Take Them A Meal!

TakeThemAMeal.com is an online tool for coordinating the delivery of meals to loved ones. If someone is ill, elderly, or has had a new baby, oftentimes family, friends, co-workers, church members rally around these families to take them meals. In the past, one person would coordinate (by phone or e-mail) the scheduling of the meals. Now, the meal coordinator can use TakeThemAMeal.com to allow the meal providers to sign up for the day or days when they will provide meals to the meal recipients.

TakeThemAMeal.com is a free online tool designed to coordinate the delivery of meals to someone who is in need. A meal coordinator is able to create a customized online sign up sheet that makes it easy for friends and family to bring meals. In just a few minutes, phone numbers, driving directions, food allergies, and any other helpful details can be communicated to everyone involved.

In December of 2007, a close friend of the creators of the site collapsed from the sudden onset of a heart condition. The phone rang day and night because family, friends and neighbors wanted to help by bringing meals to her husband and four young children.

They felt overwhelmed by the task of coordinating meals, but friends wanted to help and knew the meals were needed. As a result, they designed a site that eliminated the need for making and receiving time-consuming phone calls.
