This is a ONE time deposit. We'll deliver your meals in our insulated bag with an ice pack. Just leave the empty bag and ice pack on your porch the next time you order and we'll swap it out with your new order. You don't need to keep the icepack frozen. We hate wasted packaging so don't throw the icepack away. If you want your deposit back just bring the bag and ice pack back and we'll refund your deposit. And remember you only need to pay the bag deposit ONCE.
