Managing My Account
Does my subscription auto-renew?
Your subscription will automatically auto-renew each week. You can adjust your subscription by visiting the “Account” page on our website.
How do the weekly plans work?
Each subscription is based on a weekly subscription, with meals being delivered once per week, typically on Mondays (Sunday or Tuesday depending on your delivery area). Once you begin your subscription, you will receive an email to choose your preferred meals from the available meal schedule. The day before your delivery date, a representative from MANNA will reach out to you to coordinate your delivery details, and approximate delivery time window.
Can I choose and pick my meals?
The majority of our subscription clients prefer eating our “Chef’s Selection” meals, which is an automatic meal schedule created by our Head Chef. Each week you can go to the "account" section of our website to choose your meals for the upcoming week. You will also be reminded by email and text to choose your meal incase you may have missed doing it. If for some reason you are unable or forget to choose a custom meal selection, do not worry, you will automatically receive the “Chef’s Selection” meal. The meal selection cut off period is each week on Thursday at 11:59pm for the second following Monday.
How do I skip or pause a week or month?
You can pause your account for a month by going to the “Account” section on our webpage, then press the "Manage My Subscription". From this page you pause or skip individual weeks if you are going to be away. Note, that if you cancel your subscription, then you will loose any preferred pricing levels or discounts attached to your account. When pausing or skipping weeks it is important to note that the date shown is the date that the order is issued to the kitchen, and the actually delivery date will be the following Monday.
When will my subscription start?
If you have signed up for our service it will start on the Monday after nine days after you completed your purchase online. Once you sign up, please go to the "account" tab on our website, there you will see a blue button under "My Account" heading on the top left of the screen. The blue button will say "Select meals for >date<". This will indicate the date your first meals will arrive. If you have any questions, or require more information please join us for a live chat with our website site team (blue chat button on the lower right-side of screen) or email us at email@example.com .
Save up to 20% off with a Subscription
The benefit of have a subscription is there are considerable price savings over regular pricing. Depending on when you sign up for a weekly meal package you can save anywhere between 10% to 20% off the regular list meal price. You will get that price saving on every future meal order (as long as your subscription is active). MANNA is really set up to serve as a repeatable weekly service, and in that, both you and MANNA win. You win with a price savings (plus great, easy to make plant-based meals) and we also win in operational cost savings since we have a more predictable weekly ingredient ordering visibility (no overages + no waste). We also save on the cost of packaging pick up as we are able to pick up used packaging materials when we are dropping off.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
Yes, you can pause, skip a week or cancel your subscription at any time without any penalties or breach of contract (simply because there is no contract). However, if you pause or skip weeks, you must place one meal every 45 days to keep your subscription active. By keeping your subscription active you will be able to keep all your set pricing levels & discounts. If a meal order is not placed within 45 days, your subscription will automatically be cancelled and you will be subject to receiving the current pricing & subscription discount available at the next time of your order. PRO TIP: you can grandfather your favourable pricing, subscription discount and delivery fees simply by keeping your subscription active.
