Mattie Childs says:

I do not like pumpkin or pork chicken and fish is what I really like I do not like chili I do not like being soup and all that that is one of the reason I cancelled for this week that’s in that being whatever I do not like that thank you

Allison Borg says:

I have to say I’m a bit disappointed. My kids and I read this book together and are really looking forward to the movie. We get the family box every week, so when I received an email about the Wonder postcard and possible movie tickets, they were so excited! However, when we opened our box today, there was nothing. No postcard, no movie tickets, just our usual family box and recipe cards. They were so bummed.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Allison! This is Jordan from our community team at HelloFresh. We’re so sorry about the mixup. If you can email my team at, we’ll mail you out a postcard, so that you can fill it out with your kids. Just be sure to include your shipping address!

Anna says:

Pork?! No way, not our family’s fav!

Crystal Rogers says:

Will you be coming out with a low carb low fat menu? Need to loose weight and lower cholesterol and would be so much easier if the meals were created for me.

Schraeder House says:

Our entire family listed NO PORK on their boxes. We were surprised that so many meals were pork on our choices offered. We still would like the option of choosing a veggie meal or two. Hmmm, maybe we’ll check out some other food box delivery offerings..

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi there– Jordan here, from our community team. You’ll need to select “pork-free” in your account settings or make meal choice each week to ensure you don’t receive pork. We’ll pass your feedback along regarding the veggie options.

I still love family plan

Dawn tupper says:

Do you get to choose the recipes for the family plan like you can in the classic plan?

Jacqueline Parisi says:

YES! There’s now 5 quick and easy, nutritious, and delicious Family Plan meals to choose from every week. You can check out the menu here.

AKY says:

Wish family plan allowed for 6 serving meal; as kids grow and for families greater than 4, the amount of food is not enough in the four family plan; but appreciate the increased choices now on the menu each week.

Pam Brown says:

I am in my second week and love the program. My only ‘wish’ would be a meal plan for three. I am a working single mom that has a long to-do list and growing kids (9 and 11). The Family plan is too much food, but I’m afraid The Classic plan may require me to add to the recipes.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Pam – we totally understand! As a suggestion – try getting the Family Plan and saving leftovers for your lunch the next day 🙂

TAE says:

Is there an option to add 2 additional servings to the family plan = 6? Or combine a family plan and 2 person plan under 1 profile?

Jordan Schultz says:

Not at the moment, but that’s a great suggestion! We’ll pass that along.

MIchael says:

I also agree about a 5 or 6 person plan. I am looking at HelloFresh and a competitor and I have to go with them because my family has 5 and 4 will not be enough food. When this changes I will check you out!

Jordan Schultz says:

Thank you for the feedback, Michael! This is helpful for us to improve our product.

Tiffany S says:

I haven’t tried this yet, but we have a gluten and dairy allergy within our family. Are there options to fit this need?

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Hi Tiffany! HelloFresh has a variety of meal choices each week, some of which are gluten-free or dairy-free. When recipes are free of these allergens, they are labeled as such. We leave it to our customers to review the recipes each week and determine which ones best meet their dietary needs. But of course, our Registered Dietitians are always here to help!

Jessica says:

Sad I can’t try Hello Fresh with my family of 5:( I would get it if they offered dinner for 6.

Jordan Schultz says:

Sorry about that, Jessica! One option is to order a 4-person and a 2-person subscription running concurrently.

Warren says:

I did the quiz to see if classic or family plan was better. At the end, a veggie plan showed up. Is this the result of my quiz?

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Warren – yep! Based off how you answered the questions, we recommend the Veggie Plan for you. But this is just a suggestion! Feel free to choose whichever plan fits your lifestyle/diet best.

Danielle says:

Really wish they had options for bigger families. We have a family of 5 (growing kids) and would love to have the option for 5 or even 6 servings without having to add a whole new subscription.

Jordan Schultz says:

Thanks for that feedback, Danielle! We’ll pass it along to the culinary team.

Amanda Minton says:

Hi! I would really like to try you guys, but as a family of 5 I will have to wait till you get bigger serving meals.

Kristin Clark says:

It’s a bummer that you only offer up to 4 servings. I have a family of 5. Because you don’t have options for us and many families who have more than 2 kids, we’ll continue to pass on Hello Fresh.

Thank you for the feedback, Kristin. We’ll get this passed along to our team for consideration!

Shannon says:

Hi. Are your meals smaller in the Family Plan compared to the Classic Plan? Can you feed 4 adults with the Family Plan or are the meal sizes designed to cater for younger children?

Thanks for asking, Shannon. The portion sizes from one plan to another are the same.

Shelly says:

I wish the family plan had the option of up to 5 family members we have 3 kids to feed. Love your food but I’m looking elsewhere to accommodate our family of 5. 🙁

We’ll pass your feedback along to our team, Shelly!

Tracy says:

Do you offer meal plans for a family of five?

Our largest plan currently feeds 4 people, Tracy. You can always create multiple subscriptions to receive more than one box per week, though!

Karla says:

I noticed someone had asked about portion sizes between plans and that they’re all the same. If this is the case, I was wondering why family plan is so much cheaper than classic if you get the same amount of food

Received my first box. Love it love it. I cooked Parmesan-crusted tilapia. Looked just like the picture. It’s nice not to have to plan all my meals.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

YAY, Nancy! So happy to hear that. We’ve got some amazing recipes on the menu for the next few weeks, so stay tuned 🙂

Karen Neihart says:

We received a Gift Card for Hello Fresh for Christmas from my granddaughter. She tried to help us pick out some meals. We need to have gluten free meals and we weren’t sure which ones were gluten free. We also did not find the site to be very user friendly, and as a result we have never used our gift card nor ordered any meals. Could you please provide us with a list of which meals are gluten free? Thank you.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Karen! We try to include one or two Gluten Free meals in each week’s menu. You must select from the specific week’s menu when you order your box. You can always view our upcoming choices here without a box:

You’ll need to check out with a classic or family box before you can actually make meal choice, but if you already have an open subscription follow these steps to choose your meals:

-Sign on to and log in to your account, by clicking on “Login” in the top right corner.
-Click on “My Account” in the top right corner
-Click on “Your Meals” in the left-side menu
-If you like the 3, 4, or 5 highlighted meals (chef’s choice), nothing more needs to be done. If you’d like to change a meal for one of the others, deselect that option and then select whichever you’d like to replace it with.
-Don’t forget to click “Save”, after which you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

Meal choice can be made until 11:59pm EST, five days prior to delivery. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
