HelloFresh is a fresh meal kit delivery service that offers a convenient and fun way to tackle the job of weekly menu planning and meal preparation. By delivering only exactly what you need in precise quantities, HelloFresh boxes can cut down on your food waste and potentially save you money. The recipes can also introduce you to dishes you have never tasted and help you hone your cooking skills. That said, HelloFresh is a subscription service, which means you aren’t buying single boxes at a time, but rather opting into an ongoing delivery plan.

However, between traveling, changing dietary needs or finances, or simply wanting to try something different when it comes to meal planning and cooking, there are plenty of reasons you might want to cancel or change your HelloFresh subscription. But, can you skip a delivery or cancel or change your HelloFresh subscription? If so, how do you cancel HelloFresh subscriptions? Keep reading to find out.

HelloFresh Subscription Plans

HelloFresh is a subscription service that auto-renews each week unless you pause, change, or cancel your plan on your customer account page. There is no membership fee to start receiving boxes and when you sign up, you can select from one of several meal plans, each of which can be purchased in a two- or four-person serving size and in quantities of two, three, four, five, or six different meals per week. The meal plans offered by HelloFresh include the following:

  • Classic Meat & Veggie: A standard omnivore diet with recipes featuring meat, poultry, fish, and fresh vegetables from a variety of cuisines.
  • Veggie: Recipes feature vegetables and are meat-free.
  • Family Friendly: Recipes that are specifically tailored to appeal to young palates.
  • Pescatarian: While these recipes do not contain meat or poultry, they do use fish and seafood.
  • Calorie Smart: This plan includes dietitian-approved recipes that are all under 650 calories per serving.
  • Quick and Easy: For those short on time, these recipes can typically be made in under 20 minutes.

How to Change Your HelloFresh Subscription

Customers are never locked into their HelloFresh meal plan. At any point, you can log into your customer account page and change the number of meals you receive each week, or the number of servings per recipe, and/or the type of recipes you receive. For example, you may start with two servings of four different recipes in the Pescatarian plan each week but then decide you want to try two servings of just three Calorie Smart recipes the next week.
