It’s a tradition to send a meal to a grieving family at funeral homes in Corvallis, OR. Most grieving families don’t have time or the desire to cook and meal and they may not even have an appetite to eat as they should. By sending a meal to them you don’t just send them food to eat, you let them know that you care about them and want to make sure they are staying healthy. Even if you don’t cook, you can still send a meal to the family. Here are a few options to consider.
If your budget allows for it, catering is a nice way to send a meal to a family. Most caterers have several options and you don’t just have to choose from one food or entrée. You can send an entire meal including sides and desserts. The caterer will prepare the food and deliver it to the family. The family can choose to serve the meal to guests who visit them during the funeral or save it and have it for dinner. Catering can be expensive, so be sure to check prices before you place an order.
While you may not feel like pizza is the best meal to send to a grieving family, most families will appreciate it. Pizza is fast, affordable, and easy to send to people. Most people love pizza so they won’t mind getting one. You can send a couple of different types of pizza to make sure everyone at the house gets something they like. Pizza is also a good option if there are children in the home, as children love pizza. You can either pick up the pizzas yourself or order and pay for them and have them delivered to the family.
If you don’t mind preparing something but would prefer to not have to cook, you may want to make a sandwich tray. You just arrange various meats, cheeses, and sandwich toppings on a platter and deliver them to the family. They can make their own sandwiches as they please. If you don’t want to prepare the sandwich tray yourself, you can order one from the local grocery store. Any store with a deli or meat counter should be able to prepare a tray of meats and cheeses that can be used to make sandwiches.
If you want to send a meal to a family, but don’t have the time or the ability to cook the meal yourself, there are other options.
