Thoughtful Sympathy Gift Ideas – Sympathy Food

Posted by ididnotknowwhattosay on September 23, 2011

We are very pleased to announce the addition of Sympathy Food to our Thoughtful Gift Ideas page on our website at http://www.ididnotknowwhattosay.com/gifts-giftbaskets.html.

Whether you are far away and not able to provide a home cooked meal or life’s hectic schedule does not allow you to cook a full meal, Sympathy Food offers a unique way to provide a nutrition meal to friends and family that are grieving the loss of a loved one.

About Sympathy Food

1. What inspired you to start the Sympathy Food business?

I was sitting in my office at my funeral home one day working on some improvements to my funeral home website. I thought about adding an option where people could order flowers directly from my website. I knew how flowers were the “traditional” sympathy gift but I also knew a lot of people’s frustration with flowers as a less than practical gift. Gifts of comfort food have always been a welcome, nourishing way of letting someone know that “you care” when a death has occurred.

2. What makes Sympathy Food different from sending a food basket?

Sympathy Food sends fully prepared meals that feed a minimum of six people. Fruit or other sympathy baskets are nice but are mostly snack foods.

3. What is unique about Sympathy Food?

We are the first and only online, prepared-foods company that specializes in the sympathy gift market.

4. What do you consider to be your specialty?

We are not a gourmet food site.  We take pride in offering great tasting and nourishing comfort food. A complete meal for the whole family to enjoy.

5. Are you able to provide food for individuals that may be on a special diet or have food allergies?

WE do have some food options that are geared toward vegetarian diets and we are working now on other dietary dishes.

6. How long has Sympathy Food been in business?

I conceived the idea in late 2006 and began work. We started a test market (east of the Mississippi) in January of 2008 and went nationwide in late 2009.

7. Where can Sympathy Food deliver?

Currently we deliver anywhere in the continental United States 1-3 days ground shipment.

8. How do you guarantee that clients receive what they have ordered?

After an order is placed, we personally contact the recipient by phone, let them know that a gift of comfort food has been sent to them and read them the card. We also give them the option of receiving the food as soon a possible or we can delay shipment until a time that suits them better.

9. What would you like our readers to know about your company?

We are an e-commerce site that was created to fill a niche that wasn’t currently being addressed. Flowers are beautiful, but they can be very expensive and are usually taken to the cemetery to wither and die. Families usually always come together during the “many sympathetic moments of life” and usually share a meal. Now there is a gift that lets them know they are in your thoughts and actually meets a need.
