We work hard to make our Weekly Food Box program as convenient and worry-free as possible. Below you can find many common questions.

The best method of contact is email!
Our help desk phone number is set up as a delayed messaging service so someone will get back to you within 48 hours.
For immediate assistance or for anything time sensitive please email erin@yellowbirdfs.com or ybfs.help@gmail.com.
Yes! While food safety is always a priority for us, we are making sure all of our growers/employees are wearing gloves and hankerchief masks at this time.
We have also implemented a contactless home delivery option if you would prefer to social distance to the max we will deliver food right to your door! 
Also, all of our public Columbus area drop spots will now be done straight from our truck in large parking lots- meaning the only person touching your food box will be our driver (wearing gloves) and you!
If you'd like to switch from home delivery, change your days, or even just see what new drops we have you can head here.
If you'd like to update your pick-up location you can email erin@yellowbirdfs.com the day you'd like to pick up by Sunday at 11:59pm and she can make that update for the following week.

Columbus area: deliveries are Wednesday/Thursday/Friday.

Mount Vernon Home Deliveries are Thursday.

Marion/Delphos/Findlay area home deliveries are always Friday.

While we always strive to get you the safest and freshest products, our products do not have additives so they may have a shorter shelf life date.

In line with the USDA Product Dating guidance document:

o A "Best if Used By/Before" date indicates when a product will be of best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date.
o A "Sell-By" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale for inventory management. It is not a safety date.
o A “Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. It is not a safety date except for when used on infant formula as described below.
Are Foods Safe to Eat After the Date Passes?…………………….. With an exception of infant formula, if the date passes during home storage, a product should still be safe and wholesome if handled properly until the time spoilage is evident (Chill Refrigerate Promptly). Spoiled foods will develop an off odor, flavor or texture due to naturally occurring spoilage bacteria. If a food has developed such spoilage characteristics, it should not be eaten.
Please log into your account and select preferences. You are able to add your dietary restrictions directly to your account. When that food item comes up we will try our best to substitute it for an extra veggie or comparable non-perishable.
Add-ons and store orders are delivered on whatever rotation you have set up with your account! Add-ons and store orders are packaged separately from your veggie box with your name label on them. Some locations keep add-ons in refrigeration so please reach out with any questions to see where your add-ons are located if you are having trouble locating them. Certain orders may be in bulk boxes (like eggs or milk) with each item personally labeled, while other orders may be in a separate bag/box with your name label on the entire bag/box. Please only take items with your name label!

When we say sustainable we mean 100% of our veggies, meat, and dairy are non-GMO, grass fed, and free pastured. All of the small family farms we work with follow these practices. It is important to us that every single step of our food system – from the soil, to the animals, to our farmers, and to you – is treated with great value and care.
