Meal Train

--by MSFriend, posted Nov 19, 2017
One of the parishioners in my church, who lives alone, recently had foot surgery. A meal train where people sign up to bring a meal to a person in need was set up. Last Friday I accompanied a friend who signed up to bring a pizza and visit. This week it's my turn. Looking forward to sharing time and putting a smile on someone's face.

There you put together the number of people in the family, their address, time of delivery and any restrictions, along with the dates for which meals are needed. Then you email everyone on your contact list and give them an opportunity to volunteer for a date. Anyone who volunteers can pick their date and then inserts what they will be providing. This way everyone is on the same page and the recipient doesn't get repeats. It's an awesome concept. I've done many and the recipients are so grateful.
