A friend's toddler is in the pediatric ICU in a Portland hospital for the foreseeable future, possibly several weeks. They live in McMinnville. A group of us would like to set up some kind of food delivery and/or housecleaning help for them over the duration, both for the parents who are basically living at the hospital and for the family friend and older kids who are at home in McMinnville.
Constraints: none of us is in McMinnville, so we need something that can be arranged over the phone or the internet, but we do have folks in Portland who may be able to help out for hospital runs; food needs to be vegetarian.

Can anyone recommend a reputable and good-quality online vendor of fresh food delivery, especially meats (not beef)? [more inside]

Have you done a prepared-food / delivery diet? Did you like it? Do you know any local (San Francisco) places you would recommend over something national? Thanks!

I own a small food delivery business, and use a scooter/moped for deliveries. I am wondering if anyone has advice or recommendations for a better delivery bag/attachment system than what I am currently using. I currently use this bag
for deliveries. I'm very happy with its size and the fact that it has separate compartments, but I would like something with a little more structural integrity. Either that, or I need to figure out a better way of attaching it to my scooter.
Does anyone have any suggestions for ways I might improve my delivery method? Most ideal would be a detachable, insulated hard-shelled compartment that attached relatively simply to my existing scooter rack
or in place of it using the existing mounting hardware, but I have no idea how I would go about putting that together or having one custom made for a reasonable price. [more inside]

x-mas gift idea for parents of toddler, who are having twins next month: "relaxing night in". Gift card for meal delivery service (anyone know a yummier version of omaha steaks?), some great new movie on dvd, CDs of soothing sounds for the babies (white noise, womb sounds, ocean sounds, etc). Trying to keep it under $150. I've heard omaha steaks are gross, so I'm looking for an alternative. Unless I should scrap the whole thing and get them...? [more inside]

Toronto MeFites: 1.
Which company has the best home delivery for organic veggies and fruits? In case it's relevant, I live alone so variety is preferred to multiples of the same item. 2.
Tips and suggestions for dealing with one of these places? 3.
I'm vegetarian so flesh delivery isn't required.
