Funeral tomorrow in Greensboro: asked to bring food. What & where!

  • 5

Please help. I live in hickory - not far, and I can bring a chiller and or a slowcooker to keep something warm. But either way I don't know what to buy or where best to buy it.

I will be traveling through W-S, so that's an option as well.

In essence any place along 40 between hickory and Greensboro would work.

Have an 80 dollar budget to buy food for the family as there will be a gathering post 4pm funeral

Thanks for ideas on what to buy and where to buy it!

  1. I would say go by Lex 1 and get BBQ but they are closed on Sunday.

    There's a Fresh Market on Battleground. Their prepared items are pretty good.

      I prefer the special mom and pops, but just like here in Hickory, the good ones will be closed on Sunday's. Bummers about Lex's but I'm not surprised.

      It's a local family. I don't need to bring anything fancy. Good ole local southern comfort food will work. I see what Fresh Market has.

        I like the mom and pops best too! I just can't think of any in G'boro open on Sunday. Funeral food is all about comfort, I know. You might want to make some deviled eggs and put them in your cooler!

          My neighbor is saying, "just go to Cracker Barrel" and get ham, green beans and mac/cheese and call it a day.

          I feel so defeated, but.... I might just do it because I'm buying for several friends and family that can't attend. I now have a budget if $125 to buy food.

          Yikes... sigh....

            That's a good neighbor and a good idea. Try not to stress too much. Others will be bringing food also.
