Currently, our Services are only available to the Victoria Capital Regional District, Mill Bay, and Cobble Hill, British Columbia, Canada, residents.

Local Urban Bites’ Meal Plans
We offer a series of weekly subscription plans that will enable you to receive 1 delivery every week (currently Sunday delivery each week, with the exception of major holidays, where Local Urban Bites may opt to deliver on a Monday or Tuesday). You have the option to pause or skip any delivery prior to the Wednesday night 11:59 PM cut off time.
If you purchase a Local Urban Bites plan, you will be charged for the full amount, including any applicable taxes and delivery charges at checkout. This will be followed by the same amount originally billed to you, unless otherwise paused or skipped. By choosing to sign up for a subscription plan with us, you agree and acknowledge that the amounts we bill each week may vary in cases where differing amounts occur due to promotional offers or other modifications that may be necessary from time to time. To terminate your authorization of these charges or to change your payment method, log into your subscription account by visiting localurbanbites.com and going to the ‘Manage Subscriptions’ section at the bottom of the home page. Alternatively, you may email us at email@example.com for guidance/direction on how to properly make changes to your account.

Product Quality and Availability
Offering our customers the very best ingredients is of paramount importance to us at Local Urban Bites. We choose our suppliers carefully to assure you receive a high quality product, each and every time. It is our intention to fully fulfill each order; however, given the perishable nature of our products, we may be required to substitute certain ingredients based on market conditions/availability or ingredient quality that is deemed to be below our standards. If you’re not happy with the replaced ingredient, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local Urban Bites uses insulated packaging to maintain the quality and integrity of your products. We recommend that you properly stow all perishable items immediately after receiving your delivery. We guarantee that your products will remain fresh in their delivery bag at room temperature (21.5 degrees Celsius) for three (3) hours from the time of delivery. If you believe anything you’ve received from us is not fresh or if your bag is not fully up to your standards, notify us by midnight on the day of delivery by email at email@example.com and we’ll provide you with a credit that you can use towards a future order.
Please note that we reserve the right to limit the quantity of a particular type of meal that you may order from us as part of your meal selections (for instance, reducing the number of times you select the same steak dish on the menu for a given week).
Calorie information is provided on a per serving basis and is based on a best assessment situation. We include only material calculations when calculating the number of calories in each serving (for instance, we will not use the teaspoon of cayenne as part of our calorie calculation). Due to the varying sizes and weights of your produce and proteins, it is impossible to calculate the exact calories that go into each serving. It is for this reason that we use an average approach when determining the amount of calories that go into each of your servings. As well, all our ingredients may be added or removed or adjusted at your discretion. Some individuals may also use different amounts of pantry items such as oils, salt & pepper, etc. Some calculations may also depend on the final preparation times of each dish. Calorie information is provided as a guide and we do not guarantee the accuracy of any such information.
To receive your delivery, you must live in a residential dwelling, or have received permission from your employer to receive shipments from Local Urban Bites. Anyone at the delivery address provided on the order page is presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. If you, your doorman/concierge, and your alternate receiver are not present to receive your delivery, we will use reasonable methods and efforts to contact you. If you are unreachable, we will leave your delivery at the indicated address. If you arrange to have your package delivered at another time, other than the Sunday delivery date, redelivery fees may apply should a second visit apply.
Delivery is available on non-holiday Sundays; check the product details page for exact delivery dates. You may cancel orders via the "Manage Subscriptions" section of the Site. Modified orders are subject to price changes and a change of a delivery date may not guarantee the availability of your desired items. Cancellation of orders after the required cut-off time will still be charged the full price.
Orders must be received before the posted cut off time for a given delivery. Available delivery windows and associated delivery charges and promotions will be shown as you proceed through the ordering process. You can place your order anytime, up to: the Wednesday at 11:59 PM Pacific Time before a Sunday delivery. Orders must be canceled by Wednesday at 11:59 PM Pacific Time for Sunday delivery. Cancellation of orders after the required cut off time will result in a full charge.
If you are using our subscription feature, your order will be processed before the deadline. However, if you decide to make a change to the pre-selected meal options we’ve made for you, you must do so prior to Wednesday at midnight. Any changes must take place by either replying to the Tuesday morning email that confirms your pre-selected options or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the case of inclement weather or unforeseen delivery complications, it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule, which will cause us to suspend chosen delivery dates and times. If there will be a significant delay, a customer experience team member may call or e-mail you to let you know the status of your delivery time. We will deliver your order as quickly as possible when the conditions permit. If your designated delivery location (i.e., street, avenue) or day is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact you to determine the best alternate location and/or date.
If something is missing from your order, please call our Customer Service Team at either 250-508-6614 or 250-686-5972, or email us at email@example.com.
Risk and Title
All product prices include any applicable taxes and delivery charges. Product prices and delivery charges are subject to change at any time; however, in the cases where an order charge has already gone through and a confirmation email has been sent, these changes will not affect that week’s pricing.
You may change your method of payment at any time by updating your account information. If a payment is not processed correctly due to an invalid expiration, insufficient funds, or other errors associated with payment processing, and you do not edit your information or cancel your account, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to charge your selected method once it has been updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates, that may be modified by you at any time.
If you register for our subscription service, your subscription will automatically renew until you cancel it, and you are enrolled to receive shipments each week, once every two weeks, or once every three weeks. You may turn on/off a specific delivery (within order cut off times) at any time per the cancellation details listed below. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, and you agree to be personally liable for all charges incurred under your account. Your liability for such charges shall continue after termination of this Agreement. Skipping your Deliveries and/or order cancellation requests require advanced notice to Local Urban Bites prior to the Wednesday midnight order cut off. If you miss these deadlines, you will be responsible for paying the applicable amount, and the cancellation will take effect the following week.
