A question about mailing perishables

I want to send a friend of mine something in the mail...basically the fixings for a sandwich from a place that she loves (but does not live near anymore) that I work at. I'd have to send sliced deli meat, cheese, and bread. Anybody know how I go about this? Do I have to refrigerate the package myself or is there a way to ship it where they will keep it cold? Do I go to USPS or UPS/FedEx? I have never mailed anything perishable at all, much less a food that has to be kept under 40 degrees.

Well, it is pretty expensive to next day fed x a package. For a few loaves of bread it would've been close to &100. You could do the 2 day, but even then it's not guaranteed. There was someone in another group that did the 2 day ups to ship breastmilk ( it was in a cooler with dry ice, which you'd have to do). Well, they didn't deliver the package till a few days after the scheduled delivery date. The milk spoiled. Good luck, call each place and get an idea of price.

cooler packed and fed -ex'd.  gotta be an overnight delivery.  Depending on the size, its about $40 up for overnight from any of the companies for a small box.
