No--your kindness will come back 10-fold...when you least expect it--not the fertility issue--unless that's what you're hoping will happen!

I never quite learned to cook for less than 6 (what I grew up doing), and we don't have kids. I do have shut-in, elderly friends so regularly bring food to them. I have another friend who loves to cook, but lives alone, who contributes to the cause. One thing to do is make things that can be frozen for future use. If they like Italian food, baked casseroles (lasagna, manicotti) can be frozen to be nuked after everyone forgets and she's going through stuff a month or two from now. Ditto home-made hearty soups, stews, chilis. When Mom was sick, I'd sometimes just make stock, freeze it, bring it over and pop it in her freezer. Then she could add whatever she wanted from her pantry and she'd have a meal in minutes. When it was my sister, her husband loved Italian, so I made a basket up with pasta, a container of home-made sauce, some good grated parm, and a salad in a bag.
