If someone is ill, elderly, or has had a new baby, oftentimes church members rally around these families to take them meals.We've come across a few online tools lately for church meal-maker ministries.
Take Them a Meal.com (http://takethemameal.com/) is a free meal scheduler. The meal coordinator sets up the schedule, then meal providers can sign up for a day or days when they will take a meal. Then the system emails the provider. I haven't personally used this, but sounds like a good idea.
Writeboard.com (http://writeboard.com/) isn't specifically for meals, but the concept is similar. The meal coordinator can set up a free, sharable, web-based document. Then the coordinator can give the meal makers a password so that they can sign up for days to take meals.
Know of any other resources for meal ministries?
