We could; however, timing the shipment with your excursion might present an issue. But more importantly, the packaging requirements to keep that food cold during transit are excessive. Our goal is to pack your meals with minimal, recycled materials. Plus, who likes their meat sloshing around in the cooler the whole trip?
Breakfast items have their recipes printed on the label. For dinners, we include a recipe card with your shipment. We do recommend keeping the card in a plastic bag in case of adverse weather conditions.
If you purchase our backpacker or overnighter excursion plan, typically you can assume a weight of 1.5 – 2.0 pounds per person, per day for our food. This variance depends on what you order and whether or not you include chicken pouches with your meals (~7 ounces per pouch).
We’re happy to accommodate you! If you’re booking in advance of 10 days, you can add two meal kits to your order (one for eight people, then another for the additional number). We’ll likely need to ship in two boxes, but you’ll still receive your meals in time.
Congratulations! We’re here to make sure that experience goes well. Whether you’re headed car-camping or to the backcountry, we’ll email you a checklist for that excursion and also a checklist, specific to the meals you ordered so you’re all set to go. Feel free to reach out if you have any other sorts of questions, either specific to Fireside or just general camping questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should order now! We allow you to pick a delivery date at checkout, so your food arrives fresh, just ahead of your adventure. The food will not go bad during transit – almost all of our food is shelf-stable, and if not, you’re provided with the freshest ingredients.
If your order is made within 10 days in advance of your trip, we’ll ship your meals for free (on orders $50+) with ground shipping. The meals will be at your house either on or just before the delivery date you select at checkout.
We want you to love our meals as much as we do. Unfortunately if you’re not satisfied with your order we cannot accept returns for food items. We want to make it right though, so please reach out to us at email@example.com.
