Updates due to Coronavirus
A Pandemic is Difficult
Staying Healthy Shouldn't Be
We want to help
In light of current events, we are changing some of our business practices. We will continue to create farm fresh, organic, sustainable meals that you can eat on your schedule. However, our hours and ordering practices may change. As the pandemic evolves, we will continue to update this page of the website to keep you informed.
When placing your order, specify if you would like curbside pickup. We will then contact you with more detailed instructions.
Delivery available Friday between 2 – 5pm. Please leave a cooler outside, and we will contact you when your order has been dropped off.
We strongly recommend sending in your order online Monday – Wednesday and selecting a Friday or Saturday pickup time. This will help us meet production demands.
We never shut down our online ordering system. You can place your order at any hour of the day, but pickup times will be limited.
If we can prepare your order faster than by Friday/Saturday, we will contact you to give you more pickup options.
Call us at (816) 797 – 0553 to place your order. Your order is not confirmed until you receive a call back from us. Patience is appreciated!
We print our menu for our door. Stock may be limited for non pre-orders.
We will prepare all orders to be picked up cold (you heat at home), unless you leave a note for us specifying otherwise.
FAQs (Pandemic Edition)
Is there an order minimum?
There is a $30 minimum for all delivery orders. The minimum order increases as the distance from our kitchen increases.
Is there a delivery charge?
There is a $6 delivery minimum charge. This charge increases $1 for each mile outside of our minimum radius.

We currently offer delivery Wednesday and Friday from 2-5pm. Please note that this is a delivery window, and we can't guarantee a specific dropoff time.
What is your delivery radius?
Our radius is
I see pickup times available on Tuesday. I thought I could only pick up my food on Friday or Saturday?
When do you update your website menu?
Why are some items listed on your website's weekly menu, but they are not available for online ordering?
To be technical, we have two different systems for online ordering and website management. (Small business constraints)! As we sell out of dishes for the week, we remove their availability from our online ordering. We cannot update our website menu as quickly as we can update our online ordering system. So, you may notice a discrepancy between online ordering and our website.
Why can I no longer pick my dishes up immediately after ordering them? I thought the online ordering system listed what was in stock.
If you're reading this, you're probably a returning customer. We apologize for the confusing switch in our system!
How can I get curbside pickup?
When placing your order, please leave us a note that you would like curbside pickup. Include a phone number that we can text or call. We will then contact you to schedule a specific pickup time. We will include further instructions when we contact you.
Can you heat my food for me?
At this time, we will be serving all dishes cold. Due to high production demand and limited time, we cannot heat any dishes for customers.
Can I eat at canihaveabite?
At this moment, we are refusing all dining in at canihaveabite. Kansas City has enacted a city-wide ban on all dine-in services at restuarants. You may still take your food to-go or get it delivered.
Where do I park?
There is a parking garage with an entrance on 47th street. Parking on the street outside Unity Temple is another option.
Is it better for me to put my dishes in the fridge or freezer?

Health & Safety
How are you keeping things sanitary and safe?
We have always strictly complied with Health Department standards. Beyond that, we are double (and triple) santizing all stations with a (1) Health Department authorized santizing solution and (2) isopropyl alcohol. Employees frequently wash their hands for at least 20 seconds and we wear gloves at all times. We also change our gloves frequently in order to keep our kitchen food allergy safe. (We've actually always done this!).
Can I walk inside canihaveabite to place or pickup my order?
Per city ordinance to maintain social distancing, we no longer allow customers to enter the building. Please place your order online. Call us when you are outside (whether in your car or standing outside), and we will bring your order out to you.
