Hello Mr. Benny?

Sadly, I worry that HelloFresh is more likely to say Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto.

Just like every other shop that ever unionized, or is struggling to find workers?

Get out of here, concern troll.

That's kind of what they do, even if only by proximate cause.

They send you the stuff and have you cook it. That leaves you the recipes and an understanding of how to make the meal.

Part of the joy of cooking is learning to cook is sourcing your ingredients. It makes you buy local, see other cultures, talk to new people, provides pleasant sensory feedback (like walking in a spice store or a fine cheese store for the first time)
You get an understanding of why you like certain cuisine while at the same time make you curious for different ones.
This on the other hand is a partial human experience.
All I am saying is that their customers are missing out on that.
Maybe i was too dismissive in my initial post.

I get what you're saying, but back in my 20s when I was (a) only really cooking things on a grill or out of a box and (b) I wasn't making enough money yet to comfortably and freely spend at grocery stores and farmers markets to just "experiment" with a dish that may turn out awful on first try at home, I utilized a similar, local (and I think even cheaper) service to HelloFresh for like two months or so just have someone point the way in a more tangible manner than most cookbooks could provide (and cooking demos on YouTube weren't as common then) to be like "ok, you can use these vegetables and this protein to make THIS" and it served as my gateway to becoming a serviceable home cook as well as much more discernable food shopper.

On top of that you begin to learn techniques. That can't be underestimated. When you're completely, or mostly new, to cooking you don't understand how the process works. YooToober videos help, but until you get some experience (and confidence) something like HelloFresh can get you started.

So you saying this is a job that won't ever automate or fark over workers?

The recovery from this pandemic is probably the last real chance labour has to take some of the tilt out of this crooked game, and it is great to see people fight for it.

Also, I just put up a building for Hello Fresh about 6 months ago.  And Good Food after that.  This whole meal kit industry is both extremely wasteful and somehow lucrative at the same time.
