What is a subscription to Local Baskit and how does it work?

You can swap these meals, skip the upcoming week and cancel at anytime. (See terms and conditions for more details.) You can adjust your weekly selection and delivery option until 10pm EST on the Sunday before your box is to be delivered or picked up.
What is the deadline for making a weekly selection?

Can I skip more than one week in a row?

How much will I be charged?
- Local Baskit offers three different Baskit Styles at different pricing levels:
The Artisan Baskit features high quality meats and fish and unique ingredients for the adventurous cook, with challenging recipes and the ability to selection from any Baskit style. The average serving cost is $11-12 and kits range from $48 to $158 depending on your number of meals per week and your serving size.
The Fresh Baskit features healthy and convenient selections with an average serving cost of $8-9. Select from five to six Fresh selections that offer a variety of healthy and often kid-approved meals. Fresh Baskit prices range from $44 to $128 depending on your number of meals per week and your serving size.
The Simple Baskit provides many of the same recipes as the Fresh line, but we only deliver the produce and dry ingredients. You would supply the meat or fish for the recipe. This is a great option for seniors or for singles so you can reduce produce waste and have the same convenient meal planning. The average serving cost is $4-5 and kits range from $18 to $68 depending on your number of meals per week and your serving size.
