Some of your information on pre workout is incorrect. Eating before exercise in the morning is not critical, and for some is actually beneficial to their body type/activity level.

Jordan Schultz says:

You say no purchase necessary but to enter you have to buy a box, get someone else to buy a box and buy a holiday box in order to enter. So 3 purchases are required to enter. I don’t understand.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Joan! Please see the official rules for an alternate entry method, which does not require purchase.

We are really pleased with Hello Fresh meals We have not had a single meal that was not good.

So pricing is per serving, or per meal? This would cost what?

Classic Box- 3 Recipes
– For Two People: $69/week

(This would be three complete meals, delivered in ONE box, ONE delivery? And would cost $69?)
Are the servings ample?

Just trying to be sure I can afford, before joining.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Ella! That box contains three recipes for 2 people (for a total of six servings) each week. All of our servings are nutritionally assessed, and our customers tell us that the portions are very filling!

Hellofresh my package came today at 12:45 everything was completely thawed the boxes were wet the bags were wet and the ice was all melted can I get this replaced

Jacqueline Parisi says:

We’re so sorry to hear that, Karen! Definitely not up to our standards. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team at 646-846-FOOD (3663). They’d be happy to sort this out for you.

Jessica says:

Even the dinners that I was sure I’d ruined have still tasted great! HelloFresh has taught me a lot of new skills in the kitchen. Before, the extent of my cooking was boil pasta and add sauce haha!

Jacqueline Parisi says:

That’s what we love to hear, Jessica! So happy you’re a part of the HelloFresh family.

Arvella Franks says:

I have not received an email allowing me to select next week’s menu. The same thing happened last week and when I contacted you about it was told the deadline had passed.

Please be informed I wish to skip receiving meals until I receive the opportunity of choice in menu.

Out-of-The-Box Ideas For Recycling Your HelloFresh Packaging

Lifestyle April 20, 2018

Earth Day is this Sunday, and we’re celebrating in a BIG way here at HelloFresh with out-of-the-box recycling projects to inspire you to put that packaging to good use.

Lisa says:

I am curious as to whether I can use the filling of the frozen bag in with some of my planters to help keep the soil moist and reduce the amount of times I need to water my plants.

SARAH says:

Could the cotton insulation be safely repurposed for sleeping bag filler?

Jordan Schultz says:

Good question– One which we’d have to check with our supplier about.

Michael says:

Why can your bags and cotton insulation simply be sanitized and reused by you? When next weeks shipment comes in, the carrier picks up last weeks box, and you can simply reuse it. This saves on industrial energy use to mfg the carton, the cold packs and the cotton insulation. Though it would mean you would want some kind of simple wash system for the plastic liners in the event that something previously leaked. I haven’t seen any leakage from any of your shipments yet, but I’m sure it’s happened. If the carrier sees signs of damage to last weeks delivery, they can simply leave it and the customer can recycle it as described.

ANNE says:

LOVE this idea! My friend and I were just discussing this very same idea this past werkend!

Jordan Schultz says:

Isn’t it great? What’s your favorite?

David says:

I plan on lining my garage attic with the insulation. I will get back to everyone if I notice a difference 😉

Jordan Schultz says:

Keep us posted! We’re excited to hear the results!

Pip says:

Is the Summer liner recycled cotton filler safe from irritants? It would be great if they could be donated to animal rescue for bedding.

Jamie says:

Can the cotton lineing be used as stuffing for sewing projects? Stuffed animals, blankets, pet beds?

Jordan Schultz says:

We don’t see why not! In fact, it sounds like a great idea. Let us know if you create anything with it.

Sophia says:

Hi there! I love that most of your shipping products are recyclable. I was wondering if you would be able to provide more information on the website in regards to the cotton/plant based insulation used. Is is or isn’t it compostable, and maybe provide links or helpful keywords like “organic composting” to help people find out where they can compost in their neighborhoods. Also have they considered a program where customers could send back “empty” boxes with freezer packs and insulation to be reused?

Monica says:

Just received my first Hello Fresh box, the food looks great but was shocked at how much waste there is in the packaging. Obviously the cardboard and plastic bags are easy enough but the large gel packs and cotton batting are appear to be trash. I would love to see a response to the previous poster, Sophia, who asked about returning these items for re-use. Not sure if I will continue with shipments if there is this much waste in the packaging.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Monica! At the moment, we don’t have any way for you to return your packaging to us. The ice pack is made with a gentle salt-based refrigerant. You can dump this in the trash once melted and recycle the plastic.

Lindy says:

I wonder if the cotton liner can be used as hot mitt insulation or would ?
