Important things to remember:

Meal Train recommendation

The CDC states that the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. This means avoiding close contact, and putting distance between yourself and other people. Meal Train therefore recommends that participants/givers either arrange for restaurant delivery of a meal or perform a "contact-free" delivery.

"Contact-free" delivery

Maintain distance between yourself and the recipient and avoid entering the recipient's home.

Options include:

  • Place the meal or groceries in a cooler on the porch.
  • Leave the meal or groceries by the front door and return to your car. Once in your car, kindly call the recipient and let them know the delivery is available.
  • If no one answers, contact the Meal Train organizer or, if possible, attempt a "Contact-Free" delivery with a neighbor or family member.

Restaurant delivery

Consider using a local restaurant to prepare and deliver the meal for you. You can use a service like Grubhub, DoorDash, or Postmates to arrange for meal delivery up to 1 week in advance, or contact the restaurant directly.

Send a Grubhub or restaurant/grocery gift card so the recipient may place their own order for delivery from a restaurant of their choice.

Safety is a priority

If you are sick, the CDC recommends that you stay home, except to get medical care. If you are sick and currently scheduled to deliver a meal, please sign in and cancel the meal booking. We will alert the organizer and recipient of the cancellation. Your health and safety must be a priority.

Please stay safe and healthy,
Michael Laramee - Co-Founder of MealTrain.com
