Actual meals, shipped to the other coast, for new parents?

I would like to send actual _meals_ to a friend who is about to have a baby. Problem: I'm East Coast, she's West Coast, and most of the "welcome new baby gift baskets" I've found online seem to be fairly lame? (Though I'm not a parent, so am I wrong?) Help please!
I have looked in the archives concerning good gifts for new parents (thread here, refers to other similar threads
) and most of you recommend the most useful gift I could send would be a healthy quick meal for the parents. My initial thought would have been to just send along this new baby gift basket from Zingerman's
but reading the ingredients I wonder how useful gummy bears and caramel sauce really are when you're tired to your bones and need food? Is there someplace online that you recommend (and as someone without kids, what sorts of meals would you most have liked to receive?) that leans more chicken noodle soup and heat & eat than snacky breads and desserts? (More specifically, they're outside of San Francisco if you know of anything sort of local that I could deal with online for delivery.)
