Meal-Train-Image-2forwebWhen faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, friends or family members might ask – “How Can I Help?”  Often they offer to provide that help by cooking dinner during treatment, but it’s tough to figure out who’s bringing what and when they’re bringing it!   That’s where Meal Train comes in.  It’s a free Web site that organizes meals for friends or loved ones in need.
Here’s how it works…

MealTrain.com allows anyone to set up a free meal calendar.  In the calendar, you can log on, choose a day of the week during which you would like to make a meal.  Each participant then chooses that day, writes what meal they will be bringing so other members of the Meal Train don’t bring the same thing.  How many lasagnas can you eat in one week anyway?  Meal Train also lets you type in the survivor’s address, their favorite meals, a preferred drop-off time and any allergies their family members might have.  Friends who choose to help in other ways may opt to pass on cooking a meal and send the patient flowers or donations instead.  For more information on Meal Train, click here.
