Do I have to cook the food in the meal plans?

Your food is freshly prepared, specially-packaged, and ready-to-eat. Once you receive your order, please refrigerate everything immediately and enjoy by the end of the duration of your plan.

 

Why do I have to order in advance?

48-72 hours advanced notice for orders allows time to finalize your menu and work directly with you. Next, we work with our restaurant partners on your final order and make arrangements for when your catering or meal plan can be picked up or delivered. All of our partners make food that is fresh for your order - time is needed to plan and prepare. Once you try Theory Foods and find out if it works for you, a subscription option is available for catering rotations, personal meal plans, and cleanses so that you don't have to skip days without this service. Subscription options are available by emailing orders@theoryfoods.com


Payment + delivery

We accept all major credit cards. All orders are final sale once placed. Deliveries are arranged for all meal plans and cleanses. Deliveries or pick-ups may be arranged for catering orders. Delivery areas currently include San Francisco proper. All downtown deliveries must have building parking access (freight entry) that allows access to park. This can usually be easily arranged with building services and security, and will need to be confirmed in advance of the delivery. Minimum orders are required, and set delivery fees apply. 

Your order is delivered right from the restaurants that we work with to you. Please refrigerate your meal plan or cleanse order immediately upon receiving. 

 

Modifying orders

Orders cannot be modified after they are confirmed. Delivery addresses may be modified 48 hours prior to the next delivery date and time.

This program works for those who'd like to order one time here and there, or have a recurring order. We can easily arrange for recurring orders, and can provide different menu suggestions for variety. 
 

Couples + roommates + children

Meal plans are made per person, yet we can easily accommodate more people living in the same household. Each person will simply need to have their own separate orders created.
 

Your diet

Theory Foods is an ideal meal plan program for those who want to explore what foods help them feel good and energized, or know how they'd like to eat, have high standards, want the taste and quality of chef-prepared food, and want to save time. We each thrive on different kinds of foods. We want to help you eat well with quality food made by top local purveyors. 
 

Dietary theories

There are hundreds of dietary theories. If you really think about it, there is a dietary theory for each of us as we each have our own unique way that we like to eat. Some foods work better for us than others. We appreciate that and are here to support you however possible. One thing will always be a constant: you'll receive good, nutritious, nourishing food from some of the best restaurants and food purveyors in San Francisco.
