Tips when providing a meal:

  • Aim for a main dish (meat, sandwich, or casserole) and a side dish (salad, vegetable, or fruit). You may also include dessert if you wish.
  • The meal does not need to be homemade. Some ideas include:

Main dishes:

  • rotisserie chicken
  • tavern
  • broasted chicken takeout taco meat, shells, & fixings pizza delivery
  • hot ham & cheese
  • roast
  • ham balls
  • spaghetti
  • casserole
  • Stouffer’s lasagna

Sides:

  • lettuce salad cooked veggies raw veggie tray fruit salad
  • jello
  • garlic bread chips
  • fresh fruit applesauce


  • Ask a friend to help provide a meal together.
  • Please deliver your meals in disposable containers so the receiver does not have to return dishes to you.
  • Typically we ask that your meal be delivered hot and ready to eat at 5:30 pm, unless otherwise specified.
