Gift ideas for my dear, (soon-to-be) bedridden mother?

Hi! My mom is having both of her feet operated on next week, and so she'll be out of commission for awhile. My dad is completely and totally useless in the kitchen, and so I figure that the entire time she's off her feet (4+ weeks), cooking is probably not going to be an option. My brother lives in New York, and I am attending university in Oregon, so we can't exactly help her out either.

I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about food-related gifts (homemade or store bought) that we could send her that might be comforting and that might make her recovery time easier.

My parents live on the Peninsula in the Bay Area. Does anyone know of any good food/grocery delivery services out there? Even something as simple as that could be a nice option.
