The purpose of the Service is to provide you with (1) meal kits which include ingredients and instructions to prepare a variety of recipes, which may change from week to week as per your weekly subscription plan or your preferred selection; (2) ready-to-eat meals you may have selected, which selection may vary from week to week; and/or (3) grocery products you may have selected, which selection may vary from week to week (and which can be ordered with or without a monthly subscription plan). Please read all of the following terms and conditions carefully before using the Service.
By accessing the Website, using the Service or selecting “I Agree” upon creating your Goodfood Account (as defined below), you agree to all the terms and conditions stated in the Agreement. If, at any time, you do not or cannot agree to the terms of the Agreement, you must cease using the Service by cancelling your subscription (or modify your ordering plan or preference) in the manner described herein. You also agree to receive (1) promotional information regarding the Services; and (2) SMS status on the delivery of your orders.
The term “Residents of Québec” refers to residents of the province of Québec who enter into a contract to which the Consumer Protection Act (Québec) applies.

Terms of Sale, Subscription Plans
The Services are offered by way of weekly subscription plans for Meal Delivery Services (“Weekly Subscription Plan”). The various options available are set out below.
You have the ability to build a grocery basket by selecting from a variety of Products and Services. As a result, various fees will apply as described in the table found in the Pricing and Fees section below.
Meal Delivery Service
When you select the Weekly Subscription Plan, you agree that Goodfood (or a third party payment processor authorized by Goodfood) is authorized to charge your credit card for: (1) a minimum weekly fee (based on your meal selection preference when opening your Goodfood account); and (2) a Frozen Fee (as detailed in the table below), if applicable, and/or (3) a Small Order Fee if you elect to purchase less than $65 on any given week, and/or (4) additional Product or Meal Delivery Service that may be added to your order. You also agree that we are authorized to charge your credit card until such time that your subscription is cancelled by you. Should you wish to “skip” a week or cancel your subscription, you must provide us notice on or before:
◾ Wednesday before midnight – if your delivery is scheduled on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Sunday of the following week;
◾ Saturday before midnight – if your delivery is scheduled on Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the following week,
otherwise you will receive the Meal Delivery Service as scheduled and your credit card will be charged accordingly.
You acknowledge and agree that the amount you will be charged per week may change if you modify your basket selection, benefit from a promotion, special offer or the application of credits, or if there are other changes to prices, applicable taxes or other fees to be added based on your selection.
Please note that if you modify your Weekly Subscription Plan type, any upcoming weeks you have previously skipped will be automatically unskipped.
You also acknowledge that you may be charged Frozen Fees of $4.99 for frozen items ordered (if the total value of the frozen items purchased is less than $45/order). This fee is automatically waived if the total value of the frozen items purchased exceeds $45/order.
You also acknowledge that you may be charged a Small Order Fee of $9.99 if the items you select in any given week total $64.99 or less. This fee is automatically waived if the total value of the basket is equal to or greater than $65.
Pricing & Fees
All prices shown are in Canadian dollars. Prices are inclusive of all applicable taxes (including Federal and Provincial goods and services, sales or other taxes on consumption or services).
Sales taxes, where applicable, are included in the price of Products purchased and/or applicable Delivery or Frozen Fees, based on your Plan and your province of residence. The final amount charged to you (inclusive of all taxes) will be detailed at the checkout page of your order.
The total price of your order, at checkout, may include GST/HST, where applicable, at the rate applicable when placing your order and based on your province of residence.
We accept no liability to complete any transaction which cannot be cleared by our payment processor, including but not limited to insufficient credit limit on your credit card. If such a situation should occur, you will receive an error message and the transaction will be denied and cancelled. In addition, we may suspend your Goodfood Account and/or contact you for an alternate valid credit card. Any suspension does not relieve you from your obligation to pay any fees owed to us.
Please consult your Goodfood Account and details provided in your order at final checkout page of your order for more information on the pricing, for each order.

If you are dissatisfied with any Product or ingredient you receive in your kits, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within five (5) days of receiving your order. We will provide a Credit (as defined below) to your Goodfood Account for the equivalent value of the Products you are not satisfied with. We may require you either (i) return the item you are dissatisfied with, at your cost, unless otherwise agreed to with Goodfood; (ii) keep the item and/or (iii) provide photographic documentation of the item you are dissatisfied with. You are responsible for inspecting items upon their delivery for any damage or other issues including but not limited to the freshness of the Products you receive. Ingredients should be delivered to you in a cool and refrigerated condition, below 4°C. Although unlikely, if you have any reason to believe that a Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.
We do not currently deliver Products or provide Meal Delivery Services to every region in Canada. You can find out if we ship to your area by signing up and you will be notified once we start shipping to your specified address.
Goodfood generally uses third party services for shipping and therefore all Products purchased are made pursuant to a shipping contract whereby the title to and the risk of loss of such products passes to you upon delivery of the Products to you. Following the delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are at your own risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products.
