Hmm...in Britain we will send condolence cards and go round if they are friends or family, but its not tradition to give food but if you go to any funeral is always respectful to wear black unless the family has had wishes from the deceased not to.(there are many diverse religions in Britain though and they might be different- i'm protestant)
