When someone you know has a crisis in the family, like a serious illness, many people want to bring a meal to them to ease their stress. Sometimes too many people bring food on the same day leading to waste. The solution is to organize so that friends don’t overlap with their food gifts. While it’s possible to do this with one person in charge, here is an online organizer that everyone can access.
From what cancer patients have told me it’s often best to have a meal delivered every other day, not every day. That way they have a chance to finish the leftovers. Again, less waste. Also be sure everyon labels their dishes with their name & phone #. Please make arrangements to pick up your dishes a few days later. A huge pile of dishes to return to various poeple just adds to their stress. This is from experience. Your support and good wishes/prayers are always welcome too. Thanks for your kindness!
