We agreed that there are people in need all around us, and a small gesture like giving a meal can be a blessing both to giver and receiver. This post will highlight the best tips, helpful suggestions, and friendly advice on bringing meals to others. When I know of a family or individual who could benefit from a home cooked meal there is a natural progression of steps that I usually take to bring them food.
If I feel the family can be disturbed, I’ll call directly to communicate about meals. I inquire about allergies, strong aversions and special diets (especially if a family member is sick, or the mother is breastfeeding).
By hold well, I mean they can sit a day or two in the refrigerator without getting soggy, drying out or turning into something altogether nasty. Take Them A Meal – A free online tool for coordinating the delivery of meals to someone in need.
Dona€™t be discouraged if your meal is occasionally turned down, nit-picked, or unappreciated.

This heartwarming book encourages positive behavior by using the concept of an invisible bucket to show children how easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation, and love by "filling buckets."The updated and revised 10th anniversary edition of this best-selling, award-winning, 32-page picture book will help readers better understand that "bucket dipping" is a negative behavior, not a permanent label.
Thank you to all who took the time to share your experiences with either giving or receiving meals. In fact, by the sounds of things, lives were very nearly saved just because a meal -or series of meals- was received during a time of need. Those who had been recipients spoke passionately about how touched they were and how helpful it was to be given a practical gift, in lieu of flowers. Hopefully you will be encouraged to look around and reach out to people in your community through a hot meal. Each home situation is unique, and my relationship with the person varies, so these are not hard and fast rules, but more suggestions to consider. Folks may not necessarily wish you to come in a chat (and see their temporarily chaotic home). They should require little to no assembly, shouldn’t be overly complicated to eat (think, one-handed breastfeeding mama), and at the very least, need to survive the trip over. After nearly ten years in the professional cooking industry, she went from restaurant to RSS by trading her tongs and clogs for cookie cutters and a laptop, serving as editor here at Simple Bites. This is an encouraging community that offers comprehensive recipes, simple preserving tutorials, and honest tips for cooking with kids.


And there was another theme a€“ the food that was brought is the best, or very near to the best, food that they had ever eaten.
The couple that moved in next door?A  Well, cookies, muffins and other treats are all wonderful, but in most situations, what are really needed are nourishing main meals, especially if there are children in the family. Accept the hug and the smile that comes with it, and appreciate that someone is thinking of you. Her first book, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars - Family Recipes from the Kitchen of Simple Bites, was published in February 2015. Aside from the helpful notes that lasagna seems to be overdone, I too am disappointed by the (thankfully few) negative posts. Perhaps some folks have trouble accepting help,A  and cana€™t see past the ingredients to appreciate the love that went into a dish.
