What is a Meal Train?

A meal train is the act of organizing meal giving around significant life events.

But what does this really mean?

When a friend is in need, everyone says "What can I do to help out?" The answer is usually to help them with a meal. When many friends give a meal, this is a meal train.

Think about it like this:
Friends going through a difficult or challenging time due to a birth, surgery, illness, etc., could use some help. Willing friends, neighbors, colleagues, and congregation members would love to meet this need, if they only knew what to do. An organized meal train gives them a way to show they care by cooking and taking a meal to a friend or family member.

But why should I use MealTrain.com?
To help eliminate the confusion related to meal giving. No longer are questions left unanswered like: What do they like? When are they available? What have they already had?.

Providing each giver this information helps simplify the process so they can focus on supporting others with meals.