Shipping times and dates are estimates and actual delivery times may vary due to weather conditions and other factors, some of which may be outside of our control (“Force Majeure”). If there are events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver the Products to you on your scheduled delivery day, we will attempt to deliver your Products the following day. In the event that we remain unable to deliver your Products on the day which follows your originally scheduled delivery day, we will issue you a credit for the purchase price of that order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are responsible for the total value of your order if we are unable to complete the delivery at your confirmed address at the specified day due to reasons caused by you.
We consider the Products delivered when the third-party courier service arrives, and surrenders custody of the Products in accordance with the delivery instructions you have specified in your Goodfood Account. We will presume that any individual present at the location specified in the delivery instructions is authorized to receive the delivery on your behalf. If there is no one present at the address specified in the delivery instructions we will leave the package unattended at the address you have specified. You are responsible for ensuring the completeness of the delivery instructions provided to us.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products received for any damage or other issues upon their delivery to you. You are responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should use a thermometer to confirm that the internal temperature of any meat, poultry, fish, seafood or other perishable ingredients are in cool and refrigerated condition below 4°C. Should the Products not be fresh upon their delivery to you, please let us know and we will handle the matter in accordance with our return policy.
If your order is delivered in boxes, those include insulated liners and iced gel packs that keep your ingredients cool and fresh for up to 24 hours after delivery. However, you are responsible for the Products as of the moment when the courier gives up custody of the Products to you. You are responsible for a Product degradation as a result of any events (including the passage of time) after the delivery of the Products. Please keep in mind the season and temperatures in your area at the time of delivery and plan deliveries and storage accordingly. You are responsible for the Products as of the moment the courier delivers the Products to the address indicated on your order. Please make sure there is someone to attend to the deliveries and store the Product accordingly, upon delivery.
Upon reception and following inspection of any delivered Products, you must immediately refrigerate all perishable items and are responsible for following refrigeration, food safety, safe food handling instructions and food consumption recommendations from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Québec (MAPAQ) (or in Ontario, Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, OMAFRA) & Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to reduce risks of foodborne illnesses including such recommendation for at-risk groups (i.e., pregnant women, young children, elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems). You should use a food thermometer to ensure that all meat, poultry, fish, seafood and other applicable items are cooked at recommended internal temperatures.
We may from time-to-time designate certain locations as “pick-up points” where you can collect the Products. Should you choose to receive your Products at a pick-up point, we will consider the Products delivered when they are made available to you for pick-up at the specified pick-up point. You are responsible for collecting your Products within the timeframe specified in your shipping confirmation.
Please note that Goodfood does not make deliveries on Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years. Any orders placed which, according to the above delivery schedule, would fall on any of those days will be postponed to the next day.
We may occasionally offer new or existing customers a promotional offer in connection with their use or potential use of the Services or the purchase of Products (each a “Special Offer”). The terms of a Special Offer shall be contained or otherwise transmitted therewith and otherwise governed accordingly. From time-to-time, a Special Offer may consist of a promotion for a free meal(s) upon the opening of a Goodfood Account or re-subscribing to a Subscription (a “Free Meal Special Offer”).
Should you take advantage of a Free Meal Special Offer, and such Free Meal Special Offer ends, you acknowledge and agree that we (or our third-party payment processor) will begin billing your designated payment method on a recurring basis for your Weekly Subscription Plan (including any applicable taxes) for as long as your Weekly Subscription Plan continues, unless you cancel your Weekly Subscription Plan prior to the end of the Free Meal Special Offer. Instructions for cancelling your Weekly Subscription Plan are described herein. Please note that you may not receive a notice from us that your Free Meal Special Offer has ended or that the fully paid portion of your Weekly Subscription Plan has begun.
As a result of certain situations, we may issue you credits of a promotional value that will be automatically applied to future purchases made by way of your Goodfood Account or otherwise applied to your Subscription, as applicable (the “Credits”). Credits are promotional in nature, are not transferable, may only be redeemed as instructed by us and are not exchangeable for cash or other property.
Credits only remain available if you maintain an active Goodfood Account. Cancelling your Goodfood Account will result in the cancellation of your Credits. You may only redeem Credits after they are applied to your Goodfood Account. Except for residents in Quebec, any decision made by us regarding a dispute as to your Credit balance is final.
Prepaid cards and gifts cards (collectively, “Prepaid Cards”)
You may acquire Prepaid Cards to be used for the purposes of purchasing any of the Products or Services, only at www.makegoodfood.ca.
You may contact Member Happiness at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to find out the remaining balance on your Prepaid Card.
You are not entitled to any interest on the balances on the Prepaid Card. Prepaid Cards are not reloadable. We are not responsible if your Prepaid Card is lost or stolen. Prepaid Cards are non-refundable and non-cancelable, even if you have lost your Prepaid Card.
Unless otherwise specified, Prepaid Cards will be sent to you via email.
You may cancel your Goodfood Account or any of your subscription plan (weekly or monthly) at any time by contacting our Member Happiness team either via our live chat, by email (email@example.com). Our operating hours are Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM EST or Saturday & Sunday from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM EST. The Company also reserves the right to suspend or end the Service if you in breach of the Agreement, or for any other reasons deemed serious.
