Another way that you can help others is by bringing them meals. Now it is great to bring a hot meal to someone who is in trouble, maybe sick or who has a new baby. You can also prepare what are called freezer meals. These are meals that come in a bag or other sealable container that can be kept in the freezer for a long time and warmed up over the course of time, providing several meals.
