic, onion, and the herbs/seasonings specified in the description for each dish.

When can I pick up meals? 

Meals will be available for pickup on Tuesdays and Fridays. You will receive a text letting you know when your order is ready. All orders must be picked up by 6pm.

Do I need to be home to receive my order delivery?

No. You will receive a text notification when your order is picked up, and another when it has been delivered. However, you will need to place your meals in the refrigerator as soon as possible. We recommend placing your meals in the refrigerator within 15 minutes of delivery during the summer months, and within an hour of delivery during the colder months.
