We accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, etc.).

We use STRIPE, one of the largest online payment processors in North America, to process all payments. With Stripe, this website stores none of your credit card data. Stripe manages billions of dollars in online payments annually and is our partner of choice to ensure the security of your payment information. Everything is processed by Stripe, using their secure servers. Its fee is the exact same (2.9% +0.30c).

How does your service work?

Just Be Cooking Meal Boxes with Music are monthly Mindful Cultural Meal Boxes delivered to your door! Each box includes pre-portioned raw ingredients you cook or bake in order to create unique cultural dishes at home. Also included are easy-to-follow recipe cards with photos of each cooking step, with chef tips and freezing instructions. Also included are conversation cards from Happy Tears plus a cultural playlist featuring local bands from those countries. The links to our Curated Virtual Playlist (Spotify OR YouTube Music) are e-mailed to you on the same day we deliver your box to your door!

Where do your recipes come from?

Our cultural recipes are put together by our expert team. Drawing on years of culinary experience with diverse backgrounds, our culinary chefs work closely with us to develop a Meal Box with Music experience you'll be happy to re-create again and again. We know palates are diverse, that's why we are constantly creating a variety of mindful cooking with music experiences that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Where do you source your ingredients?

Our suppliers are either local businesses dear to our hearts or Canadian farms, with some international sources. We strive hard to provide only the best quality products. That's why we choose products without additives or preservative, ensuring our sources are eco-responsible and food safe. You can find more details about our suppliers under the 'Our Suppliers' tab in each Meal Box description.

Are your Meal Boxes Eco-Friendly?

Yes! We reduce food waste by portion controlling our ingredients. We also use mesh & paper packaging instead of plastic where possible (ie. vacuum sealed meats are an exception), recyclable dry ice packs as well as Green Cell Foam box insulations which are made from corn.

We offer deliveries every month on a Friday by 5PM. Check each Meal Box for Delivery dates.

What if I live in a Condo/Apartment?
