There is a lot of controversy recently on what to do when someone dies. Here is a Hadith from Sahih Bukhari to guide us in one of the things we can do:

SHARING COMFORT FOOD WITH THE GRIEVED:

Narrated ‘Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) that whenever one of her relatives died, the women assembled and then dispersed (returned to their houses) except her relatives and close friends. She would order that a pot of Talbina be cooked. Then Tharid (a dish prepared from meat and bread) would be prepared and the Talbina would be poured on it. ‘Aisha would say (to the women),“Eat of it, for I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘The Talbina soothes the heart of the patient and relieves him from some of his sadness.’ ”

(Sahih Bukhari , Book #65, Hadith #328)
