Neighbors

Our neighbors wife died two days ago. The ladies on my street wants to make dinner for the family for the next few days. They asked me if I would be willing to cook them a dinner with the stipulation that the meal be totally made from organic food. Would you say yes or no to doing this?

I am going to cook a meal for them but I was wondering how others would feel about this.

I think if the family you're cooking it for is an organic only food family it would be nice to do. But if they aren't then cook what you'd like.

Is that how the FAMILY eats, or are they just being picky?

I'd just give them a gift card for somewhere they like to eat. I feel like they're picky and any food anyone gives them will end up in the trash. They probably wouldn't trust it being 100% organic.

Yeah probably... it's not like organic food is difficult to find or buy around here.

Not if money were short. And how would they know? Here organic food is 2-8 times as much. I would not since we don't do it for our family.

I probably would go by the family's dietary needs or habits just to be neighborly. in this situation, nobody is asking me to eat that way or change my diet, I'm just cooking for someone going through a hard time. It's the nice thing to do

As a widow who had a TON of food brought to my house, a lot of which we tossed just due to not being able to eat it all within a couple of days, a gift card to a restaurant would have been very appreciated.
