The Easy Way to Send a Meal - Courtney's Story
Have you ever wanted to support your friends during a sudden crisis or loss, but they live out of state?
Our friend and team member, Courtney Leach, faced that dilemma. Her dear friend who lived a few states away suddenly needed some support and she desperately wanted to help. Courtney has a family of her own, so dropping everything to travel to her friend wasn't an immediate option even though that's what her heart wanted to do.
Courtney often provides meals for her friends and family who live near to her, so she understands how much a warm meal can mean during a challenging time. She can often be seen making one of Take Them A Meal's most popular recipes (Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken Thighs) or a last minute crock pot full of soup to share after carrying bags of groceries into her house.
Since cooking a meal in her own kitchen wasn't an option this time, Courtney decided to send a meal from the Take Them A Meal store. She chose the Five Quart Variety Pack to cheer up her friend along with an encouraging note.
"I felt comforted knowing I could help her from a distance during a time when she needed it."
This meal is a great choice because it contains five different quarts of soup (made with fresh ingredients) that can be stored in the freezer and pulled out whenever they are needed. The Good Ol' Chicken Noodle soup is comforting to someone recovering from surgery while the Red, White & Moo Chili works great as a baked potato topping for the family.
Courtney was relieved to be able to help her friend in such a practical way from a distance and in a way she knew would be truly helpful. Be sure to check out Courtney's story!
