FAQS ABOUT OUR MEALS
DO I NEED TO PREPARE OR COOK THE MEALS?
No, we have already done the cooking and preparation for you. The meals are all pre-cooked and require little or no prep – yes no-prep! Just heat and serve. The meals are designed to be on your table in minutes so you can relax and enjoy spending time using our Activity Cards Around The Table.
ARE THE MEALS FRESH?
Yes! Around The Table meals arrive fresh not frozen, with each individual component sealed separately to ensure it remains fresh.
CAN I CHOOSE THE MEALS I WANT?
Yes! All Around The Table meals are family favourites, so you can choose every week or each time you order, which of our 15 meals you would like for your family.
I HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION, WILL I GET THE SAME MEALS EACH WEEK?
Only if you want to. Each week you will receive an email asking if you would like to change your choices. If you do not make any changes, we will assume you are happy with the meals you chose the week prior and deliver you the same items (so you don't miss out).
HOW LARGE ARE THE MEALS?
Our meals are designed for a family of 2 adults and 2-3 children.
As every family is unique we provide the opportunity to purchase additional sides that we have grouped for convenience so that larger families can enjoy Around The Table too. The sides are conveniently grouped (Veggie Boost, Substantial Sides and Mixed Sides) so you can order them just like ordering a meal. They are also very handy to have in your freezer for those "just in case moments".
OUR FAMILY IS LARGER THAN 5, HOW DO I ORDER?
Whilst our main meals cater for a family of 4-5 people, you can purchase additional sides to enable larger families to enjoy Around The Table too. Additional sides such as: vegetarian fried rice, steamed greens, baked vegetables, green peas, creamy mash and garlic bread have been grouped into themes so you can order them just like ordering a meal. They are called Veggie Boost (6 extra sides that are all fresh veggies), Substantial Sides (5 extra sides that are all tummy fillers), Mixed Sides (A mixture of 5 sides from across our range). The weight of all the sides are indicated when you order.
