How to Set up a Meal Train
When bringing or setting up a signup genius for a friend, be sure and
- Ask them about allergies and food dislikes
- How many days a week they need food. Most likely they will have leftovers.
- Determine a time frame to drop off the meal, or have a cooler outside the home to collect the food.
- Have people predetermine what meals they might bring. This helps eliminate 12 pulled pork dinners. Things change but at least people can start getting creative.
- Make sure participants bring food in disposable food containers when possible. Nothing worse than a new mom having to do 10 casserole dishes and then driving them to their respective homes.
- Have friends who don’t like to cook, order pizza or buy a heat and serve meal from the grocery store.
