    Thanks for organizing this, Stef. A couple of questions:

    1) How many people are we ordering for? Are there any relatives staying with them that need to be fed as well?

    2) Any dietary concerns?

    thanks again.

    Hey Stephanie, i was going to ask about dietary concerns but I see sweatpantsmom beat me to it. So, I’ll also ask if you know of any dietary PREFERENCES. Thanks.

    Just so you know, a group of about 11 bloggers got together and had breakfast items sent to arrive Friday (to get them through the weekend) and Monday (so they will have them for anyone coming over before services on Tues).

    All the work you’ve done has been just amazing.

    Same as above. Concerns? Prefrences?

    So amazing to see the number of people rallying around this family. Thank you, again, for organizing this for them.

    Also curious if there are any dietary concerns/preferences I should be aware of before placing the order.

    I just found this and think it is a freaking brilliant idea. I kept wishing I could send them food in the coming month, after most of the support died down. Now I know how.

    Thank you.

    And yeah, I know I could just donate via PayPal (hey, I put the PayPal code together!), but I know the power of a gift certificate. It sort of forces you to eat pizza.

    And pizza ain’t bad. 😉
