Hungryroot makes it really easy to pause your future orders in the account settings, without having to call customer support. That’s even the case if you purchased your meal box using Hungryroot’s special discount.
Hungryroot is a great source of ready-made ingredients for quick and healthy dinners, but it’s not for everybody.
Some find Hungryroot’s simple recipes and precooked ingredients offer no cooking challenge, while others prefer fully prepared meals they simply heat and eat.
Those looking for a more traditional meal delivery service with a broader variety of family-friendly offerings might prefer Home Chef, a meal delivery service that always scores highly in our rankings.
Whatever your reasons, canceling your Hungryroot subscription is easy. All you have to do is follow my illustrated, step-by-step instructions and you’re free.
Log in. Sign in to your account on the Hungryroot website or iOS app.
Select and confirm Cancel Your Account by answering several screens.
Wait for the email confirmation that will arrive within a few minutes.
Hungryroot lets you cancel your subscription online. There’s no need to make a phone call and no extended commitment.
To avoid an extra delivery, you must cancel your Hungryroot subscription by the Monday or Thursday before your order ships. Check your My Hungyroot for the day on which your order finalizes.
To cancel your Hungryroot subscription, you simply:
Sign in to your My Hungryroot account on your app or browser.
If you’re using the app, click Profile at the bottom of the screen, then Settings.
If you’re using a desktop or mobile browser, click Settings at the top right corner of your screen.
From Settings, scroll down until you see Account Details, then click to expand. Among the options is Cancel Account.
When you click on that account you get a window asking if you want to cancel or just take a break. Hungryroot then gives you an option to pause deliveries for four, six, or eight weeks. If you decide to take a break, Hungryroot will send you an email reminder a week before your deliveries start up again.
If you have decided you want to cancel your subscription, select Continue to Cancel. You might think this is the end, but there are still two more steps.
Before canceling your subscription, Hungryroot asks why you’re canceling, and then asks for further clarification on your first answer. Some may find this annoying, and I must admit that I prefer clean breaks without a lot of questions. But you can answer with a couple of clicks, and nobody is grading you on this test so you can choose whatever answers you like.
Now you’re at the finish line, but before you go Hungryroot wants to make absolutely sure you don’t just want to skip a couple of deliveries or change your address. You can provide more information about your cancellation here, or you can simply press the Continue to Cancel button for the third time.
Within a few minutes of submitting your cancellation request, you should receive a confirmation email from Hungryroot. If you decide to come back, you simply log in to your account and click Resume Deliveries.
Home Chef scores highly on all our lists because it does so many things so well. You can make gourmet meals from the Culinary Collection, or rely on a 15-Minute Meal Kit or Oven-Ready meal for busy nights. Our Home Chef reviewer called it “one of the most versatile meal delivery services out there.”
Home Chef’s secret weapon is its Customize It feature. You can make your Parisian Bistro Chicken with salmon, pork chops, or New York strip steak, or replace the ground beef in many hamburger recipes with vegetarian Impossible Burger.
You might expect this flexibility comes with a premium cost, but Home Chef’s starting price of $6.99 per serving is comparable to Hungryroot prices. And if Home Chef isn’t what you’re looking for, you can cancel your Home Chef subscription in three easy steps.
Every week Freshly offers over 50 fully prepared meals for fast healthy eating. All meals are chef-crafted and made with less sugar and fewer processed ingredients than other freezer meals, and all Freshly meals are certified gluten-free.
Freshly’s Purely Plant menu provides you with delicious vegan meals like Hungryroot, but with even less preparation time! Slip a Freshly meal in the microwave and in 3-5 minutes you have a hot, delicious meal. Freshly also offers low-calorie, low-carb, and dairy-free meal options.
Hungryroot offers many choices, but the recipes and ingredients stay the same with minor seasonal changes. Freshly’s menu changes weekly, so you’ll never get bored. And if you want convenience, it doesn’t get any more convenient than fully prepared meals.
If your fussy eaters turn their noses up at Hungryroot’s more sophisticated selections, you may want to check out EveryPlate’s selection of hearty comfort foods. Every week EveryPlate offers 17 different choices, including kid-approved FamilyPlate recipes.
At just $4.99 per serving, EveryPlate is one of the most inexpensive meal delivery services on the market. Options include EasyPlate meals ready in 30 minutes or less and a vegetarian VeggiePlate menu (though vegans, alas, are out of luck).
EveryPlate has few offerings for people on specialized diets. But if you want tasty, filling meals at a great price, EveryPlate may be just what you’re looking for.
Canceling your Hungryroot subscription is easy so long as you don’t mind answering two multiple-choice questions. If that’s the hardest thing I do all day, I count myself lucky!
If Hungryroot didn’t work out, there are lots of other choices on the market that may be a better fit. There are many delicious and affordable meal delivery services on the market targeted to many dietary needs. You may need to try a couple of services before you find the one that’s perfect for you.
