Frequently Asked Questions

Before pick-up

1. How will I know what food I will actually receive?

Food choices near the end of the day will always vary depending on availability. We try our best to manage your expectations through the listing description, you will find out what you will actually receive upon arrival at the store. ​

2. Does Bring Me Home cater to different dietary preferences?

While our partner restaurants do cater to different dietary requirements, we are unable to guarantee that the food you receive will meet your requirements, unless stated in the bio that the restaurant offers those specific options. Our primary goal at this stage is to reduce food waste, but we are constantly working to improve our offerings.

3. How do I cancel an order? Can I get a refund if I didn't pick up my food?

Unfortunately, our app doesn't enable you to cancel an order. We are also unable to refund you if you are late or didn't show up since the merchant would've reserved the meal for you and would have to throw away the food.

During pick-up

1. Can I choose what I get when I arrive?

This depends on the cafe/restaurant itself. Some retailers will give you a pre-packed meal, but most will give you options to choose from. ​

2. How do I know if the food is safe to eat?

Each restaurant is subjected to food safety laws (Food Act 1984) and therefore can only serve you quality food that is safe to consume, during their business operating hours. We also encourage you to consume your purchased orders on the day as well and not leave it sitting for over 24 hours unless you store it in the fridge or freezer. If you suspect or encounter any issues, please contact us immediately.

3. What happens if I am late?

You can collect your food at the pickup time shown in the restaurant's bio and on your order receipt. If you come too early, the merchant can refuse to give you the order, when you arrive too late the merchant may be closed. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund you if you are late since the merchant would've reserved the meal for you and would have to bin the food. However, you can send message us via the app to request pick up the next day and we will try our best to arrange this for you. ​PS: If you enable notifications, the app will remind you when your food is ready for collection.

After pick-up

1. What should I do if I am not happy with my order?

Contact us via the app or send an email to info@bringmehome.com.au, with your account name, order details and a photo of the food if possible. We will sort it out with you and will always try our best to give you the best possible outcome.
