Cancellation Policy:

We work very hard planning and teaching these classes… which is why they sellout so quickly and so far in advance. Last minute cancellations are neither good for us, nor others who would have signed up for the class.

It is for this reason that any cancellations must be done seven (7) days in advance for the class, and the money you spent on the class will be converted into a gift certificate to be used for anything on RealFoodToronto.com – whether it be another class or groceries.

Cancellations that are done less than seven (7) days in advance forfeit 100% of the class charge.
