meal or food delivery options for the edgell road area of framingham
i'm a former bostonian in search of some vegetarian meal or food delivery options for the edgell road area of framingham.
my dear friend starts chemo this friday.
cooking is pretty low on her list of priorities right now.
since i'm now in texas, i can't make things and bring them by.
so, i am looking for good delivery options.
here in austin, we have a great local/sustainable/organic food delivery service, greenling.
is there anything similar, other than peapod?
if all else fails, a whole foods gift card is my last option.
(p.s. i recall some of you from years past, when i posted under another username, blandina.)
just a bit of advice, you should avoid trying to send her any spicy or Asian food until you find out how her tastebuds respond to the chemo. Having just finished my own treatment a few months ago, I could not eat soy sauce or ginger. Soy tasted like aluminum, and ginger burned my throat. But everybody is different.
she may not want to eat much at all...flowers might be more comforting than food.
Sorry I can't help with specific suggestions though. Delivery options are fairly rare out here in the burbs.
That's good and thoughtful advice Cat!
Most of us of a certain temperament (er, obsession) immediately leap to FOOD! when someone needs comfort. Sometimes that makes perfect sense, sometimes not so much. I am reminded of a buddy who recently lost his mom after a long illness. Another friend of ours immediately decided he needed lots of food and arranged for delivery. Awfully nice gesture, but turned out the friend had taken off for a much needed break after the care-taking was over, and the food went uneaten.
