Meals delivered to home

My uncle, who has pancreatic cancer, has been put on home hospice. He and his family live several states away from any extended family, so it's hard for any of us to feel very helpful during this time. I was thinking maybe we could have meals delivered to them to help my aunt not have to spend time cooking after she gets home from already working a full day. I've been googling and found many companies that deliver prepared meals that just have to be heated and eaten. Does anyone have any experience with any of these types of companies? I'd love any recommendations or other tips. Thank you!

What a thoughtful and useful gift! I don't have any experience with this, but I think just having food there and "ready to go" will be so very much appreciated (regardless of the taste or even how it looks!).

Please keep us updated.

When I was heading up this sort of thing for my friend with cancer, her out of town friends would use pizza/subs from local restaurants. I wonder if the hospice office can give you some ideas?

Another option might be restaurant gift cards. A restaurant that your aunt passes on her way home from work might be helpful.

They should try meals on wheels if they have that available in their area. They both could possibly qualify for them. One as the patient and one as the care giver.
