@Sparrows Order Request

Hi @Sparrows, welcome to !

You registered to order meals from the restaurants in our program: our dispatchers just made you a consumer. This means that the system now recognizes you as a consumer, and you can now see consumer-only areas of the website.

Here is a link for pointers on your first meal order, there are detailed instructions in it as to how to order a meal:

Note: this link is only clickable by registered consumers.

  • If you order meals tomorrow before 5pm, you will receive them the next day in the evening.
  • Please note, that, if you are in a condo or apartment building (essentially a building with an outside doors that is not yours), the driver will call you from her previous delivery, let you know of her arrival, and expect you downstairs: so it is very important that the phone number you list in our database (the one you registered with us) be accurate.
  • important note: we use the phone number you give to the restaurant to find your address in our database, so please give the restaurants the number you gave us when you order (they will ask for name and phone number).

If anything in the process is unclear, and if you need to ask questions, please reply to this thread, or create a new topic in the subcategory /Support/Questions/.

Our restaurant partners are still learning the system. Please remind them to take your credit card information when you call, if they don’t take it automatically.

Please send us feedback so we can improve what we can. To send feedback, you can reply to this thread, or create a new topic in the subcategory /Support/Feedback/.

We hope you will enjoy your meals. Thanks very much!

Hi Naomi,
Thank you so much for your help! My roommates kicked me out of the house to quarantine somewhere else. A friend let me sublease their one bedroom unit for the time being but it’s in Oakland. Can I get food delivered where I am staying at for 15 days?

Take Care,


@Sparrows, where exactly is it in Oakland? If it is really close to the Berkeley boundary that might work.

I’m on 7th Ave and International


@Sparrows, we are really sorry. This is too far for us to be able to deliver to: our drivers have to deliver 5-10 orders per evening, and we can’t send them out driving that far. We really wish we could help you :frowning:
