  • Is this a family you already have in mind or are you looking for a family?

    If you're close enough, just wait til they're not home and drop the food off on the porch. Otherwise, you can still always just put a "TO" address on the box to ship it without the "return" address...you just risk the chance of it not arriving there.

  • It's one I have in mind. I guess I'm wondering if there is a place I can "order" the food from and have it delivered.

  • You might be able to contact a local grocery store & ask if they'll deliver something. Explain who you are & why you're doing it.
    Otherwise netgrocery is a site you can order groceries for & have delivered. My mom has used them in the past.

  • In my area we have what's called a Gopher agency...it's online shopping. Maybe they have this in your area?
