What to make for dinner for 4 - 6 people that can handle with a 3 hour car ride with no cooler?

A relative has died and the funeral is Saturday, at a place 3 hours away by car. I found out that one of the things I can do to help is to make dinner for tomorrow (Friday) night.
My main concern is transportation. I can make something today and freeze it but it's been unseasonably warm lately and I don't have a cooler. But mostly thawed chili or stew seems like a much better idea than having something like chilled tuna pasta salad warm up in the car. I could go to a local supermarket and buy sandwich fixings but that feels half-assed. I also don't feel comfortable arriving early and comandeering someone else's kitchen.
- no lasagna (that's slated for Saturday)
- nonadventurous eaters
So what do I make? How do I get it there without spoiling and giving everyone gastrointestinal distress the day before the funeral? Thanks, MeFi.
