What is EveryPlate?

EveryPlate is the only meal kit service that provides delicious, filling, easy-to-make recipes with fresh ingredients at an unbeatable price, right to your doorstep.

What is in my box?

Your box includes all of the fresh ingredients you need to make three delicious recipes, including step-by-step recipe cards, packed neatly and insulated with cool packs to ensure quality.

What days are EveryPlate boxes delivered?

EveryPlate boxes are available for delivery on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, though depending on your address, we may be able to deliver to you on other days too!

How many meals are in the box each week?

EveryPlate offers plans with 3 recipes per week. Each recipe serves either 2 or 4 people, depending on your plan.

Can I choose my meals each week?

Yes. Each week, you can select which meals you would like to receive. Go to your menu page and select ‘Select Meals’. Once you have chosen meals, save your selections, and you're done!

Selections must be made 5 days before your meals arrive at your door.

What kitchen tools will I need?

We encourage EveryPlate customers to have typical kitchen essentials like a pot, pan, baking sheet, knife, and cutting board. Select recipes may also suggest the use of a zester, peeler, potato masher, whisk, strainer, and/or aluminum foil. Be sure to review the recipe steps to make sure you have everything you need to make your recipe.

My Meals and Box

How do I select my meals?

After you log into your account, follow these steps:

  • Select “My Menu” in the navigation bar
  • Select the delivery day for which you would like to choose your meals, and click “Select Meals” to review the available options
  • Choose the three meals you would like, and click “Save”

How are my ingredients packaged in the box?

All the ingredients for all three of your meals are packaged together within an insulated box liner to keep everything fresh.

Ice packs are packed at the bottom of your box to help keep ingredients that must stay cool (like meat) at a cold temparature, while in transit to you.

Is your packaging recyclable?

Yes. Our boxes and separators are 100% curbside recyclable. To recycle other pieces of your box, follow these instructions:

  • Gel ice packs: Use scissors to cut a small corner and empty gel contents into the trash before recycling this #4 plastic pack
  • Box liners: To recycle our jute and cotton liner, please cut top of #4 plastic film, dispose of cotton interior and recycle the film

My Ingredients

How long will my ingredients stay fresh?

We recommend using the fresh ingredients within a week of delivery. Some items do best in the fridge, while others (like herbs) are better at room temperature, so store each item appropriately to ensure freshness.

Where do you source ingredients?

Our suppliers vary by week and region. When we choose our suppliers, our first priority is to get to know them and ensure the highest quality of all ingredients.

What do I do if an ingredient is damaged or missing?

Your delivery may include ingredients that are used across several recipes a week. Check the recipe to ensure that you are using the right amount of an ingredient for the meal.

If an ingredient in your delivery is missing or damaged, please contact our Customer Care team via the Contact Us link on the bottom of this page, and we'll be happy to assist.

Are any ingredients not included in the box?

We encourage EveryPlate customers to keep oil, sugar, butter, salt, and pepper on hand. Everything else you need will be included in your delivery.

Can I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil?

Yes. Vegetable oil is a large category of oil that includes olive oil, canola oil, soybean oil, peanut oil, and many others. When we call for vegetable oil, we are most likely cooking at high temperatures, so feel free to use whichever neutral oil you have on hand. If you only have olive oil, you can use it here, too. When we call specifically for olive oil, we are looking for you to take advantage of its delicate flavor and encourage you to use olive oil specifically.

Do you provide nutritional information for your meals?

Yes. Nutrition and ingredient information can be found on the recipe card that is included within your box, as well as on the recipe detail page on our website.

The nutrition information provided is based on a per serving amount. If you have the Dinner for 2 plan, you multiply this number by 2 to get the total nutritional information for prepared meal. If you have the Dinner for 4 plan, you multiply this number by 4.

Please note that we purchase our ingredients from several different suppliers, so nutritional details per meal may vary slightly.

What do I do if I have an allergy?

EveryPlate offers a variety of recipes that may contain an allergen. Ingredients are stored in EveryPlate facilities and segregated by packaging to protect against cross-contact.

This protection is as rigorous as the handling, storage, and display segregation achieved in typical retail establishments (supermarkets, etc.).

We do not yet offer the option to tailor your plan for specific allergies. EveryPlate reviews and flags every ingredient for any of the major 8 allergens: wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, peanuts, fish, and shellfish.

We suggest that our customers review the ingredients and determine which recipes best meet their dietary needs.
