What people are saying...

“I usually do all my cooking from scratch, and as a vegetarian, it is hard to find food to order in that is healthy and tasty…these boxes have been a lifesaver!”

– Danya

“It makes lunchtime feel special to make myself a fancy sandwich and to put something fresh and delicious in my body that I didn’t have to cook. I miss eating out and this brings a little of that home.”

– Allison

My husband, who is a dedicated meat eater, was shocked at how tasty and filling the sandwiches were! We look forward to ordering again.

Frequently asked questions

The Starter Box is designed to be a tour of some of our most popular meals from all our different boxes – it includes two servings each of: 3 lunch/dinner entrees, 2 breakfasts, a snack, a dessert sampler, and a make-your-own soda bar! Most items are heat-and-serve; some require a bit of prep work (like slicing a tomato or heating up some bread). The box also comes with clear recipes for how to create the meals and how to store the ingredients.

Outside of the Starter Box, our other full-sized meal boxes include everything you need to put together 3-5 full meals, 1 hearty snack, and 2 desserts. These boxes come in two sizes: boxes designed for households of 2 people and boxes designed for households of 4 people. 

Please note that all food at Clover is in our commissary kitchen, so we can’t guarantee that there hasn’t been any crosscontamination (this is for anyone who has a very serious allergy).

Changes or cancellations to your Clover At Home order must be made 48 hours or earlier from your chosen pickup/delivery day. This allows us to waste as little food as possible, and also keep things efficient in our kitchen. If your scheduled day suddenly doesn’t work for you, please consider asking us to donate your food instead, and then re-ordering for the date that does work. To keep our boxes affordable for everyone, we cannot make any customizations or substitutions. Thank you for understanding!

For the first time in Clover history, we are doing in-house delivery (our drivers, our vehicles!) It’s been quite a learning process, but something we’re very excited to offer as part of the Meal Box program.

Our current delivery radius is within 30 miles of CloverHUB (1075 Cambridge St, Cambridge).

Delivery for meal boxes is set at a flat fee of $9.99. If your meal box order is greater than $60, we can provide free delivery. We deliver boxes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays!

We are currently unable to guarantee an exact delivery time for your order. Your order will be delivered some time during the day or night of your scheduled day. We do try to provide estimates – the night before your scheduled order, you will receive an email with an estimated delivery window. If all goes as planned, your order will arrive at that estimated time! If something unexpected happens (vehicle issues, traffic, etc.) your order may be delayed. We will do our best to give you a heads up if this happens. Once your order has been dropped off, you’ll receive a text message confirming the delivery. This message will go to the phone number you provided when filling out your delivery address in the app.

We are offering contactless pick-up at CloverHUB (1075 Cambridge St, Cambridge) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between 11am-5pm.

When ordering for pickup, you will be asked to choose a time slot for your pickup. This is to avoid crowding and keep everyone as socially-distanced as we can.

If your order is above $60 and you are able to choose in-person pickup instead of delivery, we will thank you for helping us reduce our fuel use with a $20 credit toward your next Meal Box order! Extra thanks if you shun your car to walk or ride your bike to get your bounty 🙂 You’ll receive this automatically in your app after you’ve placed your order.

When you come to pick up your order, you’ll have two options:

  1. Come in and give us your name – we have a vestibule just inside the doorway and staff are behind plexiglass. A Clover employee will bring your order to the front of the store and place it on a table for you to grab.
  2. If you don’t want to enter the store, you can let us know you’ve arrived by pressing a button in your app (more details are attached to your order receipt). A Clover employee will come outside with your order and either place it on a table for a contactless hand-off, or find your vehicle and place it directly in the trunk.

A few notes:

  • Please arrive on-time for your time-slot. NOT early!
  • We are unable to hold any orders past 5pm of your pick-up day. If you are late to pick up, your box will be donated.
  • Help us make this as safe as possible by showing up on time with clean hands, wearing a face mask, and following social distancing guidelines.

Currently we offer pickup/delivery of meal boxes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Orders open 1 week prior to the day, and stay open for 5 days.

TUESDAY ORDERS

  • Open: Tuesday the week before
  • Close: Sunday at 5pm

THURSDAY ORDERS

  • Open: Thursday the week before
  • Close: Tuesday at 5pm

SATURDAY ORDERS

We’re deliberately opening very slowly and in as contact-free of a way as possible. 8 Clover locations are now open for contactless takeout and curbside-pickup (via the Clover app); and delivery (via Doordash). We also have outdoor seating at select Clover locations as long as the weather cooperates (CloverBBY at 565 Boylston St; CloverHFI at 496 Mass Ave in Central Square; CloverLMA at 360 Longwood Ave). you can see our most up-to-date open locations, hours, and menu on order.cloverfoodlab.com. We will not be opening for indoor dining anytime soon but we can’t wait to see you and wave hello and smile under our masks!

Here’s a little message from Ayr, from back in May:

To keep our boxes affordable for everyone, we cannot make any customizations or substitutions.

If you are allergic or don’t like a component in one of our main boxes, we recommend you build-a-box using our Build Your Own section.

Like our restaurant food, everything we produce in-house at Clover is certified Kosher under the Orthodox Rabbinic supervision of Lighthouse Kosher by the wonderful Rabbi Barry Dolinger.
 
Furthermore, for items on our menu that are not directly made by us (for example – donuts from Union Square Donuts or coffee cake from Revival Cafe), Lighthouse Kosher connects directly with those vendors on a case-by-case basis to confirm a supervised, segregated Kosher run of their product specifically produced for Clover.
