How It Works

Create your account by visiting the My Account tab or clicking the button below. Then in the Meal Delivery page, select how many meals you’d like to receive each week, choose your meals from our weekly menu, and sit back and wait for them to be delivered!

Change your selections at any time within your account. Since our menus change every week, if you do not choose your meal preferences, we’ll send you an assorted box of all the options.

If you’d like to add some of our add-ons or just an extra meal or two to your delivery, select the One-Time Order option to add things like freshly-made focaccia, vegan bolognese sauce, and locally-brewed kombucha. Please note that add-on items cannot be changed after purchase.

Delivery

Meals are delivered to your doorstep between 10:00am-8:00pm on Mondays. On weeks with a holiday Monday, meals will be delivered on Tuesday. On the day of delivery you’ll receive a notification via text and email with a more precise delivery window.

If you are close by or outside of our delivery area and would like to pick up your meals, you can select the Free Local Pickup option at checkout. Our pick up time is 10:00am-11:00am every Monday. If that Monday is a holiday, pickup time is moved to that Tuesday at 10:00am-11:00am.

Ordering opens on Monday and will need to be in by Friday at 5:00pm to be delivered the following Monday.

Since we are currently operating under a no-contact delivery policy, our drivers will give a quick ring or knock to let you know your meals have arrived and they will leave your meals on the doorstep.

If you would like the meals to be left someplace other than the front door (e.g. side door, side porch, etc.), please indicate that in the Special Delivery Instructions section of your account.

Packaging

We are proud to say that at The Empowered Vegan we use 100% plastic-free packaging to deliver our meals. Our salad containers, soup containers, and bag are sourced from a local company and are 100% compostable. Our oven-ready meal containers are also 100% recyclable.

Shelf Life

All of our meals have been tested to last up to 5 days in the fridge so you can have fresh and tasty meals all week long. Some meals may keep up to 7 days but we recommend that you eat more perishable meals such as Buddha Bowls and salads earlier in the week.

If one week you aren’t able to eat all of your meals, all of our oven-ready meals can be frozen to be eaten later and will keep up to 1 month in the freezer.
