How To Cancel Home Chef

June 26, 2019

Home Chef is one of the best meal kit delivery services on the market, bringing top-quality ingredients and chef-crafted recipes to the homes of its patrons across the country. However, while it does have an outstanding reputation, you may wish to make changes to your order or even cancel your subscription altogether. Fortunately, you can modify, pause or stop deliveries from Home Chef whenever you wish just by following a few simple steps.
