What You Need to Know
If you are in need of a meal registry for yourself, you should not feel embarrassed about asking for help in this way. Many people want to help, and a meal registry provides a structured way for them to do so.
If you are providing meals, it's important that you actually bring the meals when you say you will. Keep in mind that meal registries are not a way of scheduling time to spend with the person you're bringing a meal to, so don't overstay your welcome in the home. Conversely, don't feel like you need to hang out when you drop off the meal.
