Community meals

We're committed to providing a range of quality services for older people so they can continue to live at home. An essential element of living well at home is having easy access to nutritious meals.

The Community Meals Service delivers hot lunches and tea time meals up to seven days a week for as long as needed, and special dietary needs are also available such as gluten free and Halal meal options.

Meal deliveries

Daily deliveries are made between 11.15am and 1.45pm depending on the area. Please be aware that we're unable to leave hot meals if you're not at home.

To enjoy the hot meal at its best, it should be eaten as soon as it arrives and should not be reheated later in the day.

The hot lunch consists of a main course and dessert and costs 4.

Our tea time meal costs 2, which includes a sandwich and a piece of cake, fresh fruit or yoghurt and a complimentary bottle of water. This meal is delivered at the same time as the lunch time meal and should be stored in a refrigerator until it is eaten. A full tea time menu will be available soon.

Payment

Our preferred method of payment is by direct debit. An invoice will be sent to your home each month for the previous month's meals. This is usually posted around the 10th of each month.

Centre meals

Lunch time meals are also available every weekday at Moorcroft, St Mary's, The Vyne and Brockhill centres. There are a good choice of meals, both hot and cold, and special dietary requirements can be catered for.
