How do you handle people offering to cook for you after the baby is born?

We had our first baby 4 weeks ago and a lot of people in the community have offered to cook for us or help in other ways. We barely know a lot of them but they were pretty adamant in that they would be happy to help. This is all new to us and we feel awkward saying anything but a polite “no but thank you so much” even though we could really use the help. Is it customary for people to accept this kind of help? If so how do you ask the people that offered? Or are they just being extra polite with their offering and most also decline the help?
