Ive been thinking about them all week and wanting to do something! Praying for the family and that Ryan makes a full recovery!

Really?? With all the comings and goings of the family, do you think they have time to eat the meals that will be delivered? Would you eat the meals being brought over - from who knows who (strangers)? Dietary restrictions? If you would like to help, give them a few gift cards to local restaurants for take out - that will help more than a spoiled meal that will not be eaten. I do pray that Ryan makes a full recovery - and will be helping the family.

Hi Pat- To clarify, the calendar was created by family friends in response to the McCarthy family expressing need for meals. Any dietary restrictions that the family may have are listed in the calendar. Though I'm sure any help and especially gift cards for takeout would certainly be appreciated and used by the family, according to the admin of the calendar, the homemade meals are indeed being eaten.
