How It Works



People in need or their advocates set up personal campaign pages on and schedule requests for meal deliveries. Requests are sent to friends and family via email and social media.



Supporters near and far view requests, and easily and securely fulfill them through our meal delivery partner, GALLEY. A calendar on each personal page displays all requests and fulfillment status.



GALLEY receives each order, sends confirmation, and schedules delivery. The recipient can reschedule within a designated timeframe, or cancel and receive meal credits to use at a later date.

Our Story

In 2014, Like Neighbors founder Judy O'Connor coordinated a restaurant meal delivery for an out-of-state friend whose child was critically ill. This seemingly simple act required hours of coordination with emails, texts, and calls to local friends, the child's father, and the restaurant. What did the family want to eat? Where and when should the meal be delivered? What restaurants delivered to their home? Were there dietary restrictions? Judy knew there had to be an easier way for people to request and provide meal deliveries and other services during life's most challenging times.

Like Neighbors now serves those in need in the Washington, DC area, allowing supporters nationwide to send high quality, nutritious meals through our partner meal delivery provider, GALLEY. We'll soon be expanding to other cities and offering additional services, enabling people to give or receive help when it matters most.
