HelloFresh Thanksgiving Box: How It Works

Ordering your HelloFresh Thanksgiving box is easy! Go to the “seasonal” page on the HelloFresh site. Select your menu and then choose your delivery date.  This can be up to two weeks before Thanksgiving or the week of Thanksgiving.

If you are ordering the Turkey dinner please note that the turkey will need 4 days to thaw so select a delivery date 5 days before you need it.  The last day to order for Thanksgiving delivery with thaw time is November 19th, 2020.

You can order multiple boxes, ship them to your home, work or a family member’s home, and you can even send a box as a gift.


*Important:  In order to completely thaw the turkey, be sure to get your box delivered at least 4 days before you want to cook your meal.
