This service is provided for people who are in acute health need. We arrange for seven days of prepared meals and additional groceries to be delivered once a week to people who are unable to cook for themselves. This service is available for a maximum of six weeks in any 12 month period to aid recovery or whilst long term support is arranged.
This service can also provide for carers and family members, taking into account everyone’s dietetic requirements, allergies, food intolerances, preferences and religious and ethnic requirements.
For 25 years our volunteers prepared and delivered meals on a Sunday. From April 2014 we have used external providers to prepare and deliver seven days worth of food.
