TERMS OF SERVICE
This Agreement (the "Agreement") is an agreement between you and Green Grown Meals, LLC (“Green Grown Meals”) that states the terms and conditions under which you may use the Site and receive services, which includes processing and delivery of product orders (the "GGM Service"). Note that special terms for Green Grown Meals customers are contained at the end of this Agreement, and, where applicable, those terms supplement or, to the degree that they are inconsistent, supersede these terms. Your use of the GGM Service and the Site constitutes your agreement to the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not agree with all of the terms and conditions, do not use the Site or the GGM Service.
If you have any questions about this Agreement or the Site please access our Customer Service Department: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ordering through the Site. Orders must be received before posted cutoff times for a given product. Available ordering windows and promotions will be shown as you proceed through the ordering process. To view cutoff times, visit your school’s dedicated page on our website. It is the customer’s sole responsibility to place the order within the acceptable time limit and deadline and GreenGrown Meals shall not hold any responsibility in failure to do so.
The customer is solely responsible to carefully review the order, right before placing it, review the invoice, once the order has been placed, as well as report any inconsistencies, if any, to email@example.com allowing two business days in advance for the changes to be applied.
Cancellation and Refunds
You may cancel orders by 12 PM (noon), two-business days in advance for the day you wish to stop your service, by contacting our Customer Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive a credit for a future purchase. Only three (3) meals per month shall be cancelled and credited.
If your school is closed due to unforeseen weather conditions, Green Grown Meals will credit any orders on that day for 50% of the price. No refunds will be issued in this case.
Termination of Service
The GGM service can be terminated within the first two-week period of subscription, in order for a pro-rated refund amount to be issued. After this two-week period, no refunds for the remaining of the meals will be issued, if you wish to terminate the service.
Once you have terminated our service, you can reorder in the future. Should you wish to terminate our services for the second time, GGM will not issue any refunds for the remaining amount of meals.
You can order up to two business days in advance of the day you wish to start your lunch program.
You can order anytime within the subscription period. However, no refunds will be issued for any meals that were not consumed, due to late subscription.
Adjustments to your Order
You understand that you are subscribing to a meal plan that consists of a predetermined number of meals as you designate on the site at the time of purchase of the particular plan. Once we process your order, you can choose a different meal for your child no later than five business days prior to the day you wish to change.
Green Grown Meals offers only the substitutions listed, as an alternative daily meal option.
Green Grown Meals reserves the right to make any adjustments to menu items as needed due to product availability, without given prior notice. We will try and provide a similar product, but no assurance can be made based on availability.
While Green Grown Meals will make every effort to keep all ingredient information and allergy references up-to-date on our website, it is the parent’s or legal guardian’s sole responsibility to report any dietary restrictions at email@example.com and order lunches that meet the child’s individual needs according to dietary restrictions and allergies.
Neither Green Grown Meals, nor its officers, members, employees, vendors, suppliers agents, affiliated schools, advisors, or its or their affiliates will bear any responsibility if a child is allergic to any item ordered by its parents or guardians through Green Grown Meals. Please note that while our meals are produced in a peanut free, tree-nut free and shellfish free facility, there can be no assurances that your child may not have an adverse reaction to an item that they consume.
Delivery of Products
Green Grown Meals uses cooler bags to maintain the quality and integrity of your products up until the food is delivered to your child. Green Grown Meals cannot and shall not guarantee the integrity of your child’s meals if it is removed from such bags prior to delivery to your child. Green Grown Meals shall bear no responsibility and shall not be held liable if the food is removed from our storage bags prior to delivery to your child or in case of mishandling, or misuse by the school. Green Grown Meals shall also not be responsible if the school or its employees or agents modify or improperly store the storage bags.
In an effort to meet the delivery time of all our customers, our delivery personnel will wait for a brief inspection of the number of items delivered, but shall not enter the school premises beyond the front desk area. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
In the case of inclement weather or unforeseen delivery implications, 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 service representative may call or email you to let you know the status of your delivery time. We will make all efforts to resume our delivery as scheduled, as soon as conditions permit. If your school’s location (i.e., street, avenue) is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact the school staff to determine the best alternate location and/or date.
Credit Card Payment and Pricing
Green Grown Meals will execute all the payments via STRIPE.COM
Your credit/debit card will be charged for your order on the day your plan is purchased. Green Grown Meals will not process orders that attempt to use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-limit credit card. We will make our best efforts to contact you if this occurs.
Green Grown Meals reserves the right to change its billing methods and pricing. Customers will be notified thirty (30) days in advance through our website.

You agree that your obligations and the obligations of each User set forth in this Agreement are necessary and reasonable in order to protect the GGM Parties and our business. You expressly agree that due to the unique nature of our business, monetary damages would be inadequate to compensate us for any breach by you of your covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement.

Any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof shall be settled solely and exclusively by binding arbitration held in White Plains, New York, administered by JAMS and conducted in English. You expressly agree that any dispute about the scope of this Agreement to arbitrate and/or the arbitrability of any particular dispute shall be resolved in arbitration in accordance with this section. In the event that you threaten to litigate a dispute in court, we may institute arbitration to enjoin you from filing a complaint or petition in court; provided, however, that any of the GGM Parties may, without inconsistency with this arbitration provision, apply to any court for a preliminary remedy, i.e., equitable or injunctive relief, or to seek enforcement of the arbitral award. You expressly agree that an arbitrator may issue all appropriate declaratory and injunctive relief necessary to ensure the arbitration of disputes. Any such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then prevailing JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, with the following exceptions to such rules if in conflict:
one arbitrator shall be chosen by JAMS;
any arbitration must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises;
each party to the arbitration will pay an equal share of the expenses and fees of the arbitrator, together with other expenses of the arbitration incurred or approved by the arbitrator; and
arbitration may proceed in the absence of any party if written notice (pursuant to the JAMS’ rules and regulations) of the proceedings has been given to such party. You agree to bear your own attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses. You agree to abide by all decisions and awards rendered in such proceedings. Such decisions and awards rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and conclusive. All such controversies, claims, or disputes shall be settled in this manner in lieu of any action at law or equity; provided, that, nothing in this subsection shall be construed as precluding us from bringing an action for injunctive or equitable relief. IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE BECOMES NOT APPLICABLE OR IF ANY OF THE GGM PARTIES SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF THEN YOU:
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY AS TO ANY ISSUE RELATING HERETO IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING, OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER MATTER INVOLVING THE GGM PARTIES HERETO, AND
SUBMIT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURTS LOCATED IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NEW YORK AND YOU AGREE NOT TO INSTITUTE ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY OTHER COURT IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION.

You agree to arbitrate solely on an individual basis, and that this Agreement does not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one User’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. In the event the prohibition on class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the remaining portions of these arbitration provisions in this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
