MealPal offers different subscription plans based on location and how many meal credits you want per month. Meals can be as low as $3.48– what a steal!

Meals are available every weekday, not including the six major U.S. holidays as well as the day after Thanksgiving.

How Does MealPal Work?

How MealPal works

Each evening starting at 5 PM local time, you can log into the MealPal app and peruse the restaurants and meals of choice available for the next day. If you don’t select an item before the clock strikes midnight, you have until 1:30 PM the next day to select your item for same-day pick-up.

Once you decide on which option looks the most delectable, you select a pick-up time. That way, when you arrive at the restaurant to pick up your meal, it’s ready and waiting for you. You can reserve up to one lunch meal per day.

You can pause your account for up to three months at a time if you’re on vacation or just want to take a break.
