Just curious….I don’t see an acknowledgment of Personal Protective Equipment and procedures with regard to customer and employee safety. I have a compromised elderly parent who receives your product and would like to continue ordering but want to be convinced that safety measures are taking place in your warehouse, and if so, what are they?

Best regards,

Hello. I continue to be ignored by your customer service team. I was told around noon that I would receive a response shortly. It’s is now 5:15pm.

I have been recommending your service to friends, family, and coworkers but after today I don’t think I can do that anymore.

Food is not the province of any one ethnicity or country. I’m sure there are things you prepare and eat that are not grown where you live.

I am an exper,; born here and if you have any questions; I would love to assist you.

Misfits is simply the best!! My dear friend turned me on to your service. I couldn’t be more grateful! I have told everyone I get “Veggie Christmas” once a week! I love being surprised by what I will receive and am never disappointed with quality and care of my fresh veggies and fruits!! Keep on keeping on Misfits! I’m customer for life!!

I was to recieve my order today by end of day and it is 11:57pm…still no box. Can you please let me know what happened to it since my payment has already been taken from my bank account. Patiently waiting.

I am finding it hard to get in touch with someone in customer service. I have had several bad URLs, you don’t have an 800 number. I feel like I am running out of options. Please get back to me m

Mangoes are wonderful! great source of fiber and glad to have such variety delivered to my door.

Tommy Atkins are not flavorful and very fibrous . Ataulfo, Kent, and Valencia are better in flavor and cheap in price.

I am thrilled with my very first box of Misfits. Didn’t know what I was going to do with so many radishes you sure crazy so I read up on them and I roasted them tonight they were amazing. And I’m having a lot of fun learning about turn ups.. so far I have sauteed them with olive oil and other vegetables they were delicious and tonight I roasted some with some of the other amazing things from the box also amazing. You are helping be just a little bit outside the box so to speak. Next I’ll deal with the kale

It was a close call, life/death situation.I got some mushrooms in my delivery last week that I’d never seen before. I’ve never had a problem eating any mushrooms previously. I got a severe allergic reaction causing my tongue to swell with the first small bite.. It was a true emergency and could have resulted in an anaphylactic reaction if not for some very quick thinking. I want to know the name of the mushroom. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SERIOUSLY MIA. Zero response. Most importantly you need to label food that is foraged and never seen in a supermarket.

Hi Thea, we’re so sorry to hear about this. We just heard back from our suppliers with more information on these mushrooms and you will receive a reply from our customer service team today.
