Popular food-related gift cards

A gift card is a small gesture that can have a big impact.

Here are four popular food-related gift cards you can send through Meal Train, and how they’re helpful.

DoorDash — A DoorDash gift card is useful for individuals who are recovering from an illness or surgery. From national restaurants to local mom & pops, DoorDash delivers meals straight to the recipient's doorstep. 

Restaurant gift cards, such as Panera, Olive Garden, Chili’s, etc. — Whether they choose to take out or dine in, the recipient can treat themselves to a favorite comforting meal at a time that is most convenient to them.   

Visa and Mastercard — These cards give the recipient the option to purchase what they need when they need it. They can be used at most restaurants and grocery stores. In fact, many grocery stores have prepared meals that are easy to grab and go. (Did someone say rotisserie chicken?) 

Instacart — This is a great choice for individuals who need to maintain a specific diet due to an illness or surgery.  Instacart provides delivery from many local grocery chains and pharmacies, as well as Costco and Target, making these gift cards widely used and highly appreciated.

Participating on a Meal Train is a great way to show your support and care for those around you. If you can’t make a meal for your friend this time, consider sending a gift card. It’s a small gesture of kindness that can have a big impact.
