Meal accommodations and Substitutions

We are not an allergy free environment but strive to meet your needs. You can indicate up to 3 substitutions for foods you are either allergic to or cannot tolerate. Our kitchen will do their best to accommodate these requests. We also offer an option to have the protein portion of your meal cut or minced. For those with strict dietary restrictions, please call us at (905) 857-7651 we will be happy to assist you in choosing the service that best suits your needs.

Delivery Times

Meals are typically delivered during the lunch hour approximately 11:00am to 1:00pm. We ask that you, or someone in your household, be home to receive the meal. For food safety purposes we are not allowed to leave your meal unattended at your door, in a cooler, or on a table.

Cancellations

We require 24 hours notice for cancellation of a meal service or delivery. If you are unavailable to accept delivery of your meal, please contact our office in advance to make other arrangements. This is to avoid being billed for an unreceived meal.
