What exactly is a meal train, you ask?


It’s the process of organizing meals for people who are going through a significant life event such as a birth of a child, illness, or medical procedure. Friends and family organize meal trains to ensure their loved ones are well fed during busy and stressful times.


If you’re asked or volunteer to join a meal train and are unsure of what to make, or just need some tried and true recipes, then you’re in the right place.


We’ve gathered everything from salad and main dish recipes, to side dishes and desserts. All are winners and all will be a comfort to the recipient.


Note: Always ask if there is a food allergy before bringing over home cooked meals.
