To place a catering order please submit a quote request through our website or email us at email@example.com. We will provide you with pricing information and confirm whether we can fulfil your order. All pricing information for catered orders is subject to change in the event any of the details of your event change, or there are changes to your order. Any order changes are subject to our acceptance. Unfortunately, we will not accept order changes made within five (5) days of the catered event. We may also impose a minimum order quantity or dollar amount.
You agree to pay a fifty percent (50%) non-refundable deposit upon placing your order and the balance owing to us at least five (5) days in advance of your catered event. When your deposit is made, we will reserve the delivery date specified. However, we cannot make any guarantees that we can, or will, facilitate an amendment to your delivery date.
We reserve the right to cancel any order, or not deliver any order to you where the full balance owing to us is not received at least five (5) days in advance of your event. In such circumstances, you will forfeit your deposit.
You agree to return all non-consumable or non-disposable property that comes with your catered food order including, for example, chafing dishes, dishware, cutlery and pans. Where you fail to return such property, you agree that we will bill you, and we may charge your payment method on file with us, for the full replacement costs.
Our delivery times for catered orders are estimates only and may vary based on factors such as traffic, the number of deliveries in your area, acts of force majeure and other factors outside our control. If you have a strict event timeline, you should specify a delivery time well in advance of your event. For hot orders, food temperature will cool during delivery, however, we will provide re-heating and serving instructions. We may use third party delivery contractors to delivery your order, as specified below.
For payment and billing terms related to catering services, please see below. Tips to our delivery drivers and staff are welcome but not required.
Subscriptions and Delivery
We offer weekly subscription packages.
We deliver our subscription meals on Monday each week. Generally, deliveries are completed between 10:30 am and 5:30 p.m., however, we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time. We, or our delivery service provider(s), can share approximate delivery times on the delivery date, if requested. However, our delivery times are only estimates and may vary based on factors such as traffic, the number of deliveries in your area, acts of force majeure and other factors outside our control. In rare circumstances, we may need to cancel or delay a delivery past the expected delivery date.
In the event someone is not available to receive your delivery at the Delivery Address, you agree that we may leave your order with a concierge (if applicable and available); or leave your order outside your front door or as instructed by you. If we leave your order with a concierge, it is your responsibility to ensure that appropriate instructions are provided to us and the concierge who will be handling your order.
You agree that where someone is not available at the Delivery Address to receive your order, we shall not be responsible or liable for any lost or stolen orders or the loss or theft of our bags. It is your responsibility to ensure there is a safe place to deliver or leave all orders. In the event of an unreturned, lost or stolen delivery bag and/or ice packs, you agree to pay, and that we may bill to your credit card, the replacement costs of the bag and/or ice packs. We may also elect to make subsequent deliveries using paper bags.
You further agree and acknowledge that our deliveries may be made by third-party independent delivery businesses or contractors.
Your credit card will be billed prior to delivery, whether we are delivering catered food, one-off orders or subscription orders. For subscribers, the date of your next charge can be viewed in your account on the Website. Where you provide a credit card for your subscription or orders online, your card information is collected via Stripe (see https://stripe.com/ca). You agree to only use a credit card that is held in your own name, as specified in your online account with us.
For catering services, we may bill your credit card for an initial deposit of fifty percent (50%) of your order total. You may also elect to send us an email money transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. For any balance owing on or after the event date, you authorize us to bill your credit card via Stripe or WAVE. You agree and acknowledge that our payment processors may have their own terms and conditions and privacy policies which apply to the collection and use of your personal and credit card information.
For billing related questions, or questions related to our payment processors, please contact us at email@example.com
Your next billing date is available in your account. Where you purchase a food delivery subscription, your subscription will automatically renew each week, or where applicable, each month (i.e. every four weeks), subject to your account being paused or a week of deliveries being skipped (see below). For example, if you subscribed to a weekly subscription on a Monday, your subscription will automatically renew each Monday and your credit card will be billed. If you subscribed to a monthly subscription, your subscription will renew every four weeks and your credit card will be billed for the full four weeks, in advance.
Pausing a Weekly Subscription
For weekly subscriptions, we permit users to pause or skip a specific number of weeks and reactivate a subscription from within their online account. However, to allow us to properly purchase ingredients, we require at least seven (7) days’ notice to pause a weekly subscription from your next billing date. Your next billing date is indicated in your account. Where you pause a subscription within seven (7) days from your next billing date, you will receive and be billed for any final deliveries made.
Skipping a Week of Deliveries for a Monthly Subscription
Unfortunately, we do not permit our monthly subscription plans to be paused, however, you can elect to skip one week of deliveries. To do so, you must provide us with at least 7 days’ notice in your account. To specify the week you would like to skip, follow the instructions in your account settings.
Help with Your Account, Cancellation and Refunds
If you are unable to access your account, or require assistance with pausing or skipping deliveries or cancelling your account, please send a notice of your intent to pause or cancel your subscription via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (the “Cancellation Email”). The subject line of your email must state, “Pause/Cancel Subscription”. In the body of the email, please provide whether you wish to pause or cancel your subscription. Your email must be sent from the email address used to setup your account.
The Cancellation Email must be received and confirmed as completed by a representative of The Empowered Vegan before seven (7) days prior to your next billing date.

At the time of cancellation, we will complete any remaining deliveries that have already been purchased and apply the cancellation or suspension going forward. In the event of an overcharge or billing error on our part, we will review your matter and apply a refund. In other extraordinary circumstances, we may (but have no obligation to) grant a refund. On doing so, we may charge a five percent (5%) processing fee against the refund amount. For questions related to billing, cancellations or refunds, please contact us at email@example.com.
