We cannot make modifications to our meals. Please look for the easy identifiers with each meal to see if we have something that fits your lifestyle. We provide identifiers for gluten free (GF), vegan (V), vegetarian (VEG), nut free (NF), and dairy free (DF). We also list the nutrition and ingredients on the description page of every meal. If you have a concern, please reach out to customer support, we’d love to chat with you.

I don’t like inputting my card information into apps or websites. Can I call you to place an order?

keyboard_arrow_down

While we would love to do this for you, we cannot accept orders over the phone or email. Our agents do not have the ability to charge cards, make changes to the cards on your account, or to add or remove payment methods. We use a third-party processor to keep your information safe.

Monday through Friday, we deliver lunch pre-orders from 11am to 2pm and dinner from 4pm to 9pm. On Sunday, we deliver dinner pre-orders from 4-9pm.

Where do you deliver to?

keyboard_arrow_down

We generally serve the greater Chicagoland area, including the northern and western Suburbs.

What is curbside delivery?

keyboard_arrow_down

Our drivers work very hard to zoom between deliveries. For some parts of Chicago, parking is a nightmare. In order to keep our drivers fast and deliveries smooth, we ask that addresses marked with ‘curbside delivery’ meet their driver at the curb for pick up. This will prevent your order from being delayed due to parking issues, as well as keep our drivers safe! Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions to curbside pick up.

Your drivers are awesome! How can I tip?

keyboard_arrow_down

We are so happy you think so. Our service defaults to a $3 tip. You can see this amount in the cost breakdown section of the check out screen. If you’d like to adjust that amount, please click on the gratuity amount before placing the order. A screen will come up so you can adjust this. Our drivers will also accept cash tips. We cannot modify the tip after the order has been placed.

I hear you have a referral program! How can I take advantage of that?

keyboard_arrow_down

We would love it if you told your friends about us. Who doesn’t love sharing good food? Every account comes with a referral code. When your friends sign up, have them enter your referral code before ordering. When they do, they will receive a free meal coupon. Once they place their first order, you will receive one too! Please note that referral credit does expire in 30 days, so please use it up! We do ask that you do not create multiple accounts to redeem the coupon yourself. We will ban any accounts, and addresses found doing this. That would be a bummer for you and for us.

How can I get my first meal free?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you have not been referred by another user, please check your email after signing up with us. We will email you a little gift of appreciation.

What other sort of discounts do you offer?

keyboard_arrow_down

We love our customers and try to run promotions as often as possible. Remember to stay subscribed to our marketing emails and social media to find out about these fun opportunities. We do offer discounts when you place a multi-day order and for corporate accounts! If you think your business could benefit from partnering with Eat Purely to provide healthy lunches to employees, reach out to us. We’d love to set something up.
