Returning boxes and eskies

One of the most important things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint is flat-pack and return used boxes, ice bottles and eskies to your Food Host or where your home delivery is dropped. Your driver will pick them up on your next delivery day.

Food Host collection

Forgot to pick up or running late?

If you are unable to pick up your order please contact your Food Host ASAP to make alternative arrangements. Please note that this is up to the Food Host’s discretion. You can find their contact details in your Profile.

What to expect at pick-up

The boxes and communal esky will be stacked in a sheltered spot.  Your box or boxes will have your name on it. If your order is not at your Food Host please don’t take someone else’s just contact us and we will deliver a fresh order to your home the next day or provide a full refund. Read more about our Service Guarantee here.

The communal esky

Refrigerated items are packed into a communal esky. Please only take what is yours, according to the check list on the esky.

Missing esky item

If you ordered an item and it isn’t in the communal esky please call us (don’t take someone else’s).  Contact us and we’ll do our utmost to get you what you ordered, or provide a refund. Read more about our Service Guarantee here.

Esky Etiquette

Please do not remove the communal esky or ice bottles from your Food Host and secure the lid after you’ve got your items.
