I used a Styrofoam cooler I received with a shipment of frozen food.  I heated fire bricks and placed them in the bottom of the cooler.  I then wrapped my half pans in clean towels. Put the cooler in the back of my van.  When I opened the cooler my food was still hot.  There was however a sticky melted bottom of the cooler in the van.  We learn by our mistakes.
