How to Cancel HelloFresh Orders + Top Alternatives for 2021

Maybe it was the lack of meal plans for specialty diets. Or maybe it was the delivery schedule to your area that didn’t work for you. I tried the most popular HelloFresh plan myself but needed to move on to something better.

I go into this in more detail in my HelloFresh review , but while HelloFresh is a useful service, there’s room for improvement. For one, as a meal kit, it could do more to be customizable. Home Chef , for example, lets you switch out one protein for another, and even upgrade your meats to organic.

For another, HelloFresh could do more to cater to stricter dietary needs. Sunbasket champions this with 10 different dedicated meal plans. Catering to different diets is a tall order to fill, and Sunbasket does it perfectly.

Of course, everyone’s budget is different, and HelloFresh does take a fair approach to price. But for those who don’t have specific dietary requirements, EveryPlate does a lot to provide quality ingredients for one of the cheapest prices on the market.

Back to canceling HelloFresh. On the website, log into your account, open the menu in the top right corner and choose “Settings.” Then scroll down to the "Account" section. You’ll see the status of your plan, and an option to cancel.

HelloFresh will then suggest ways it can make your plan work better for you:

Next, you’ll have to select the reason you’re canceling your plan:

Click “Continue” and you’re done!


Note: if this is not done by 11:59 pm PST five days before your last delivery, then you’ll get one more box that you’ve already paid for.

So You Canceled Your Subscription – What Now?

HelloFresh has a good assortment of delicious recipes, most of which are easy to cook and definitely worth trying out. If you decide it’s not for you (perhaps you want something with more specific instructions), there are great alternatives out there.

Here are three meal delivery services that give HelloFresh a run for its money:

Best HelloFresh Alternatives

1. Home Chef – Best for Customization


As someone who likes variety, I love that Home Chef covers many different types of customizable meal kits. 

I personally tried the most popular Home Chef plan and wrote about it in this in-depth Home Chef review

Not only can you get your typical half-hour meal kits with a bunch of different recipes, but you can also get oven-ready meals for those hectic nights, and grill-ready meals for something different. Talk about making dinner time exciting again! 

You can customize your menu by selecting the ingredients you don’t want, and you can easily swap proteins, or upgrade meat for an organic option.


2. Sunbasket – Most Dieting Options Available  


 

Meal kits or prepared meals? Ever wish you could just get a mix of both? 

Then Sunbasket is the way to go. From the Fresh & Ready meals to the classic half-hour meal kits, you can get your fix of grab-and-go meals for a healthy lunch at the office and enjoy time in the kitchen for dinnertime. 

I write all about my experiences with this meal delivery service in this dedicated Sunbasket review .

Sunbasket also provides 10 dedicated meal plans, from Mediterranean to paleo. This is the perfect way to try out a new diet without any of the stress of recipe-searching and shopping. All ingredients are organic, responsibly sourced, free-range, and of great quality.

3. EveryPlate – Big Taste for the Lowest Price

EveryPlate provides meal kits for all the classic recipes – and one of the most affordable prices on the market. At just $4.99 a plate, plus shipping, EveryPlate makes delicious, home-cooked dinners accessible to almost everyone. 

You can learn more about how EveryPlate works in this detailed EveryPlate review

While there are some dairy-free and veggie choices, the bulk of EveryPlate’s menu is meat- and poultry-centered dishes. If you’re not trying to adhere to a stricter diet, then this is a great, affordable option.


Bottom Line

Canceling your HelloFresh account is as easy as setting one up, although the company really, really doesn’t want you to go. 

If you decide another meal prep delivery service is a better option for you, there are some awesome companies out there that will quickly fill the hole in your fridge – and your stomach!
