Food Train Meal Ideas

We have participated in quite a few food trains, and they are always nice for helping someone in the community.  But the question is always what to make?  Here are my favorites:

  1. Roast Chicken with Roast Veggies (especially for a new mom right at first).
  2. Meatballs and Spinach Salad.
  3. Carrot Ginger Soup and Breaded Chicken Fingers (almond or coconut flour as breading).
  4. Lasagna.
  5. Rice and a Mild Curry.
  6. Meat Loaf and a salad.

What else have I learned (being on BOTH sides of this custom)?  
  • Pack the meal in something they don't have to get back to you (like a foil roasting pan- see below for link).
  • Add some fruit for breakfast or dessert.
  • Pay attention to how often the food is being delivered, and adjust your portion size accordingly to make more than one meal out of it.
  • Make sure and ask about food allergies and preferences.
  • If you are organizing a meal train, try a website like Take Them a Meal to simplify.
