Food delivery as a gift in Portland, OR?

A friend in Portland just had twins and I'd like to get her a gift certificate to get some meals delivered - can anyone suggest ways to make this happen that will give them a choice between a decent number of restaurants?

Bonus points for non-chain, and w/at least some healthy, vegetarian options.

Googling turns up a few services, but w/out a gift certificate/credit option.

I've never used them, but Delivered Dish has a lot of options and will do gift certificates:

(great idea btw)

Not exactly a meal, but some nice alternatives that are healthy, vegetarian and very delicious! (I've gotten things from both these companies multiple times)

Edible Arrangements are gorgeous: http://www.ediblearrangements.com/fruit-baskets.aspx

Also, Harry and David have a wider selection of things, but fall more on the "unhealthy" side. They do have gift cards, though if you are unsure what to get: http://www.harryanddavid.com

(Their pears are especially delicious though, even out of season--yes they deliver! (: )

Sorry I don't know how to link properly!

Thanks, lilnublet - I overlooked the gift certificate option on the Delivered Dish site when I first looked it over.

Does she like soup? And if so, does she like it delivered by bicycle?

Seconding Delivered Dish, which has been great in the past — haven't used it recently.

It's a chain, but a very local, responsible and loved one: New Seasons Market has a fairly well developed home delivery setup. You could easily order components, or full meal items from their deli (which isn't half bad at all!).

Thanks for the additional suggestions, folks - if there are more kids in the future, I'll definitely make use of them. Soupcycle looks especially good.
