How does the program work? Will I get updates about my delivery?

Prior to your first grocery delivery, someone from our team will reach out to ask for delivery instructions and confirm your contact information. We will also confirm the day and approximate time frame that you can expect your groceries each week.

Each week, a delivery driver (Dasher) will pick up your groceries from a nearby food bank or food partner and leave them outside your door through a no-contact delivery. If you provide a cell phone number, you will receive text updates when your Dasher is assigned, when your groceries are picked up and when your groceries are delivered to your home. 

What grocery items will I receive?

We are able to provide a preset variety boxes of food from local food banks and grocery stores. This may include canned meals, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta and other miscellaneous items. Many deliveries also include perishable items like bread, milk or produce. 

What if I have dietary restrictions?

If you have dietary restrictions or allergies, please indicate this on the sign-up form. Someone from our team will reach out to collect more information. While we cannot currently guarantee that our program can meet every dietary restriction, we will do our best to accommodate your needs. 

What should I do if my groceries don’t arrive?

We do our best to ensure every delivery makes it to you safe and sound, and your Dasher does too! Occasionally, however, mistakes happen. If you haven’t received your normal delivery, first see if you can locate it nearby. If you live in an apartment, check your hall, lobby, entry or other common areas, and if you live in a house please check that it was not left at your door, driveway or mailbox.

If you still are unable to locate your food after taking these steps, please let us know right away. Call 253.237.2019 or email our team at as soon as possible, to give us the best opportunity to resolve your issue.

What should I do if I have a concern about my Dasher?

Please contact our team by calling 253.237.2019 or emailing as soon as possible so that we can help resolve your concern.

I want to stop receiving deliveries. How do I opt out?
