How to Cancel HelloFresh Easily

I’ve used HelloFresh off and on over the years depending on the needs of our family at the time. While I often can just pause the account, there’s been times when I need to cancel.

Whether you’re going on a vacation, adjusting your budget, or just wanting to experiment with different meal planning and prep approaches, this guide will walk you through the process of managing your HelloFresh subscription effectively.

Note: It’s crucial to cancel or pause your order by 11:59 p.m. PT five days before your next scheduled delivery to avoid any charges.

HelloFresh Subscription Plans

HelloFresh operates on a subscription model that auto-renews weekly. Upon signing up, you can choose from a variety of meal plans, each available in two or four-person serving sizes and quantities of two, three, four, five, or six different meals per week. Here are the meal plans that HelloFresh offers:

  1. Classic Meat and Veggie: An omnivorous diet featuring recipes with meat, poultry, fish, and fresh vegetables from a variety of cuisines.
  2. Veggie:Meat-free recipes focusing on vegetables.
  3. Family Friendly: Recipes tailored to appeal to younger palates.
  4. Pescatarian: Dishes heavy on vegetables, excluding meat or poultry but including fish and seafood.
  5. Calorie Smart: This plan features dietitian-approved recipes, all under 650 calories per serving.
  6. Quick and Easy: Ideal for those short on time, these recipes typically take less than 20 minutes to prepare.

Cancelling a Deceased Loved One’s HelloFresh Subscription

When someone passes away, dealing with their meal kit service subscriptions might not be a priority. However, HelloFresh is one service that requires immediate attention. Otherwise, fresh ingredients might pile up at your loved one’s front door, leading to waste and potential odor issues.

Here are some options for cancelling a deceased loved one’s HelloFresh subscription:

  1. Option 1: Cancel HelloFresh through your loved one’s online account.
  2. Option 2: Reach out to the HelloFresh support staff.

Contacting a HelloFresh staff member from their website’s “Contact Us” page might be the easiest method. You can use online chat or call at (646) 846-FOOD (3663).

Pausing Your HelloFresh Account

If you want to take a break from HelloFresh deliveries without cancelling your subscription, you can pause your account. I find this is often a good option for going on vacation or when our normal routine is off and we won’t have time to prep, cook and eat.

Here’s how:

  1. Step 1: Log into your account.
  2. Step 2: Click on “My Menu.”
  3. Step 3: Select the delivery day you would like to skip.
  4. Step 4: Select “Edit Delivery.”
  5. Step 5: Select “Skip this Week.”

Just because you’ve cancelled your subscription, you may have some additional related questions…

To summarize, HelloFresh offers a flexible subscription model that you can pause, modify, or cancel based on your needs. Just make sure to make any changes five days before your next scheduled delivery to avoid unnecessary charges.
