Funeral food is a memorial tradition whose importance is often overlooked, but, nevertheless, it is a key part of assuring that a time of grief can also be a time of comfort for those who have lost a loved one. In planning a funeral, one of the biggest concerns for many is who will supply the meal for the service, and how will it be prepared and presented with the least hassle, which can certainly seem like a lot to take on. Unfortunately, this causes many to leave this aspect of the service to be tackled last, which is not ideal when one considers that the meal must be prepared, cooked, and then taken to the reception area.
Remember the Family
A final thing to consider in relation to funeral food is to make sure that those in the deceased’s immediate family are well supplied with prepared food for at least a week after a death. During that time, emotions typically are running very high and normal routines are completely out of kilter. Cooking food (and then cleaning up afterwards) is understandably the least thing on the family’s agenda. If this need is not met by others, then, it is easy for nutrition and relaxation needs to take a back seat. And this can lead to even more stress and turmoil for a troubled family. So, if you should find yourself ever wanting to help a family that has lost a loved one, why not volunteer to be their personal chef for several days after a death. Such a gift of funeral food will certainly be very welcomed indeed.
